Inside Dublin’s Dam Good Café

Dam Good Cafe is a family-owned restaurant that serves both breakfast and lunch. Located in Dublin just across from the DMV, it is a popular spot for many. Between the fresh food options and reasonable prices, there is no reason not to try it. Dam Good Cafe is open every day, except Monday from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Both breakfast and lunch are available to customers all day, and all the food is always made fresh. Fresh food means it is friendly for picky eaters. Kayla Pruss, who works at the Cafe says, “I think Dam Good is very friendly for picky eaters. Anything on the menu you can customize to your liking so you’ll never be unhappy with what you choose to get. They also have some more basic foods for very picky eaters but at the same time it is freshly made and tastes great.” Any modification customers choose to make, Dam Good will always be willing to make it.

Some popular breakfast foods on the menu include the breakfast burrito, pancakes, sticky bun french toast, and omelets. The breakfast burrito is a favorite among many people; including scrambled eggs, cheese, pico de gallo, sausage, and salsa on the side. Kayla Pruss, who works at Dam Good Cafe says, “I would recommend the breakfast burrito. This is a safe option for breakfast. It is stuffed with eggs, cheese sausage, pico, and more and comes with home fries on the side. It is super filling and will not leave you hungry.” The pancakes are another favorite including buttermilk, fruit, walnut, and chocolate chip. Dam Good is very generous with their portions since these pancakes are as big as the plates. The sticky bun french toast is typically a special every weekend, and it is a fan favorite. Coming with a side of bacon, this breakfast is a perfect balance of sweet and savory. The omelets are one of the most ordered items on the menu. There are nine different omelet options including meat-lovers, veggie, western, spinach, tomato & feta, cheesesteak, buffalo chicken, cheese, turkey chili, and create your own. Every omelet includes a side of home fries and toast, which can be switched out for other sides of your choosing.

Lunch is served all day, and there are a lot of options. Out of all the choices on the lunch menu, some of the most popular include salad, wraps, and fish tacos. There are lots of different salad options, but some of the most popular include the buffalo chicken salad and turkey chili salad. Both of these cost $9.99, which is reasonable for the portions. The buffalo chicken comes with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, peppers, shredded cheese, tortilla straws, and fried buffalo chicken, with blue cheese dressing. Jennifer McCarthy, who frequently orders lunch from Dam Good Cafe, says, “I always go for the buffalo chicken salad, the portions are huge. I can never finish the full salad, but I like how I always have leftovers for the next day.” The turkey chili salad is another popular choice, coming with Dam Good’s turkey chili served on lettuce, tomato, onions, cheese, and tortilla straws. Wraps at Dam Good Cafe are also favored, especially the crispy chicken wrap, costing $9.49. This wrap includes crispy chicken, honey mustard, shredded cheese, lettuce, and tomato. Kayla Pruss states, “My favorite lunch item is the crispy chicken wrap. The wrap itself is very fresh and the chicken mixed with everything in the wrap is very tasty, it is also very filling which is something I like”. The fish tacos are one of, if not the most well-liked items on the menu. These cost $9.99, and include fried haddock in a soft tortilla shell with mayo, then topped with shredded lettuce coated in sweet chipotle dressing and pico de gallo. The tacos also come with homemade tortilla chips and salsa.
