“Lovely dinner out this evening”
Reviewed October 28, 2010

We just returned from a lovely dinner at Heyday Cafe. We are locals, but don't make it up to Placerville that often. It was worth the trip. The food is excellent, with lots of nice options to choose from. Extensive wine list with nice local selections. Service is consistent and well executed. Nice ambience with a small town feel. We highly recommend.

“One of the top 4 in placerville”
Reviewed July 22, 2010

Small place with great energy and always good food. Some entrees are better than others. Try the special salads - always great. Often hard to get a table, so call ahead. I would rate Heyday one of the top 4 in Placerville, along with Sequoia, Luna, and Jacques.

“Cos D'Estournal with a hamburger in a street cafe -- It's here!”
Reviewed June 2, 2010

Just like a corner lunch shop with an unusually varied menu, fresh excellent food, a choice of over 150 wines from $20 to $370, and wonderful service. It's not fancy, but clean and a local small gatheing place with favorites in Placerville or anyone taking a break on the way to Lake Tahoe. Soups, pizzas, salads, meats and sandwhiches all made the guests very happy.

“One of the best restaurants in Placerville”
Reviewed August 13, 2009

Great food - from the Pizza to the various other dishes they prepare. I've eaten here several times - and it's always good and the menu has changed slightly each time. The wine list is great and they have a decent beer selection as well. If you are in downtown Placerville this is one of the few choices you have for a real meal.
