Tasty Food, Relaxed Atmosphere

For years, I used to drive by the restaurant, only giving a brief thought to maybe eating there one day. One day, I decided I wanted to try a venue new to me, and I decided on the Daisy Cafe and Cupcakery. I’m sure glad I did!

My first visit here to eat a couple years ago was for a golf league breakfast meeting in a back room. I was impressed & and the food was good. But now that I've been back & have eaten here a dozen more times I think the food is great ! The yummy seasoned breakfast potatoes are worth the trip... More

Husband & I went here on a Sunday morning (expecting a little bit of a wait). Had to park a block away because the parking lot is quite small. When we entered, we were seated immediately. Almost right away, someone came by with glasses of water & told us our server would be right with us. Didn't have to wait... More

My cousin recommended the cod sandwich with avocado. Side of edamame salad. Wonderful experience! Tasty. The owner makes amazing mosaics which are inside and outside the cafe. We were so satisfied with our lunch that we, perhaps foolishly, skipped dessert.

Found this place when hubby and I were looking for a good place to eat breakfast that was not an icky chain. Was a little worried it might be more of a bakery than a restaurant, but boy was I wrong! Huge menu with tons of unique options, many of which were vegetarian. My only regret was that we were... More

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

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
