Too darned good!

Only one complaint about Goldie's: They need a bigger restaurant! The food is so good there's always a line. I've tried everything, and it's all good. Been there with family, friends, business appointments. Just tell them to get a bigger restaurant!

We had omelets with biscuits and coffee and everything was great. The wait staff are friendly and attentive, in fact we had a few waiters helping us.We got right in, no wait at all, we sat upstairs in the loft area. It's an old building in downtown Boise, in a very cool area, near the Basque block. We will definitely... More

Have been to this restaurant a few times. Always excellent food and service. Sometimes there can be a long wait but we have always had luck getting a table in the adjacent coffee shop and enjoying an espresso while we wait.

best place in boise to have breakfast. is really a little place, but they make a mean breakfast. really nice menu with a wide variety of offerings. i almost always go for eggs and grits. however, the omlettes, pancakes, and french toast all look pretty darn good. lots of local color. highly recommend

This was my second trip to Goldy's. The first time, my husband and I sat in the balcony and I got the Trav's Famous Breakfast Burrito. It was so tasty I got it again this time, but decided to go halvsies with someone so I could also try the Italian Frittata. I was nervous to order it on its own.... More

Goldie's is the gold standard for breakfast in Boise. They do not take reservations. You might have to wait a little while but leave your name and number in party and they will give you device that let's you know your table is ready. Food is delicious. Daily specials are interesting but core menu has nice variations of eggs, meat,... More

One morning I went to Goldy's with an old friend. I only had the seasonal fruit plate and my friend had some type of oat meal. The food was good but our seating felt so cramped. Several times my friend and I had to scoot out of the way as people tried to get around us. Neither of us are... More

This is a popular restaurant and for good reason. The food is local, fresh, unique and perfectly cooked - never greasy. It is the most beloved for its breakfasts. I love their red flannel hash, their amazing list of choices for breakfast meats and their homemade jams. The restaurant is small with lots of intimate nooks for seating but won't... More
