The weather was lovely, so outdoor seating was nearly full, with three tables left. The former taboos of not saving a seat while the rest of your party is standing in line may have passed, since I snagged a patio table while the family was inside ordering (and received no judgmental looks/whispers). Food took maybe a half-hour to arrive; the worst torture was watching and inhaling all the other orders that passed by in the meantime. A very laid-back, calm atmosphere otherwise! Lots of dogs sunning themselves on the patio.<br> + <br> + Adam's Special (3 eggs, bell peppers, serranos, jack cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, and pesto) was filling enough for my sister and I to split. The side potatoes are divine -- brushed with the butt dandruff of Zeus himself and basted in the boob sweat of Hera, probably. Good, solid meal well worth the ~$8. Will definitely be back to try the jerk chicken! --["Users/JaniceW"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Delta of Venushttp://daviswiki.org/Delta_of_Venus2014-09-16 12:39:51nowheremanComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Delta of Venus<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 286: </td> <td> Line 286: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2014-09-16 12:39:51'' [[nbsp]] I have breakfast here two or three days a week because they make the best coffee, oatmeal, black beans and toast in town, and the prices are very reasonable. A large bowl of oatmeal is $4 and a casserole dish of beans only $2. I substitute cinnamon for sugar on the oatmeal. Once in a while, I opt for the House Special with eggs and toast but substitute black beans for potatoes to minimize carbohydrates. The food is very healthy with a menu that includes vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free dishes in addition to eggs, bagels, granola, fruit, chicken, salads, and other items. The atmosphere inside and outside is casual and comfortable. Outside is a large rack of papers, flyers and posters that you can read while enjoying your meal.<br> + --["Users/nowhereman"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Delta of Venushttp://daviswiki.org/Delta_of_Venus2014-01-02 12:06:17ScottMeehleibComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Delta of Venus<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 284: </td> <td> Line 284: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2014-01-02 11:06:17'' [[nbsp]] Since becoming a vegetarian, I find myself here a lot more often.

This place is amazing. Great food for (vegetarian, breakfast, Caribbean dinner, etc.), great people (my social life in Davis basically began here), Lee is a great human being, great music, and probably a lot of other great things I'm forgetting. Although there's a hippie scene there as others have mentioned, they also definitely cater to an international crowd, musical crowd, queer culture, families, and dogs.

I wish there were more places like this in our little college town.<br> + My one gripe was yesterday, I wanted to come for lunch and stay a bit longer to study after. I walked in and looked around, not a single open table, inside or out. I understand it can be busy, but this was mid afternoon, past lunch time, and the majority of people either had nothing and few had coffee. Times like this I like the signs on certain tables for customers only. I'm usually not one to complain, because I myself will go to places like this and study, but usually I order a drink or something, only common courtesy. I ended up heading to crepeville which had multiple tables open. Just disappointing, that I couldn't order lunch from them because there were no open tables and none looking to be opened in sight. --["Users/mperkel"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Delta of Venushttp://daviswiki.org/Delta_of_Venus2010-06-05 14:15:19TomGarbersonLearned more about health; violations were all very minor, no probs in 2 yrs. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Delta of Venus<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 30: </td> <td> Line 30: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- Patrons concerned with health should be aware that Delta has one of the worst [http://www.decadeonline.com/insp.phtml?agency=YOL&amp;violsortfield=TB_CORE_INSPECTION_VIOL.UPDATE_BY&amp;record_id=PR0021913 health inspection records] of any ["restaurant"] in ["Davis"].<br> - </span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Delta of Venushttp://daviswiki.org/Delta_of_Venus2010-05-08 14:47:22erindeaconComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Delta of Venus<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 231: </td> <td> Line 231: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2010-05-08 14:47:22'' [[nbsp]] I have been going to the Delta Venus for years and have always appreciated the food, atmosphere and service.

