My friend and I have been having breakfast at the Day By Day Cafe for years. We have never been disappointed by the quality of the food and the service. The daily specials are great and I think the buckwheat pancakes are outstanding.

Love their food. I love they support people going through rehab. This is one of the places we visit most of the time after church. You gotta have a salmon eggs Benedict!

This seems to be a small unassuming restaurant till you enter and select one of three dining rooms, or outside in the summer. The food is just good traditional cooking in a atmosphere where you can have a conversation with you dining companions, or alone if that's your choice. The price is reasonable and the service is good. Skip the... More

Day by Day is a local institution. Get The Heart Stopper, or Pig's Eye Porridge with craisins and maple syrup if you value your heart.

this place is normally very busy on weekends and holidays... Very good breakfast and pretty fast service once you are in.

Finally made the stop at Day By Day for Sunday breakfast - so glad we did! The place is charming and cozy, but due to multiple rooms there is not a long wait to be seated. Breakfast menu has something for everyone and daily special provides good variety for repeat visits. Will definitely be back.

Excellent catfish sandwich. I had the veggies to go with it. The other worker had the cub with fries. The guy taking the order was super nice and cool. He accommodated the requests for both orders.

We recently had lunch at the Day By Day Cafe on a weekday. I ordered a vegetarian salad and my companion ordered a burger. The burger was very good, but the vegetarian salad was awful. The celery was brown on the edges - it must have been cut 1-2 days earlier. The edges of the lettuce were also brown. The... More
