The food at GLK, like the Lake Merritt scenery, is fantastic' -- it's a brunch staple thanks to the savory French toast and the life-saving chilaquiles. It’s a bit cramped on the inside (as well as the front patio), so the sidewalk wait always looks like a mid-morning street party is taking place... which is admittedly half the fun. The tastiness continues at dinner with roasted pork belly sandwiches (with pickled fennel and chimichurri) and avocado-topped Dungeness crab toast.
