Great local place

This is a great small restaurant that also sells yummy cupcakes. This is a good restaurants for vegetarians and anyone else who likes tasty local food. It has a funky vibe and the furnishings are really cute.

I had a very tasty lunch with a friend at this restaurant in January. I can't remember what I ate but it was very good. The place is a bit pricier than I would prefer for lunch but it was walking distance from my friend's house and very convenient for me too. I didn't have any room for a cupcake... More

I love this cafe - I live in the neighborhood and eat here often. They have an excellent breakfast menu available until 3 pm each day. The lunch and dinner menus are also delicious. Be sure to save room for cupcakes, because they have many fabulous options each day. They also make great coffee and hot cocoa, and offer beer,... More

This place is our favorite restaurant for breakfast in Madison. Not only are they well know for their cupcakes, overall, their breakfast entrees are very good and are plentiful. You leave this place feeling very satisfied.

We stopped by for a quick cup cake fix after leave an area attraction. The pleasant thing about Daisy is that they always have a nice assortment of cup cakes available (even 5 minutes before they say they are stopping for the day.) We always enjoy a breakfast here if in the area. The staff is always welcoming and the... More

The food was very fresh and unique. They also have a wide variety of hot sauces, which was a big plus. The decor inside made the ambiance feel very welcoming. Overall, I would visit again if I am in the area.

I had lunch here with a friend. The noise made it difficult to talk. She enjoyed her pancake but my "New Mediterranean" sandwich (Edamame hummus, fried breaded eggplant, tomato, spring-mix lettuce and cucumber-yogurt sauce on whole-wheat pita) was disappointing. The quantity was surprisingly minimal. The pita was cut into 2 pieces. Each half held a thin slice of eggplant, one... More

I have to eat a gf diet. Decent choices here and the food has been good the few times I have been. I wouldn't waste the calories on the cupcakes. Flavor is just so so and the amount of frosting is too much for my taste.

A unique dining experience. The restaurant occupies the main floor of a house on Madison’s east side. It is very high quality home cooked food from scratch. The breakfast offerings are probably better than the lunch fare. They can accommodate large parties and it is quite kid friendly. It’s an eclectic décor but the food is very good. (The restrooms...

I only stopped here because I saw it as I drove by. Glad I stopped in. The place looks relaxing and inviting. I got two cupcakes to go. I had one and shared the other one so I can only say the one I had was fantastic. Raspberry with vanilla. If I ever get back to Maduson I would definitely... More
