Food Dance is one of my all-time favorites. The menu is fresh and interesting and the food is always delicious. The restaurant has a modern while fun decor. There is also a very nice small shop associated with the restaurant.

The food I ate here was very good! I started with a salad and that tasted amazing! The tomato soup was nice too! If you have the kids menu I would recommend Chicken tenders or the flatbread! Go and try it, I recommend it!😄

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.