It "sounds" fair. This is the same practice at Crepeville. The problem, of course, is that it doesn't always work out that way. We've gone to Crepeville at times and ordered our food and looked around for a table and still hadn't found one by the time the food came out. We finally did find a table and it was outside and this was still cold and rainy season so we froze our butts off, not to mention the food was cold in about two minutes. If that's the policy at Delta, or any place, there should first be a sign recognizing it, and second some kind of discount returned should you find yourself without a table once the food arrives. Essentially, restaurants like that are making money above their capacity, but at a cost to their customers. That all being said, I love both Crepeville and Delta. The food is delicious, beverage choices excellent and service quite good (which is why I return). --["Users/condemned2bfree"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Delta of Venushttp://daviswiki.org/Delta_of_Venus2009-06-16 09:50:40BrianJKenyonWithout the insane rudeness of Carrie's comment to refer to, mine was aptless. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Delta of Venus<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 214: </td> <td> Line 214: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- "Obliviots" Perfect, you've got them down cold.

It was a fairly long line, and we wanted to guarantee ourselves a table so he snagged one and sat and waited until I was done ordering. There was a group of 3 older people in front of us talking so loudly about how it is so rude to grab a table before ordering food, how it is customary to get a table after ordering, and they talked about this for 5 minutes at least. The one guy said "or else a couple could just walk in behind you and grab a table even though they got there after you"- it was super awkward, especially because there were like 5 open tables that they could have grabbed, and they were still there after they ordered.<br> + <br> + But really, isn't it right to want to know if you can get a table before you order, to know if it is a "here or to-go" order?

I've worked in food service before and so I try not to be a difficult customer, but when I see a friend of a server stroll up and get his omelette while I haven't gotten mine half an hour after ordering (and it's not that crowded), I think that there is something wrong with the way management is communicating its priorities. It was especially frustrating because after waiting for about 25 minutes I told them that I would have to go soon and there just didn't seem to be any sense of urgency.

There was one hostess there who was completely hostile toward us for our entire visit. We met another family for an early breakfast (8:30) and sat together indoors. The hostess was rude to the point of rolling her eyes at us and told us to "never come back again" at the end of our meal. When I asked for a "to-go" cup, the hostess glared at me, ignored my "thank you" and then told me sharply to put my glass cup in the tray and not on the counter. We were completely appalled and still as I write this, I can't believe that this woman has been hired to be the face of Delta of Venus that customers interact with. When my husband asked her why she said to never return to Delta, she blew up about us not busing our table (which we did 100%) and not tipping. To this, we say that tipping is for service, for which we received zero. We ordered at the counter, we got our own silverware/napkins, we bused our own table...and we did it all with a really bitter hostess who made us feel totally unwelcome the entire time. We did send a formal complaint to the owner and explained the entire ordeal. While we don't want to penalize an otherwise great local restaurant by terminating our patronage there, it would be hard to return knowing that a paid employee thinks it's ok to treat people like that (and who is allowed to keep her job).

But calling it a no-class place I take issue with. While you have the right to say that, I would look at the phrase ''no-class''. In-N-Out is no class. Burger King is no class. Delta is a different kind of class than you are used to. And really, the food there is best when it is from the vegetarian menu. I'd suggest going on a Thursday night when a folk artist is playing. Everyone will be having a good time. Iwaca will be in the kitchen and if you give another dish a chance I'm sure you'll like it. -["RobRoy"]<br> - * I have to disagree with RobRoy. Smoking in an eating establishment is an obscenely obnoxious act. That's why it's illegal. I resent the idea that I should be shuffled off to some hot, stuffy, dark hole to eat, so that others patrons can pollute the air. Any eating establishment that has any respect for their customers would not allow it. Of course, the place would be out of business because it is a haven for obnoxiousness and caters to that particular quality.<br> - <br> - * Regarding Gustavo's comment. First, I must say that there are plenty of other establishments (the majority of) that do not allow smoking on an outside patio. Don't be greedy with the few places that allow smokers to feel at home. Second, Delta Venus is a hybrid of coffee shop and restaurant. Third, it seems to me that your perspective of Delta Venus is based on an entirely different set of expectations that the owners probably envisioned.<br> - <br> - Coffee shops of the Delta Venus's style were not places that took their inspiration from the larger culture of America. The culture surrounding the coffee shop is one where people of man different credos get to mingle and talk. It is a place where you can temporarily forget about the ideologies of the dominant culture. It is a place where you expect to meet people that are different, mysterious or alarming even. It is a place where street kids can express their opinions and where out-of-sync philosophers can let it all out. Class? We don't want the type of class you seem to be advocating; with all its sterility. With class even the refined aromas of delicate foods stink, because the common person must feel ashamed if they cannot appreciate it. Class? Fu.<br> - <br> - Coffee shops are the modern day town-hall or town square. (Other than the internet). A town-hall/town-square is a place where people can communicate with other people that they do not expressly know, and is also a place where they **expect** to run into this communication. Communication of ideas and information is vital to many things, but namely to Democracy. If coffee shops are to serve democracy as a medium for the exchange of ideas and information, then they must not be **Classist**.<br> - <br> - Delta Venus makes your food (really good food), brings out your food, and washes your plate and cup. Personally, I think that to want any more service than that then you are overindulging yourself. I am not saying anything about whether you were getting what you paid for, mind you. I&amp;#8217;m saying that to want more is to be overindulgent.<br> - <br> - As far as price well, they have to make a profit.-["JoshuaLee"]<br> - <br> - * Well, that's all fine and good.

