Soft opening for Good Eats

Good Eats — a cafe, wine bar and market by Raley’s heir Michael Teel and partners — held its soft opening Monday.

The gourmet takeout kitchen was a bit overwhelmed, serving 180 customers on the first day. Management asked prospective customers to be patient while any kinks are worked out at the market cafe, 3145 Folsom Blvd., throughout the rest of the week, said a manager.

The official opening will be held in September. Hours are expected to be 6 a.m. – 8 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 6 a.m. – 9 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, 7 a.m. – 9 p.m. Saturdays and 7 a.m. – 8 p.m. Sundays, said Julie Rollofson, Good Eats chief executive officer and Teel’s wife.

The first Good Eats specialty grocery opened in Arizona but shut down in March.

“Management asked prospective customers to be patient.”

ha ha ha ha ha. This thing has taken so long to open I think every prospective customer has long since given up on waiting and come to expect nothing.

They surely have a few kinks to work out. Went there day 1 and day 2 of soft open. Patience is a must.
I do like the place. Grocer area with cold and hot deli. Pre-made sandwiches, salads, dressing, and baked bread. Coffee and pastry shop. And a sit-down restraunt with a soon-to-be full bar. I like the place, just hope they get it together and learn the system.
