Pricey

This was a bit pricey for lunch but excellent food. This restaurant is owed by the same owner of one of my other favorite restaurants in Placerville: The Independent Restaurant and Bar. Worth the time and money.

comfortable, good service, good gorgeous food. We were served in a timely manner, and the server was knowledgeable and lots of fun. We were allowed to savor and we enjoyed that. The gelato with espresso was so good.

Delicious food and fun atmosphere if a bit tight. It is a small place so sometimes the wait is long but it is very worth it. Wonderful wine selection and great food

Placerville Main Street has buildings dating back to 1850's. The Heyday has uncovered its brick wall to expose its early building materials and give charming ambiance to the interior. The menu has delightful upscale pizza, salads, sandwiches and entrees, and an elegant array of wines. It tends to be noisy when crowded (especially lunchtime) which goes to show how popular... More

Wish I had read the some of the other reviews prior to eating here today. The salads and sandwiches looked good coming out and going to the other tables. When our pizza arrived it was dry and chewy. Why would an otherwise well planned restaurant serve a disappointing experience like a chewy and dry pizza with the wrong kind of... More

The Heyday is one of the best restaurants in Placerville. Great wine list paired with great food and great staff. The only down side is what also makes it enjoyable and that is the size. Very small so limited seating.

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
