Don’t understand why this location’s service is so consistently bad from the one in Lafayette. We live and work locally and thought we would try it again. Quiet Sunday night. My husband and I were seated for fifteen minutes not even an acknowledgement! Watched as...More

Chow has an innovative menu utilizing local organic products. You can eat a meal or just stop in for dessert and coffee in the later evening hours. The atmosphere both inside and out is comfortable and inviting. Servers are attentive and happy to offer suggestions.

Have been and tend to go ocassionally to see if the menu has changed. The food is fresh and ok, but not spectacular. It has a very unusual menu. It does though have a beautiful long bar and serve a variety of craft beers.

We have been there for breakfast, even though there wasn't a large selection the food was good (pankakes and eggs). Sitting outside is nice in the shade of the trees.

There were plenty of dogs on the patio when we were there on a Sunday for brunch. And no, I don't think they were service dogs.

At Chow, we only use organic produce. We are proud to use products from local vendors and to use those products to make everything in house. Our Danville location has a bakery kitchen that makes all the fresh produce and then sends it to each of our locations. If you love our jams, salad dressings or anything else, please note that our Lafayette location has a Farmers’ Market with these products. You can now add Chow’s Cooking to your Home Cooking! Enjoy!
