Goed Eten has reemerged in a new location
Remember this (sweet & savoury) waffle shop in Kensington Market that closed suddenly a couple of years ago? It reopened last month at 188 Ossington Ave. Has anyone been yet?

I went just today!
Johann was there. He mentioned all their meats are locally sourced and the ice cream and breads were house made. I like that they have loose leaf tea and have long hours everyday.
Today was their first Monday open, though he said they've been open since July 15.
I got a waffle and country sausage. The waffle was light and crisp just as at Le Petit Dejeuner and the sausage had good spicing and even medium grind. Johann added a complementary scoop of tangerine ice cream which was brightly orange and pleasantly sweet. My co-eater had the bicky burger and fries. The fries were skin on and hot and crispy. I didn't try the burger but he said the patty tasted similar to my sausage (a beef/pork combo).
I'm so glad this place is open so we can get these waffles close by.

I went when they had been open for just a few weeks! I was starving after attending a pre-natal yoga class down the street. The woman started chatting to me about my pregnancy, and the man was there too, telling me about parenthood. Maybe he was the owner?
Anyway, I finally got around to ordering a sandwich and found out that they didn't have debit set up yet, and was pretty bummed since I didn't have any cash on me. I was all set to walk out the door and get my meal elsewhere, and the man said he'd make me a sandwich for free! He whipped up a beautiful roasted veggie sandwich for me and I promised to be back, next time with cash.
I doubt they are really in the habit of handing out free food, but I think the combo of the conversation we had started, my obvious pregnancy, and the fact that they were just freshly opened worked together to deliver me a delicious, satisfying, FREE sandwich!
I haven't been able to get back yet, but I can't wait to actually give them business. I haven't been so impressed in a while.
