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.

I checked the reviews in a hurry while looking for a local place to eat and walked in on a Saturday night @ 6pm without a reservation, expecting to be told there was no availability. I was so pleased they squeezed us in, they mentioned that they had a reservation but that if 1 hour was enough for us they... More

We were staying at the Cary House, so this cafe was a natural for a lunch stop. It was packed at noon on a Monday, which gave us an idea of its popularity. The menu offered a good selection of salads, wraps and panini. The panini/salad combination was a very good value. I had the chicken sandwich with mango chutney... More
