I mentioned before in my Britt’s Donuts post that we had a really good breakfast out before going to Carolina Beach one morning last week.
I really like to try local places whenever we travel so we decided to try Goody Goody Omelet House right in Wilmington. While searching on Yelp, this place stuck out because it had really consistent reviews. The only negative ones came from the fact that Goody Goody doesn’t accept credit cards, which is typical of some really local breakfast places.
When you first drive in, there is actually a ton of parking. Its located on Market Street, which is a hopping place in Wilmington. When I walked in, I was surprised at how few tables there were. Our party of six (four adults and two kids) had to split up between two tables, which wasn’t a huge deal. You get a good sense that Goody Goody is a fixture of Wilmington – based on its high level of service and how efficient it was. They don’t keep you waiting for your breakfast long and the wait staff was super friendly. They chatted with our kids and several came around to top off your coffee (which was really good). My western omelet was really good. The grilled ham mixed with onions, peppers, tomatoes and cheddar cheese was layered within a thick layer of egg. Trevor got a sausage and cheese omelet and the girls split an order of pancakes and bacon. The pancakes were heavy on the buttermilk (which I always like).
Since we were in the South and we’d never had them before, both Trevor and I got the biscuits (which came with our breakfast). Normally, I opt for the toast, but I was really glad to try the biscuits. They came with a bunch of different jams, and the toasted biscuits slathered in jelly were literally amazing. I could’ve eaten a ton of them.
Highlights: The service, coffee, western omelet and griddled biscuits
Misses: I really do wish they took credit cards and they serve fake syrup (yes, that’s important to us)
All in all, it was a great breakfast out and we’ll definitely be in again!
That wraps up all my travel posts from Wilmington, but we have more travel coming later this summer that I can’t wait to share, including a trip to camp in Maine.
