Best breakfast in town and I love coming here for dinner. It can be a bit of a wait on the weekends but definitely worth the wait. The flavors of the food explode in your mouth it doesn't matter what you order. The beignets are amazing, better then the one I had in New Orleans.

I've been to Good Day Cafe several times for breakfasts. Every time my experience is fun, tasty and congenial. Not fancy, just basic good food. Get there early and be ready for a wait to be seated on weekends and even sometimes during the week. Noisy and friendly.

The vibrant atmosphere (even early morning!), cheerful staff, and delicious food makes this place a must if you're in the area (or not!). All our orders were perfectly done, oven pancakes, omelettes, hashbrowns, and the coffee were all great. You must try their home made jam, we took a couple of jars back with us to Missouri. Its a delicacy.

Stepping into the Good Day Cafe automatically makes it feel good. The food combined with the atmosphere makes it one of my top Breakfast locations in the Twin Cities. The 49er pancakes are great!

Good Day Cafe was a new find for us and the menu was quite intriguing. Glazed Donut pancakes were the first thing that caught my eye, but ultimately I went for a more familiar favorite. I really enjoyed my breakfast immensely. I had a French omelet (traditional rather than the puffy souffle type) with ham and brie. The omelet was... More

Our relatives told us this is a really good place to enjoy breakfast so we tried it. Considering how many cars were in the parking lot, good indicator, I figure I would enjoy my breakfast. There is plenty of parking available but getting there is a little weird as you need to drive through the Metropolitan Ballroom parking lot to... More

We were a large group of 10 and we called ahead to see if they could accommodate us and they said they could if we could get there in 15 min. Well, we took a wrong turn, (now who doesn't do that occassionally?) and another group of the same number got there before us. The Staff was so apologetic and... More

I've been here for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and I've never left disappointed. The food here is great at any time, and the service is phenomenal. Breakfast was my favorite, but I love a great omelette. This is definitely a go-to for breakfast meetings.

Came here for a business lunch, and it was exceptional. Service was superb, and every plate was fresh and delicious. If I had one knock about this place, it would be that it gets loud when its full and everyone is talking over the people next to them. But the food is worth the hassle of a loud room. Everything...
