Breakfast and History at St. Louis' Goody Goody Diner

St. Louis 002
I’ve eaten many breakfasts in St. Louis over the years, but somehow never made it to the Goody Goody Diner , a 1948-era chrome and formica place on Natural Bridge Avenue that is a St. Louis landmark, and rightfully so. For more than 60 years, the Goody Goody belonged to the Connelly family, but at the end of April 2014 it was sold to new owners. Happily, my experience in the second week of May was a good one, so hopefully the owners are continuing the place’s great tradition, and what a tradition it is. Breakfast is what brought me to the Goody Goody, and the diner has numerous options for that most important meal of the day. Omelettes are my thing, so I ordered my favorite bacon and cheese omelette, and was very pleased with what I got. Chicken and waffles is also on the menu, as well as pancakes, and of course there are plenty of non-breakfast options. One would expect such a historic spot to be full of tourists, but most of the customers seemed to be from the local neighborhood, giving the place a friendly, hometown feel. The Goody Goody Diner is definitely worth a visit when in St. Louis.
