I went to lunch with a friend from out of town that had read some very good reviews on this place and wanted to try it. I stepped in around 12:30 and put in my name for two, told that it would be around 20 min which it was almost to the minute! We got a choice of two tables... More

Always great food and a wonderful selection of wines, both local and farther away. Can't go wrong with Heyday when you are visiting Main Street.

Touristy towns often feature restaurants that are over-priced, over-hyped, and ultimately disappointing. Happily, this is not the case with the Heyday Cafe. Service was excellent and our waiter was friendly and helpful. The menu offered many options that were intriguing without being overly trendy and the variety of entrees made it easy to find something appealing. We had two panini... More

This place has wonderful food and service. I took my out of town friends here and it did not disappoint. We all had the Garlic BLT with avocado and the lobster bisque. Both were amazing and everyone enjoyed their good. The service is friendly and attentive. It is a small place and very busy.

Since the Eden Vale Inn doesn't serve dinner, we drove into Placerville and had dinner at the Heyday Cafe. It was delicious- their margarita pizza was made in a wood burning oven and the salad very good. They quite the wine list!

This past week was my second time eating at Heyday Café while passing through. I love this place. Small space with a big city feel in it's menu. I'm not really a pizza fan but their pizza is a must-try. The first time we had the Truffle Chicken and this time I had the daily special which had prosciutto, olives,... More

Second time we do the wine country once a year. Both lunches were delicious but it is hard to find good food in Placerville . This place does not disappoint good pizza; salads and sandwiches

We have been there twice. First time was outstanding; there were 4 of us and we got 3 different entrees, all of which were excellent. A few weeks later we took some other friends we wanted to impress, and we were very disappointed. The restaurant is small and so is the kitchen, so I think they have a problem when... More

This is a great little restaurant in Placerville. We had to wait 40 minutes for the table but we amused ourselves by walking around the quirky Placerville. The wait was worth it. The four of us were seated at a long table so we shared it with another family. The restaurant is obviously very popular with tourists and locals alike.... More
