One of my favorite restaurants. I enjoy their pizzas, salads and wonderful selection of local wines (also good beer selection.)The service is excellent and the ambience, cozy.

“Best Ever Cafe”
Reviewed August 30, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I stopped through Placerville on our way to South Lake Tahoe.
Walking through the old town we noticed Heyday Cafe and went in to discover a great environment and a wonderful, full menu for a Cafe. My wife had a Caprese salad which she said stands as the best she's ever had in her life, and she has had many.
My sandwich was amazing as well, and a great selection of wines from all over, but some very good ones from local vintners that we enjoyed tasting.
Don't miss this place folks!!!

“Had a terrific lunch”
Reviewed August 27, 2014

Had gazpacho soup,turkey wrap and caesars salad. Second time eating here and enjoyed the food immensely. This place gets crowded and worth the wait. Reservations recommended.

“Gold Country Gem”
Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

Called for a Saturday night reservation and on arrival was pleasantly greeted and a table for 4 was waiting. We were taken care of by the pleasant and efficient staff. Enjoyed the artichoke heart/feta dip as an appetizer. Pork tenderloin with grilled polenta was excellent. Vegetable lasagna was good. Steak "Memphis" was good although paled in comparison to the pork. Extensive wine by the glass offerings and excellent desserts. Really pleased by the service and quality and will definitely return.

“Delicious”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

We travelled to Placerville with our dog so we couldn't eat at the Heyday Cafe, but we got some food to go and took it back to our B&B. The salads were excellent and the heirloom gazpacho soup--delicious.
