We love this place. Great beer, nice wine selection, and gourmet Pizza, also some really nice apetizers and a few select dinner menu items. We have never had a pad experience here and have been at least 10 times or more over the past couple of years. Chris is an awesome manager and makes you feel right at home, Ben... More

Whenever I visit a friend in Placerville, we inevitably end up eating lunch at Heyday Café. On my last visit, I had a cup of bisque, a Caesar salad, and a glass of bubbly—all very good. I would like to see appetizers on the menu, but what they do offer is fresh and well made.

Very busy casual place with excellent food (we especially enjoyed the pizzas) and outstanding service.

We have eaten here at least 5 times, and have never had a meal we didn't enjoy. Eaten mostly at lunch time, tho made it for brunch once. The wait staff is friendly and helpful, without being intrusive. The tall tables aren't as comfortable to sit at as the normal ones, but they are ok if the room is limited... More

After several visits to Heyday Cafe, I have to say that it is highly over rated.Although they try to be a gourmet, trendy establishment, their food is lack luster. The quality does not match the written discription on the menu.The wine selection is usually good though.

We dined here on Sunday for the fourth time, I believe. The food is always good, although a little pricey for the area, the portions are well-sized. We have had a couple dishes that weren't executed as well as they could have been, but always tasty. Sometimes things sound like a good idea, but just don't work (like bleu cheese... More

This is a really small cramped space so your chair is continually bumped by people squeezing by, but the food is outstanding. Service is ok but not superb. We enjoy coming in for a quick lunch and always enjoy our selections.

While in town we decided to grab dinner at this place. It was pretty much right across from our hotel (Historic Cary House Hotel) and was very convenient to walk to. When we first walked in the place was packed. The host/server said it would be about an hour so we put our name on the list and came back... More

Whether you are a local or just want to feel like one, Heyday is the place to go. Wonderful selection of local wine, great vibe and superb menu. Must try the Roasted Butternut Salad -Roasted Butternut Squash on spinach greens with bacon crumbles, red onions, toasted almonds, goat cheese and brown sugar cider vinaigrette dressing.
