I always eat here when I am in Dali. The breakfast is an excellent deal, and the burgers are great also. Also the place I go for when I want to meet with someone.

Their breakfast just rocks, we came here twice in our 3 days in Dali. Reasonable price and their homemade sausage is delicious.

This is my favorite place to eat in Dali. Everything is delicious, even if all you want is a little oatmeal cookie. Also, they are usually playing jazz music, the atmosphere is quite pleasant.

Solid burgers and pie. Breakfast looks respectable as well. Friendly, attentive service with plenty of outdoor seating. Worth a try if you're hankering for western food.
