Heyday Cafe was a small restaurant serving delicious food, with an extensive wine list. Our server was super knowledgeable of the area and gave us a brief history of Placerville.

We visited Placerville with kids - on a road trip from the Bay Area and found this gem on Trip Advisor. Agree with many of the comments. Food was well prepared, they offered a nice selection of local wine by the glass and service was excellent.

I have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed, this is a must try. Quaint and looks difficult to get seated but never had a problem.
