The food was very good. Huge selection of gluten free items. More than just cupcakes, although the cupcakes were very yummy. The wait staff were very friendly.

Sometimes when you go to lunch at a cafe you don't get the care in preparation that you get at dinner. Not so for our lunch at the Daisy Cafe. Everything was cooked perfectly and presented well on the plate. My turkey, avocado sandwich had crisp bacon and just exactly the right amount of "grill" on the bread. My son... More

Great place for vegan, gluten free, and other dishes. Clever combinations of foods and you can also get breakfast for lunch on weekdays. Sausage sloppy joe was very flavorful, although the bun was too big. Came with choices of sides - I chose the veggie slaw that was very good.

Wow! Enjoyed dinner here. Hubby had the Friday night fish fry and I had the roasted veggie enchiladas with added chicken. Fish was pan fried, not deep fried, in panko bread crumbs, he said the fish was excellent. The enchiladas were so good, and filling, probably would have been full without the added chicken. The food was amazing and the... More

I'm probably being nice saying average. Not impressed with the cupcake quality and certainly didn't like the price. Also had a so-so dinner here and won't repeat that experience. And the toilets!!! Wow - - my wife says she will never return here.

I originally came here to try one of their wonderful cupcakes, but have really loved the variety of breakfast, lunch Their breakfasts, including the sandwiches are hearty and presented beautifully; the lunch sandwiches, salads and soups are tasty and I've loved every dinner I've had, especially their salmon and several of their very original meatloaf.

Went there with friends for brunch. It was wonderful! The service was friendly and checked back regularly even though they were very busy! I would definitely go back again!

We were on our way to the botanical gardens in need of good coffee and took a chance on the Daisy. We were lured back for lunch by the cupcake display and eclectic décor of the café. It was busy when we returned, and the noise level was high - Sunday brunch fans, several with children (Why do parents allow... More

I heard such great things about this place and wanted to give it a try. Not impressed. My omlete was ok, but it was barely even warm. The rest of the food was similar, cold and just ok. I was even more upset when I tasted the cupcakes I purchased, all 4 were dry and had to be throw out.

Thank Kimber S
