Nice small place for lunch

The cafe is small, but the aesthetic is nice with brick walls and tastefully decorated. I had a good spinach salad with a good dressing. Service was excellent

You wouldn't know by the name, but this was a wonderful place for dinner. The salmon was perfectly cooked and the wine list was reasonable. Especially enjoyed the sparkling wine flight, only $13.50, for 2 full glasses of sparkling wines from different areas. The server was friendly and answered our questions with a smile.

We stopped in for a late lunch. We ordered a BLT sandwich and the house-made sausage pizza. The sausage was fantastic - fenel with a little spice. Very nice location and staff was attentive.

We asked different local people for best lunch place in Placerville. All said Heyday Café. They were correct. We had the spinach salad with roasted butternut squash. Very unusual and excellent. We also shared a bacon, lettuce, tomato and avocado Panini that was wonderful. Great service and prices.

Great range of delicious, fresh salads; pizza is pretty good, too. Wait staff and kitchen always accommodate substitutions. Service is attentive, vast. Good value for money. Excellent wine list, including many local selections.

This restaurant is very popular with the locals and is often full with waiting times of about 15 to 20 minutes. Inside is very comfortable and nice. The service is prompt and friendly. The food is well prepared and always good. They have a nice wine list. It is a place worth trying.

Excellent food and service, however, it is expensive. Great for a special occasion. Try their deserts, they are something special.

The salmon sandwich and any of the pizzas are delicious. Inexpensive Prosecco is a bonus! It can get a bit too crowded, but I guess that tells you how popular it is.

Friendly staff & the best veggie lasagne I have ever had. This is not your grandpa's cafe, but the best in fresh, innovative cuisine.
