Stephanie Izard, James Beard "Best Chef: Great Lakes," and Food & Wine "Best New Chef 2011," opened Little Goat with BOKA Restaurant Group in December 2012. Following the success of Girl & the Goat, Little Goat Diner serves the Izard take on classic diner offerings.

Adjacent, you'll find the Little Goat Coffee Bar - offering pastries and freshly brewed Dark Matter coffee. While you are there you can also purchase merchandise and Stephanie's This Little Goat line of sauces and spices.

Located within Little Goat Bread is our bar - where craft beer, wine and cocktails are served.

Reservations reflect only a portion of our available seating and hold a seat in the diner whether at a booth or our communal table. If you can't find a time slot that best suits your request, we invite you to walk in and join us!

Delicious food and coffee. The apple spice pancakes are some of the best pancakes I’ve ever had. I didn’t want a full order and the waitress accommodated me and gave me 2 instead of 3 pancakes. Great ambiance. Will be back!

This was my second time visiting and was even better than the first, there are so many unique options and everything was cooked to perfection. There are great flavor combinations and the staff was friendly and service was quick despite a packed restaurant. Would highly suggest going for brunch and making a reservation.

Super tasty, accommodated my food allergies and preferences. Wishing they had more of a variety of souvenirs to buy and from the sister restaurants too, as the others weren’t open for breakfast.

Little Goat is a great standby for a quick meal that is comfort food meets creativity. Their all-day breakfast dishes are great, but don’t miss out on the sammies or burgers either.

Everything was great minus the general appearance of their staff. Overall, while nice they seemed very grungy and Dirty. Considering requiring your staff to clean their appearance before coming to work.

We had a great time for an anniversary; and they were so sweet and gave us a little extra treat to celebrate. Delicious food and thoughtful service. It is loud though, which can be a drawback for a large group.

We never miss a chance to have breakfast at Little Goat when we're in town; there's something for everyone here (the adventurous eater and the picky eater alike). Portions are more than generous, so come hungry. Even the simple breakfast dishes are exceptional (their yogurt, honey, and homemade granola is the best I've had).

Little Goat was exactly what I expected. In a good way. Creative updates on some classic diner foods. I had the reuben on a recommendation from the waitress and it was one of the best reuben's I've had. Everybody else at the table enjoyed their food. The server was good, very friendly. I've eaten at Girl and the Goat and was blown away by it. I wasn't expecting to be blown away by Little Goat, but definitely enjoyed it. I'd go again for a casual dinner.

My friends and I had an amazing time. The food was amazing. All the flavors came together and just melted in our mouths. I’m sure we overate. They also accommodate food allergies and are careful to let you know if anything could be potentially problematic.

Busy late afternoon, were sat quickly and brought menus promptly. Coffee was fresh even for so late in the day. Server was a bit curt, perhaps had a busy lunch and was worn out. Chicken sandwiches were excellent, pickled jalapeños really made it.

Service was quick and efficient. Really liked our server. For two people, we ordered 4 entrees and it was plenty of food: this little piggy went to china, yum, goat chili cheese fries, and the tonkatsu sandwich. Great value. Everything was extremely tasty. A very satisfying meal. We look forward to coming back and trying more of their menu items!

My server was AMAZING as was the food. What stood out the most was Matthew Condon who works as a butcher. He is such a great worker and extremely personable and just absolutely the best. Matt is the reason I go to the Little Goat Diner at all. He deserves to be recognized for all the hard work he does and should be given a raise! 10/10 would eat here again.

Another exceptional example of Izard’s talents and ability to balance flavors. Have the pork belly and scallions pancake and the chickpea salad with chicken. Both were fantastic, flavor-packed, and balanced enough to where you didn’t feel bogged down after finishing the dishes.

After we were seated, nobody came to greet us for at least 10 minutes. When the waitress finally came, she was in a foul mood and definitely took our order with an attitude.

Food was unimpressive, or maybe just the meal did not start off right with the service. Also didn’t help that a fly was in our water!

I know a lot of people like this place, but probably my last visit here.

Wonderful place - a diner with a not-so-diner food. We had a sloppy goat (Sloppy Joe with goat meat and no red sauce on a brioche bun) and a chicken pot pie (a savory, delicious chicken stew surrounded by a sturdy but flaky crust). Mmmm. If you can't get into Girl and the Goat, try the Little Goat Diner. But get reservations - they fill up fast.
