I first went to Goldy’s Breakfast Bistro on my very first trip for the blog Boise. I ranted and raved about Goldy’s amazing eggs benedict to no end. So when Stephanie realized our road trip to Salt Lake City, was going through Boise, she wanted to go. The second she suggested it I was on board. I was hoping to see if their other dishes matched up to those amazing eggs benedict.
Goldy’s Breakfast Bistro Food
As we were road tripping with the Puppies, we were unable to eat inside the restaurant. We planned on one of us running to the restaurant to place a to go order. As I was dealing with a sick little Monster puppy (more on him later), Stephanie ran to Goldy’s Breakfast Bistro to put in the order.
About 20 minutes after leaving to place the order, Stephanie returned with our food. I ordered Trav’s Famous Breakfast Burrito. This consists of Goldy’s potatoes, three scrambled eggs, sauteed peppers, onions, melted cheddar and Pepper Jack, plus choice of meat in a spinach wrap.
I am not sure whether it getting only a few hours sleep after arriving at the hotel at 6am, the stress of having to deal with a sick puppy, or whether their breakfast burrito was just not as good as the eggs benedict. But the breakfast burrito, while extremely good, did not spark the same joy within me that the benedict did. Despite being among my favorite breakfast burritos, This breakfast burrito did not do anything differentiate itself from most others.
Stephanie ordered a two egg scramble with sundried tomatoes, gorgonzola cheese, with a side of corned beef hash. Sundried tomatoes are stephanie’s new favorite ingredient paired with eggs. The sharpness of the sun dried tomatoes balanced the richness of the eggs and saltiness of the Gorgonzola cheese. Given that Goldy’s Breakfast Bistro’s massive portion sizes, Stephanie felt like she could have done without the hash. Since having this scramble Stephanie has been on a huge sundried tomato kick ordering them with any breakfast she can.
As I stated in my first review, Goldy’s Breakfast Bistro is a bit more expensive than I would normally spend on breakfast. The average entree is likely to cost about $12-$15 a person before tax and tip. For the two of us the bill came to about $24 before taxes and tip. Despite the price, Goldy’s Breakfast Bistro is possibly the best breakfast is Boise and well worth the money. While the Burrito did not live up to the eggs benedict, both Stephanie and I thoroughly enjoyed our breakfasts and would stop by again if next time we are in Boise.
