~~<p>With a name like Goofy Cafe, one has to wonder what mischief the chef is up to. The reaction to the name is likely to range from glee (top of mind for people I quizzed was the Disney character) to bafflement. A lot of us take our food seriously, and &quot;goofy&quot; is not a word we tend to associate with food.</p>
<p>It makes more sense once you learn the reference comes from the surf/skate/board sport world, in which the larger population of regular surfers/skaters lead with their left foot and the goofy-footed lead with their right.</p>