Smoking in public is incredibly selfish and obnoxious - it's one of the most obnoxious things one can do at a restaurant/cafe. It's like running a car engine and piping the exhaust directly to your table, and to your neighbors' tables.

Maybe instead of getting pissed off about it, you should politely let the guy offending you know that it's illegal to smoke on the Delta patio. You could even play it off as if you're helping them out. I would rather be told by a seemingly well-meaning bystander that I might get in trouble than have the cops called any day. Seriously, don't you think that cops have more important things to do than ticket the guy offending you at a restaurant? --["SummerSong"]<br> - * I'm sure that most smokers bear no malice when they light up - it's usually fairly compulsive, since most smokers are addicted.

When faced with a threat to my health or the health of those in my care, I'm not going to take it lightly. That said, I've yet to call the cops on a smoker for smoking, and I may never do so.

Davis is full of cigarette Nazis. I understand that you don't like breathing smoke, but then, we smokers don't particularly enjoy being glared at as we walk down the street. At Delta all of the regulars smoke. To tell them to put it out, when they spend every paycheck here so that others, who come in maybe once every couple of months, can sit outside is what's obnoxious.

Please. --["Users/ElizabethJohnson"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2007-07-29 16:32:11'' [[nbsp]] Elizabeth, I feel like I'm wasting time by responding to you, but I enjoy debate, so what the heck.<br> - <br> - The Nazis caused the deaths of approximately 10 million people whom they deemed to be sufficiently different from them as to be considered subhuman. In stark contrast, people who dislike smoking are trying to maintain decent living standards and minimize their chances of getting cancer. Nobody has suggested that smokers be forced to wear identifying armbands, be taken to death camps, or be subjected to torture and sadistic medical experiments. So, how is it that you see fit to equate anti-smokers with Nazis?<br> - <br> - With regard to the Delta being a safe haven for smokers, I can't see how it makes smart business sense to alienate people with kids, people with dogs, and other nonsmokers just so you don't have to inconvenience the tobacco companies' zombies. But hey, if you're speaking for Delta and you're saying that the outdoors seating is for those who don't mind a little lung cancer, I don't need to come in two or three times a month anymore. (Hmm, doesn't that make me a regular?)<br> - <br> - In your us vs. the world comments, you seem to be implying three things: (1) that everyone fits neatly into a given stereotype, and (2) that "farmers" and "hippies" are all smokers, and (3) smokers are oppressed.<br> - <br> - Well, let's start with #1 - your implication that everyone fits neatly into whatever stereotype you want to paint them with. You'd probably label me a "yuppie", because I'm a technology consultant, I wear clothes that facilitate my visits to my clients' offices, I drive a fairly modern car, and I no longer live cheque-to-cheque. However, reality is not that simple, as I was raised by "hippies" in a modest setting. (Well, a bunch of modest settings - we moved on average once per year until I was in high school.) For example, when I was young, an improvement in our financial situation meant that we upgraded from living in a tent to a shack with no insulation, inconsistent running water, and a bucket for a toilet. From there, we upgraded to the place that had running water (except when it was running mud in the winter) and a flush toilet, but still no insulation and a violent drug fiend neighbor who held a loaded shotgun to his wife's head in front of their kids, one of whom was a friend of mine. Please forgive me for not relishing a return to that reality, and for not appreciating your ignorant assumptions about my background.<br> - <br> - #2 - your implication that all farmers and "hippies" are smokers. Oh, please. That's just plainly false.