My friend SZ has been raving on and on about how good the brunch is here, so I have been wanting to try this amazing brunch for a long time. Thrillist also wrote about the brunch, so it has to be good. So my friend JC and I came here after church one Sunday to try their brunch... unfortunately, because we had gone to a later church service, we did not make it here until 5 minutes before brunch ended. Which meant we would have to order off their lunch menu :( Brunch is served here on weekends from 10AM-3PM, with lunch/dinner servied Tuesdays through Sundays from 11AM until 9:30/10PM. Paid parking is available in two lots nearby. I had prepared myself on what brunch items to order, so I was at a loss looking at the lunch menu. In the end my friend and I got the following to share: -- SLOW-ROASTED PORK BANH MI: pickled daikon & carrots, cilantro-maggi mayo; spicy fries or slaw; add red boat bacon to any sandwich, +$2.50 The banh mi itself was $11; the spicy fries (with chiles, garlic, and cilantro) are included in the cost but we added their cilantro-maggi mayo for $1. The fries were pretty good and I liked the mayo--I'm glad we got it even though it cost extra. The banh mi, however, was just okay. And for $11 it should be a lot MORE than okay since better banh mi sandwiches can be found in the SGV for a LOT cheaper. We were pretty bitter about the pricing on this sandwich. -- CHICKEN POT PIE: savory curry topped with a buttermilk biscuit; please allow 30 minutes for pies to bake This seemed like it would be a really good dish so we waited the 30 minutes for it to be prepared. We did not realise how large it would be so we each ordered one--that was our first mistake. No, actually, our first mistake was ordering this dish to begin with. Ordering two of them was our second mistake. It ended up being like a soupy chicken curry and both of us hated it. JC forced herself to finish it but she was SO unhappy the entire time. I decided to bring most of it home so I could try to fix it. While the brunch here might be amazing, the food for lunch/dinner is most definitely NOT. My friend JC is still traumatised by this place and refuses to come back; I still want to try their brunch though to see if they can be redeemed. Two stars for now, but hopefully once I come for brunch I will be able to update my review to a higher star rating.

Very tasty local food oriented menu with Vietnamese dishes just off Fig in Highland Park.It used to be the new kid on the block but you will see things are growing around these parts with new cafes and shops blooming through the cracks. Think Pho Ga, Curries, Banh Mis, addicting Garlic Fries, Vegan friendly but not limited BYOB or BYOW. I really like the potpie it is worth the wait or get it to go-no problem. The pop up morning coffee and savory meat pies are a real treat I love the atmosphere with open ceiling and friendly tables and counters. The owner and staff are friendly and accommodating.

Love the Asian fusion food. Staff are super friendly and prices are decent. Also love how the owner is a big supporter of community nonprofit groups.

Trendy spot in highligh park. Friendly staff, loud/buzzy environment. Everything we tried this evening were carefully prepared and well presented. However, flavor is flat/ uninteresting and the pho is perhaps the worst I have ever tried. Looking for well packaged vietnamese food experience, Good Girl dinette is probably a decent place to go otherwise drive 15 minutes to Alhambra and you can have better food at 1/2 of the price.

My husband and I REALLY want to like Good Girl Dinette. We really do. But... This is obviously very wealthy hipster-aimed joint as evidenced by their extreme high prices ($30 a Thanksgiving pie???!) and Instagram account. Our first time we got breakfast. Good coffee, as my picky husband noted. Service, disorganized, snotty, slow, not great. Not too many customers that morning either, so hard to understand why this was. Perhaps the owner doesn't believe in retaining good wait staff, not a good sign for a joint that's been in the neighborhood for years. A tiny bowl of rice porridge, $12. Too much overwhelming onion flavor. Disappointing, but yesterday we decided to give GGD another chance and go for dinner. The rains had stopped and we found parking easily across the street. Our blonde waitress was attentive and awesome. We ordered veg pho, veg pot pie, fries (we asked for the spicy peppers on the side). Fries arrived first and were very dry, overly done, peppers not on the side. Good mayo sauce but to charge a dollar extra for that is, in my opinion, too much. Great homemade soda, though. There was a large party that were coming in and we could tell the already short staff were feeling harrassed and overworked. Water glasses refilled once and neglected the rest of the evening. My husband got stomach ache from eating the pho--not a good sign. I got my pot pie and hated it--no previous warning from wait staff on the pie being so overly spicy and the crust was bitter-tasting. Two bites in asked for it to go (politely), and ordered the cauliflower banh mi. Now that was delicious--the bread crusty and perfect, the slaw just the right accompaniment. Our bill--a ridiculously high $58. No offer whatsoever from the wait staff to make up for the horrible pie, not even an apology, just a "Uhh..." & zoned out expression. We paid and even tipped since we're classy customers. But not that happy. Chucked the veg pot pie in garbage after we left. In short, we're still on the lookout for a local joint that has its priorities straight--good, reasonably priced food and drink that doesn't make my husband ill, great service--to replace our beloved Swingers' Diner in WeHo. I think it'll be awhile before we come back--if we do.
