The breakfast pancakes were tasty. All natural syrup was available plentiful. Three strips of bacon came on the side. The special cinnamon buns looked heavenly. A very comfortable atmosphere for Father's day!

Stopped by during a road trip...was not disappointed. Food prices vary but the food is really good. Great customer service and vegetarian options.

Food Dance consistently serves up quality food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The traditional eggs, potatoes,bacon and wheat toast is tasty. The service is on-point. I would definitely recommend this establishment.
