GOLDYS BREAKFAST BISTRO
108 S. Capitol Blvd., Boise, 345-4100
Tucked on the side of Capitol Boulevard, Goldys has a unique feel that sets it apart from other breakfast restaurants.
As you enter, curtains seclude the dining room from the front door with the greeter immediately to your right, ready to help hungry customers be seated. The interior isnt gigantic, but its not suffocating, either, and it allows patrons at each table to fully engage in conversation.
The food is what gives Goldys its sterling reputation, though. With plenty of fresh local ingredients, Goldys serves all kinds of breakfasts eggs, pancakes, French toast, sausage, bacon, muffins, frittatas, biscuits and gravy, scones and lots of other options. In a 2002 issue, Bon Appetit magazine named Goldys as one of Americas 10 favorite places for breakfast, specifically mentioning the Andalusia eggs.
Although the line to get a table is sometimes long, the experience is definitely worth it. There are plenty of times when you can walk right in and be seated.
Goldys is open from 6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on weekdays and from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on weekends, so whether you get up at noon or wake up the roosters, there is still time to start the day with a wonderful meal.
