I can't wait to go back! I want to try everything on the menu! The salad I had was incredible. I know people think, "ugh a salad." This one was seriously good. The teriyaki chicken with strawberries was a surprising combination, but very very good. When I go back, I'm after those cookie pancakes

The food here is fantastic. Pancakes are large, giant cinnamon rolls and all kinds of fresh baked pastries. We were passing through and stopped in Denica's on a suggestion and it was great. It can get crowded which shows the quality here.

We arrived shortly after noon and ordered, food arrived promptly. I had crepes with fruit, very good and satisfying, something that I would not have gone to the trouble to prepare and happy that Denica's was able to do so. My companions had eggs benedict and both had more than they could eat, so they each took home enough for... More

Danica's was good, but not spectacular. It is similar in nature to Zachs, down the street, or The Original Pantry, in LA. long lines usually indicate great food, and worth the wait. Danica's has great pastries, and great hot breakfasts, but they are not the only game in town. It is crowded inside, and parking can be a challenge. You... More

We looked at Denica's on a few social websites and all of the reviews were the same. We were thinking, no way can this place be that good and have a staff that goes out of it's way to accommodate their customers. Well everything you read is true. We were lucky enough to get a table for 5 right as... More

One of the best breakfast/lunch spots we have tried in and near Dublin, CA. Went with the grand kiddies and everyone, except the youngest, was satisfied. I had the special eggs benedict (by some other name) and it was great. Love their chunky potatoes. Perfectly cooked and fast service, despite being so crowded (must be a popular place). Their french... More

We ordered sandwiches and ate them in the restuarant. The food was good, but the ambiance needs some work. The tables could be kept a little cleaner and the unisex bathroom was in need of service.

We met a friend and her two young children for a quick lunch at Denica's. This was our first trip. Taking a 16 month old anywhere can be a challenge, but Denica's is a good spot for moms with young children who seek the normalcy of a lunch with friends. There is a play area fully stocked with plastic toys.... More
