I love their eggs benedict , pancakes and french toast is amazing. Their lunch items are also very good. I've had many things on the menu over the years and I have never had a bad meal.

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.

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.
