Comfort in the east end - Grumbel's Deli VS Goody's Diner

Googs Jun 25, 2011 08:10 AM

I simply can't decide which one delivers comfort best. Has anyone else tried both? Do you have any preferences?

If you haven't heard of Goody's, you should probably know this:

But's here's the surprising part. This is Goody's Chef de Cuisine:

      Home-style cooking done well. Baked goods, fudge, old-fashioned British and German fare, lovely soups and sandwiches.

      OK, I would be curious to see what the breakfast s are like at Goody's. May need to check it out!

        I've been to neither, but thanks for the tip! Hasn't Grumbel's been reviewed on Chowhound?

          And the answer is... BOTH!

          Grumbel's if you wanna feel like you're sitting at your grandma's kitchen table. Goody's Diner if you wanna feel like you're still in high school hanging with your best friends.

            I was all fired up to visit Goody's this past weekend, but then realized it's only open Monday-Friday. Guess I'll have to take a vacation day to get there!
