Description: For 20 years, Food Dance has been committed to building a thriving and sustainable local food system. We support artisans who practice craft food processes that have been around for generations-growing, raising, preserving, curing, aging, pickling, butchering and more. For Food Dance, it's about the connection with the people and places their food comes from-authentic people and authentic food that's true to its source. Serving breakfast, lunch or dinner-guests are served the freshest menu items in a casual and welcoming atmosphere. We offer private dining space for celebrations or larger groups as well as catering and delivery. We host cooking classes and special dinners throughout the year - aimed to introduce guests to new elements of the culinary and agricultural worlds. Our on-site market offers amazing ingredients sourced from their family of purveyors-from sustainable, humanely raised meats, sausages and artisan cheeses to fresh baked bread, pastries and savory baked goods.

It seems Food Dance is always open! They have a great menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Unique options, always good. Great service too. There's also a shop where you can buy cheeses, delicious desserts and take out. Highly recommended!

“Superb Dining Experience”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

What are the odds of 5 people with distinctive tastes all having a wonderful dining experience?! The New York Strip Steak with duck fat potatoes was out of this world. The French feta appetizer was delicious. The macaroni and cheese, to die for! My daughter thoroughly enjoyed her salmon, my husband had a fantastic pulled pork sandwich, my sister devoured the crab ravioli. What makes this place even more enjoyable is the friendly staff. They are happy to be your hostess or server, they clearly love where they work, which tells me they are treated well by their employers.

“Always wonderful!”
Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

Food Dance is one of my 'go to' favorites in Kalamazoo.

The restaurant uses local and organic sources, as possible. There are vegetarian options available.

I tend to order a seasonal dish whenever possible, but the mac & cheese is ALWAYS great. This visit I enjoyed the Moroccan Squash (veg entree) and it was a delight!

Full bar service is available and there is also a gift shop/gourmet shop.

“Not waistline friendly but DELICIOUS!”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

We stopped by Food Dance on Sept 23rd. We did not eat in the resturant be we did stop at their bakery and purchased sweets. The peanut butter bars did not make it out of the parking lot. YUM!! I did try a sample of their applewood smoked cheddar which was wonderful by at $20.95 per pound it exceeded my pricing pain level. They had a very good variety of sweets and breads. Worth the stop.
