When we first bought our home and met with the previous owner to get our keys, he said, "You are lucky to live one of the best restaurants in town... The Good Neighbor Restaurant. It is right down the street. Tell the owners that I said 'Hi!'" Heeding this advice, we gave them a try one morning for breakfast and have been devotees ever since!
Open for breakfast and lunch, closing each day at 3:00 pm, this is a true neighborhood joint. But they have delicious food with the right amount of comfort. We have had business meetings there, friendly luncheons, and we make a point to visit each time our relatives visit from the east coast. We ate there long before we discovered our allergies but have never stopped because they have such an extensive menu. Their daily offering of soups is perfect, our favorite is the vegetable. We always ask for a side of fruit, no matter what time of day it is. And the cottage fries are not to be missed.
Recently Ella and I were enjoying some "Mommy & Ella time". We went to the gym, got a mani-pedi and when I asked where she wanted to have lunch she said, "Good Neighbor!" What more do you need? The staff is amazing and the iced tea hits the spot. Check it out if you are near Universal Studios...
