Went for dinner, which might not be this places' strong suit. Heard rave reviews about this cafe, but found it very disappointing. The food was fine, but nothing to write home about. We had unexplained very, very slow service without an explanation. It took so long to place our order I almost left, and then it took forever to get... More

We had lunch here and were pleasantly surprised at the tastiness and quality of the food. We had soups and sandwiches and all were excellent. We especially liked a side salad with edamames. We brought it home to see if we can dissect it to find the ingredients. Even the coleslaw was delicious. We noticed several patrons having breakfast dishes... More

Went during Madison restaurant week. Was glad it was a pre-fixe price of $25 & I did not have to pay full price. For app I got the 5 onion / artichoke bruschetta. That was really good. For entree I got the steak with reduced wine. I think it was an end piece I got and I really have no... More

You know when you walk in the door that you're in a university district. The decor is artsy, offbeat, and charming, from the folk singer manikin to the O'Keeffe-inspired painting, to the stained glass panels and the wine bottles. Our party of four had all different and all excellent breakfasts, served by an ebullient waiter. The menu went beyond standard... More

BEWARE!!! Take it from a customer with a child who has biopsy-confirmed celiac disease -- the cupcakes displayed as "gluten-free" are NOT GLUTEN-FREE. A post-vomit phone message with a reasonable request to speak to a manager about this was ignored.

I just love this restaurant because no matter the time of day it just works for my mood. Great place to stop for coffee, breakfasts offer whatever your heart desires. Lunches are great ( I suggest you share as servings are ample.) Dinner is just lovely with fish, steak, chicken and my favorite comfort food....meat loaf! You will be greeted... More

We went Sunday am after church. I recommend reservations after 11:30. Also recommend purchase the "to-go" cupcakes you want when you arrive as you'll want to linger at the place and the lust-worth cakey treats go fast. Our party purchased two to-go and then accidently tipped over the box while hugging good-bye...and they were replaced free of charge. Hubby had... More

The owners are always there to greet you with a smile. The coffee is hot, and the service is great. And the food is the best in Madison! Don't miss this place.

Had breakfast at the Daisy Cafe and it was fabulous. I had their famous egg sandwich and potatoes. The bacon (which was lots) on the sandwich was not greasy at all and had a great flavor. I love the fact that they do not deep fry the new potatoes. There was also a lot of vegetarian food on the menu.... More
