I love the atmosphere of this place. It's bright and fun and interesting! The sandwiches have really interesting combinations... I had some type of dancer sandwich which included avocado (of course) and sprouts and a wonderful hearty bread. Wait staff very pleasant and helpful. I needed to charge my phone while there and my waiter even brought me a little paper container to put it in so it wouldn't get soiled from the plant/floor.

Dear BeBe Mama,

Of the six Dancer sandwiches we currently serve, you chose the classic Dancer which has a California flavor. We start with ripe 'mostly' Hass Avocados, three slices of ripe tomatoes, a diced purple onion?, and our homegrown lentil sprouts. They land two pieces of multi grain bread toasted with melted cheddar, Monterrey jack cheese & a third cheese selected daily. The bread a special recipe made by an underground artisan baker, Harry has a small commercial bakery hidden in the city. He bakes and delivers our bread each day. When we run out, we may have to switch to something else, but we have yet to find a bread so simple and yet so complex at the same time.

Very cute little place, great for lunch that sits right on beach street. I had an avocado wrap and it was really good. Food is priced between 6-10 so it's affordable but I'd say if you really want to eat healthy, this is a good spot for you

Thank Heather P

Dear Heather,

Thanks for telling all the vegans in the whole wide world to come visit us, we are not a 100% vegan eatery, as you know; we sell a really good beef burger. We just want to give people healthier and happier options. So not everybody that stops by actually gets what we're trying to do. We never mean to offend; we really appreciate your review, and appreciate sending all your nutty friends our way.

This is a charming little place with friendly workers. I loved the healthy food and fun atmosphere.Do not expect a quick lunch, it is popular and busy. Will definitely stop there when in Daytona to work my way through the menu, and shop on Beach St.

Dear Krissy from Okeechobee,

Number one, thank you so much for all the high Fives!!!! Coming from south Florida, we know that you live on the edge of a big lake and there are hundreds of restaurants to choose from while visiting Daytona Beach, FL. We really appreciate you landing at the Dancing Avocado Kitchen to refuel. Krissy, saying the food is good, we really like; but the fact that you said the smiles are real, made the chefs day! Peace, Love & Okeechobee!

I loved coming here the atmosphere was fun and friendly. The menu had healthy food that was really good and different. If you like trying new things this is a great place to eat. I had the topless dancer pizza and it was great I love their unique selection. They have fresh vegetarian food and food for the meat lover. We also tried some of their dessert the rotten turtle egg breakfast and it was amazing! You have to try it!

Dear Bekah girl (we saw you were from GA)

We are still working on some of the execution details for the Rotten Turtle Egg Breakfast (RTEB), so it's not available all the time; but we're so excited you got to try it. The chef from time to time dabbles in creative molecular foods, but he said to let you know that the RTEB is really more slight of hand. The Topless Dancer as you might expect, is always either loved or hated, but always for the right reasons. Thanks for the high fives!!!

While visiting my mom, she took us to this great restaurant for lunch. Everyone loved it, and we have vegetarians and non-vegetarians in the family, as well as three generations at the table. The sandwiches and salads were all delicious! Also our waitress, Ashley, was very attentive.
