I’m already a huge fan of Goldies Restaurant off Taylor Road in Naples. It’s listed as one of my favorites on my Dining in Naples page.

But after what happened yesterday while having lunch there with my husband, I can now say I’m an uber-fan of Goldies. We each had great salads, me the tossed salad with a scoop of egg salad and he the Mediterranean. When we reached for our check to pay, we found this taped to it:

Goldies Restaurant Naples


What a nice surprise! We smiled about that for the rest of the day.

If you’re not familiar with Goldies, it’s a small place with a few tables inside and a couple of tables out and there’s always a line. Breakfast and lunch only till around 2 p.m. Monday through Saturday and closed on Sunday.

On Mondays Goldies serves a free short stack of pancakes with every breakfast order, while supplies last. And their homemade peanut butter sauce and strawberry jam, that they serve with every waffle and pancake order, are yummy.

Be sure to check them out at 5400 Taylor Road in Naples. Big menu, great service and fantastic prices.

Thank you, Goldies. That was a special treat!
