Chow has an innovative menu utilizing local organic products. You can eat a meal or just stop in for dessert and coffee in the later evening hours. The atmosphere both inside and out is comfortable and inviting. Servers are attentive and happy to offer suggestions.

Have been and tend to go ocassionally to see if the menu has changed. The food is fresh and ok, but not spectacular. It has a very unusual menu. It does though have a beautiful long bar and serve a variety of craft beers.

We have been there for breakfast, even though there wasn't a large selection the food was good (pankakes and eggs). Sitting outside is nice in the shade of the trees.

If you are looking for indoor/outdoor seating and very casual, try Chows. Dog friendly and easy access. Food is good and a decent variety on their menu.

Great atmosphere for a great meal! A perfect Lamb Burger! One of the best Lamb Burgers I have had. The Grilled Halibut was excellent also. The staff was knowledgeable and pleasant. The Aioli sauce for the Artichoke made it worth the treat! Looking forward to...More

I love this place for several reasons. For one thing I love the food from sandwiches to the main coarse. I also love the ambience of the restaurant. Is very nice with a laid-back feel. I really enjoy sitting outside on their patio when possible....More

There were plenty of dogs on the patio when we were there on a Sunday for brunch. And no, I don't think they were service dogs.

At Chow, we only use organic produce. We are proud to use products from local vendors and to use those products to make everything in house. Our Danville location has a bakery kitchen that makes all the fresh produce and then sends it to each of our locations. If you love our jams, salad dressings or anything else, please note that our Lafayette location has a Farmers’ Market with these products. You can now add Chow’s Cooking to your Home Cooking! Enjoy!
