Good offers a terrific deal: The breakfast special allows you to choose any egg dish, pancakes or (practically anything on the menu) plus a homemade bread or side and a choice of a Chipotle Mary or Passionfruit Mimosa. We both chose to go with the special.
was cakey, pocked with raisins & pumpkin seeds! The pumpkin seeds were original - it was the first time I'd seen them added to a pumpkin bread, but it seems to make perfect sense. They gave the bread a nuttier texture and flavor, which I liked. The bread had a nice spiciness to it, but I could have done without the powdered sugar on top.
The cheddar cornbread was also delightful. Crispy on outside, but soft and very buttery on the inside with a pretty mild cheese flavor.
We ordered the brunch special item ($1 surcharge added to the price of the brunch deal) - two eggs any way with sweet potato hash, , sweet corn and red peppers. A transitional seasonal dish - the tomatoes and corn a slight reminder of the summer fading out of view with the heavier sweet potato and sausage a hint of the colder weather approaching. This was really tasty and different than most brunch dishes out there.
Basil and goat cheese scramble on with cherry tomatoes and asparagus. Usually i don't order s because they are unappealingly dry and flavorless. Here, the eggs were perfectly fluffy. The goat cheese was mixed in well, helping to soften the texture and adding a creamy flavor to the eggs. A large, leafy sprig of basil sat on top. I had to rip it up to get bites of it with the eggs; it might've been better had that already been chopped. The bread crust was somewhat hard to cut through but the soft, chunky bread was a great base for the scramble.
Maybe Good banks on the fact that it will always be better than just good. On this occasion, it most certainly was.
