If Loving you is wrong I don't want to be right: The Goody Goody Omelet House in Wilmington

Mark stopped by the Goody Goody Omelet House since his grandson Jackson (see our photo on the homepage) had developed a taste for blueberry pancakes and I was getting burned out on the Dixie Grill. I don't know how many years the Goody Goody Omelet house has been around but I can't remember it not being at its bright orange location on Market street. During my mostly misspent youth and early adulthood in Wilmington I used to go there to salve any number of unfortunate rendezvous, disappointments, bad decisions, etc. with the giant, fluffy omelets, toasted grocery store bread and bracing coffee. (For that matter, I also used to go there to celebrate various lucky scenarios I had found myself in with the fluffy omelets, etc.)

What a strange experience to take my grandson there and have him enjoy the same fine southern cuisine as his papa did many years ago. Everything seemed the same which is a big comfort in the shell game culture of the Port City. However, I was shocked, shocked! to find out the Goody Goody T-Shirts had skyrocketed from 5.00 to the unbelievable price of $14.00. I guess it just goes to show you that nothing stays the same...

see the website: There is apparently a film about the place from 2005..
