Who couldn’t love Goldy’s “Create Your Own Breakfast Combo”? Select a main course, which can be eggs, chicken fried steak, or a salmon filet, then take your pick from long lists of meats, potatoes and breads. Among the not-to-be-missed meats are habanero chicken sausage, Basque chorizo, and pork sausage infused with sage. The potato roster includes not only hash browns and sweet potato hash browns but also red flannel hash (spuds, beets and bacon), plus cheese grits. Among available breads are fresh-baked biscuits, sourdough, and cinnamon raisin walnut.

Hollandaise sauce is fantastic: smooth and fluffy with an ethereal lemon perfume. It comes on several variations of eggs Benedict. There’s eggs Blackstone (black forest ham and tomato); a dilled salmon filet blanketed with slivers of cucumber and sauce; even a veggie benny, which is sauce over broccoli, asparagus and tomato. Other choice breakfast items: frittatas, breakfast burritos, cinnamon rolls, and sticky buns. Pancakes are light and fluffy, hardly wanting syrup. Late summer, huckleberry pancakes are a frequent special.

A stylish little place with an open kitchen that affords diners a view of breakfasts being cooked and plated, Goldy’s can be maddeningly crowded, making meal service less than speedy; and on weekends you’ll almost surely wait for a table. But if your goal is having the best breakfast in Boise, this is the place to go.
