Nice atmosphere, great breakfast

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.

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

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

I like this little relaxing spot. Their lattes are large and well prepared. I appreciate that they are served in a tall clear glass with a small paper jacket to keep your hand safe. Different. Staff is consistently friendly. Sometimes I'm confused - should I seat myself or wait for someone? My 2 food experiences here were excellent! Meat free... More
