I took a break from my beloved Polker’s this weekend and had brunch at Cafe Golo over on Lombard St. (at Gough). I tried my first breakfast burrito (First! I know!) there and was pleased, and my date had an omelette that was yummy — and both very affordable. But I must admit this is my new favorite spot because the customer service is downright delightful. The spot is family-owned, and to say our servers were sweet would be an understatement. I left with a serious case of “Will you be my mother?” after our adorable waitress said “thank you for your business” to every soul who walked out of the door.
They also treated us with some complimentary pieces of delicious banana bread, and I couldn’t help but buy a loaf to take away. Yum! Turns out the owner also owns a bakery, and sells his breads at local farm markets, where is also where they pick up all of their fresh-as-can-be produce. They tossed a few extra veggies-of-the-day into my date’s omelette, which was a pleasant surprise. Get over to Cafe Golo (1602 Lombard) as soon as you can.
