Good food, nice staff, close to everything in town. And the nicoisse salad was amazing. Take the table outside next to the water and the palm trees, enjoy the sun and relax.

We went to The Good Home for lunch today and were pleasantly surprised at how nice the $10 cabinet lunches looked. A huge chicken salad was made on request and we were charged just $9 each. The staff were very attentive, great service. We will be back.
