I love this place. When I'm in Kalamazoo I try to get to the Food Dance. I had the 1/2 roast beef sandwich with thin sliced rare roast beef. The dish included home made french fries. My meal hit the spot.

Food Dance creates an eclectic menu of dining choices prepared from the gardens and farms of local growers. Highly recommend having a breakfast, lunch, dunch (a late lunch/early dinner) or your evening meal at Food Dance. A great place to take visiting friends and family!

I thought the price was a bit high for what you got. The service was a bit slow. The dish that I had was a bit bland. It did have a fun atmosphere and a neat little shop.

Delightful interior, helpful servers and great food in this Kazoo institution. We hadn't been back in 10 years after enjoying Food Dance often while living here. Everything is not just the same, but amazingly better. My fave is the Bolero.

Description
For 20 years, Food Dance has been committed to building a thriving and sustainable local food system. 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.
