Ordered a mimosa and waiter was a jerk claiming my ID was "fake." So I went to another place to have my ID scanned (have never had a problem with it before) and worked just fine! I am 28 :(

Great, cozy atmosphere. Extensive traditional menu. Excellent, friendly service. Limited seating, so plan on a wait. Small counter seating available. A real pleasure!

Goldy's is a place where regulars cheerfully start lining up at 6:00 am (7 am on weekends) to wait for the doors to be unlocked. (You can first grab a cup of Goldy's coffee around the corner to make the waiting easier. Once inside, the waitstaff will cheerfully and endlessly refill your cup for free.) The menu offers lots of... More

Great breakfast, but it is crowded and the wait is pretty big most days. And you don't really get ambiance, etc., just sort-of fancy breakfast that is well prepared.

Wonderful menu with lots of options. Always a good meal. Good service. VERY crowded and that makes it noisy.

I had a fritata with spinach and three cheese mix. It was subtle, not ALL CHEESE. A huge plus. They could have backed off the spinach/nutmeg sauce that smothered it, but i just smooshed it to the side. My lady friend had a waffle...very good. We shared a fruit cup. It's is stupendously good. I've never been to Goldy's when... More

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...
