You won't come away hungry!

We lived in Boise for 38 years before we finally tried this place. It has a reputation for being hard to get into for breakfast, so plan ahead. The servings are huge - enough to split a meal between two light eaters. Delicious too.

Heard nothing but good things about this place so when they said it was a 30 minute wait, I figured it was worth it. Once we ordered it took 45 minutes to get our breakfast which was amazing considering it is such a small place. The corn beef hash was horrible. Barely any potatoes and very bland. I ordered the...

Service was great, food was so-so. If you like really sweet breakfast food, you'll love this place. My fried eggs were so sweet I couldn't taste the pepper or paprika on the eggs- instead they were almost carmelized- not what I was looking for with eggs. Blueberry pancakes were good, but again, really sweet. Expect at least 30 minute wait-... More

We go to Goldy's at least 10 times a year, as out of town company loves to go there, and we go alone if we time it right. They are a small cafe, get very busy and you can count on a wait if you go after 8:00 any weekend morning, possibly a wait on a weekday too. They used... More

I used to come to this place every single day when i moved to Boise, having breakfast here just delightful, the food, drinks, serving sizes and even the service itself is good. atmosphere could be a high end consumers but still the servings are big enough to keep you going for the entire day, cant wait to go back soon!

Always my first choice if I have the time to wait for a table. Usually have a nice special, but all the regular menu items are great.

This is a small restaurant, which makes it very cozy dining experience. I believe there is seating for 45. We got in right away, and had prompt professional service. I ordered the Andalusian eggs, an in house preparation, and had to take a picture of this colorful dish. I especially appreciated an easy substitute for toast, as I am gluten... More
