Excellent for breakfast and lunch. Interesting people watching with primo scrambles and egg dishes with interesting names,amazing pancakes and French toast. Local artist's display and often local musicians play here.

Day By Day Cafe in Saint Paul, MN serves breakfast all day. We enjoy going there for brunch all year round, but particularly enjoy it in the warmer weather when we can sit on the patio, which is on the back side of the building surrounded by buildings and fence (no street noise or exhaust). There are trees, small ponds... More

In St Paul, there are many choices for a good breakfast. Day by Day serves more than breakfast, but I've always visited in the morning. There is tons of seating, so unless you arrive at peak hours on the weekend, you'll be able to walk right in. The breakfast menu is huge and there are usually additional specials written on... More

I've been here 3 times and the food has been yummy however I doubt we'll ever return. The service is slow and the servers were rude and not attentive. We had to flag down our server repeatedly for simple things like water and coffee refills. It is also incredibly loud due to how the staff throws the dirty dishes in... More

My son, who lives in St. Paul, is a regular at the Day By Day Cafe. During our recent visit, he took my husband and I here for breakfast (twice). Both times we had servers who were efficient, extremely friendly, and welcoming. The food was outstanding. I recommend having two eggs, fresh fruit, a ham slice, and the home style... More

We have been going to Day by Day cafe for breakfast for years on Sunday morning - mostly because my father-in-law likes to meet there! Well, we finally convinced him to find a new place after tolerating the VERY unfriendly wait staff! I could never understand why the place seems to have so many people wanting to eat there...the food... More

I have been going to the Day by Day for lunch for years. On my last visit, the service was slow and the server was rude. I am disappointed to cross Day by Day off my list.

I met a friend for breakfast here a couple weeks ago. First time I had been here. It was a very good breakfast. The eggs and sausage were tasty, service was good, and prices were reasonable.

We have been here a number of times. A solid breakfast place. Pancakes are large and tasty. Actually breakfast is available all day. We also like to support their mission.

My wife and I really like this place, like the theme and the food. Not a fancy place, but very comfy, and the food is always consistent. Friendly staff, just a great place for morning coffee and breakfast. The patio is very nice on a pleasant day.
