Small place in Iowa City. I ordered Diet Pepsi, "just out". I ordered the steak salad, "just out". Changed the steak to salmon and dropped the price. Service was great. It was full but they seated at the fully stocked bar. Seemed fully staffed in spite of labor issues everywhere. My salad was great. My daughter goes here often and says its her favorite place. Even without the things I requested, it was a 5/5.
My wife and I love the pancakes and omelettes. 12/31/21: Dandy Lion is always good. We had lattes, and mine had turmeric and nutmeg. I had Eggs Benedict with salmon and my wife had pancakes again. The pancakes came with real maple syrup and butter. Mmm.
Great food. Great service. Quaint atmosphere. Limited seating. Waited about 15 minutes but they texted us when ready and well worth the wait. Get the cinnamon roll!
Dandy Lion is one of my favorites spots for both breakfast and lunch. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu - it’s all super flavorful and fresh! My breakfast go-to is the Lodger Special.
Great food, great service, and great atmosphere. It’s a unique, neat place. I’d definitely go again.
