After handing off the baton two years ago, Alison Dance reopened the doors of Cyprus Cafe in the summer of 2020, as a new business -- Dandelion Cafe. Alison has brought back her locally-loved Mediterranean menu to our town. Alison has the same focus on the local community, using local foods and ingredients from our local farms, and ranchers, and serving you with our local beverages.
Dandelion Café offers both, indoor and the unique outdoor dining experience you’ve grown to love at this location.
Alison hopes to bring the same charm to Dandelion Cafe as she did to Cyprus with live, nightly music and a lovely outdoor gathering place for the community.
