Good day is a staple breakfast location for business meetings. Although it is pretty much one of the only real options outside of downtown, the food and service is always exceptional. My personal favorites are the smoke salmon Benedict or fresh made granola.

First time visiting and liked the food. Service was okay, not stellar but not awful. Food choices were plentiful and there are breakfast options on the lunch menu which is the direction I went. (I love breakfast anytime!) The room has high ceilings and as it filled up it was impossible to have a meaningful conversation - my throat was... More

This is my go-to place now. I love it here, the food, the people, the ambiance, the convenience to St Louis Park, MN. And wait until you try their deserts ! Always take home a treat for tomorrow, too. Yum

Little did we know that a "quick dinner" before the movie would be so good. The waitress was welcoming and helpful. She suggested Iggy's Fried Egg Sandwich. "It was the bomb" - avocado, shaved French ham, tomato, fried onion and cheddar on brioche - how good is that? I had Millie's Meatloaf Dinner. I look for meatloaf when I go... More

We had six people. I called one hour before to put our names on a list. When I got there they said another 30 minutes in the hall with 50 people waiting. I suggest reservations that are honored or I will not return.

I often watch Food Network's Diners, Drive-ins, and Drives with Guy Fieri's and we've found a lot of great food this way. Today's was no exception. In this big, airy, bright restaurant, my husband and I shared a breakfast of corned beef hash, fried eggs, and one of their specialties - the apple soufflé pancake. You won't believe how huge...

The dishes we tried (quiche of the day, and corn beef hash) were quite tasty, yet not exceptional. They both arrived at our table a bit on the "warm" as opposed to "hot" side in terms of temperature. Service was attentive and excellent, and the greeter found us a nice table that wasin a quiet part of the restaurant5 so... More

Went for a busy breakfast during Christmas vacation. Seated promptly after a short wait and were able to order immediately. Fried egg sandwich, crepes, almond French toast were all superb. Stephanie was a great server.

I met a former colleague for breakfast. The place was packed, but service was very good. I had the quiche special-chicken and artichoke and it was very tasty. We were not rushed despite how busy it was. I would definitely go back.
