Golda is a daytime cafe in Bed-Stuy where you can sit with a coffee and pastry and work on your laptop or stop by for a quick meal. For how small and casual this place is, the menu is surprisingly large, and you can get anything from a fried chicken sandwich, to an acai bowl, to a hunk of deep-fried cauliflower with a magenta sauce that you’ll want to take a picture of. The food is Mediterranean/American and slightly experimental - and while we probably wouldn’t order the strawberry foie gras toast again, everything else is pretty solid. Just know that the space is both very attractive and very tiny, and that there will most likely be a crowd here if you stop by for brunch.
