Not to sound repetitive, but if you’ve been reading my posts for awhile you know one thing.  I don’t ever pass up a cupcake shop.  A restaurant that also serves cupcakes for dessert?  EVEN BETTER!

The Daisy Cafe and Cupcakery is located on the east side of Madison in a cute little neighborhood not far from Willy St.  I had eaten here for breakfast once and it was wonderful, but I had never tried their cupcakes or dinner.  I had an online deal that was going to expire soon, so a few friends and I decided to take advantage and check it out for dinner.

The inside of the restaurant is adorable…very eclectic, warm, and friendly!  The restaurant wasn’t very full, so I think they do most of their business during the breakfast and weekend time, but their menus looked AWESOME.  Their dinner menu consisted of a good variety—pastas, fish, and their “signature” meatloaves. 

Now, growing up, I hated meatloaf. With a passion.  But these meatloaves on the menu weren’t your run of the mill dishes…there was a reuben meatloaf, turkey and pesto meatloaf, and the chicken, leek, and gorgonzola meatloaf (I got this!).  They sounded tasty and more than just a hunk of meat, so we all decided to try them! 

I got the chicken, gorgonzola, and leek meatloaf, pictured below. It was awesome!  It also had some sun-dried tomatoes in it for a little kick.  It was very moist and incredibly tasty.  It also came with mashed potatoes (you can’t ever go wrong with those babies) and beautiful grilled veggies!  I didn’t get pictures of any of the other dishes because they all looked the same, but the verdict all around the table was a thumbs-up. icon smile Daisy Cafe & Cupcakery  Restaurant Review

We then, of course, had to get cupcakes.  I got the mocha chocolate (in front), and my friends each got a blueberry-lemon and a pay-day (peanut flavored).  The cakes were all moist (which is impressive for being in the case all day) and moist.  The frosting was good, but I wished it was thicker in consistency (this could be a personal preference?)

All in all, we loved it.  The meatloaves were a steal as being one of the cheapest items on the dinner menu and the cupcake was a great touch to the end of dinner!  Would definitely recommend for dinner as well as breakfast!