<br> - <br> - #3 - your implication that smokers are oppressed. Other addicts whose addiction-influenced behaviour is also disruptive would probably make similar arguments. Do you think that heroin junkies are oppressed because they can't freely shoot up in public? Or that drunks are oppressed because they're not allowed to drive while drunk? I don't think so, and I and many others equate such things with smoking in public.<br> - <br> - Addiction is a powerful and terrible thing, and I do honestly feel bad for you that you're suffering under the thumb of one of the most powerfully addictive substances around. However, just as I don't pity my alcoholic uncle when he receives negative attention for indulging in his addiction in public, I don't pity you (or any other smoker) for being subjected to glares and other signs of disapproval when you indulge in your addiction in public - especially since anyone within 20 feet of you is forced to share in your deadly habit whether or not they want to.<br> - <br> - --["Users/GrahamFreeman"]<br> - <br> - * Go Graham! I believe that the people who profit off of cigarettes are most likely the yuppies everyone despises. I don't like government telling me what to put in or not put in my body, but I also don't like individuals forcing me to put stuff in my body. I don't like cigarette smoke when I eat. But, I'm not going tell someone to stop smoking at the last place in California where one can...I understand that. I just won't eat there. The farmers that were here first? I'm thinking of the Gibson family who owned everything from Dixon to Knight's landing and paid for the scalps of Native Americans. Do you mean those farmers? Or maybe the farmers who ran this town during the first half of the 20th century and did not allow blacks to own property until the late 1960's. Maybe the one farmer who burned a cross on the first black professors lawn? Those hippies that were here first? Guess what? They passed those smoking bans! But they also built Village Homes. Go figure. Please stop romanticizing the history and people of Davis. Davis is what it is today, the good and the bad, because of the farmers and the hippies - ["JamesSchwab"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2007-08-04 16:52:52'' [[nbsp]] I'm not a smoker but I am happy that other people are allowed to smoke on the patio at Delta of Venus. I enjoy the social atmosphere created in cigarette smoking zones. Everyone is just hanging out and being friendly while taking a break from whatever is they normally do. Its a comfortable environment which I have enjoyed my whole life, despite the fact that I have never personally enjoyed smoking cigarettes.<br> - <br> - Also, I really don't think its realistic to say that you are going to get cancer because you sit 20 feet away from a smoker for 20 minutes while you eat lunch once a week. There is lots of seating in the outside area of delta that is far away from the smoking section. Can't everyone coexist? --["Users/SolomonBothwell"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2007-08-05 14:52:28'' [[nbsp]] Solomon, I admit to having been melodramatic for the sake of illustrating my point when I referred to people who "don't mind a little lung cancer." Obviously nobody's going to get cancer from a singlehand secondhand exposure to a low-intensity carcinogen. However, it's indisputable that exposure to secondhand cigarette smoke '''increases the risk''' of cancer, and the fact that other people feel entitled to impose upon me that increased risk is what gets my goat.<br> - <br> - As far as socializing is concerned, you're saying that you're OK with this increased risk of cancer as the cost of participating in that particular social scene. I've never had any trouble finding great people to socialize with in the complete absence of cigarettes, but that's your choice, and I respect that. Don't impose your choice on me in public spaces. If I come to your house, and your other guests are smoking, obviously I have to put up with it or leave. That's not true at a business (such as Delta) that offers services to the public in the city of Davis. In such a setting, the citizens have agreed upon a law that requires smokers to stay at least 20 feet away from doors and windows.<br> - --["Users/Graham.Freeman"]<br> - * I agree with Graham that the law is the law and laws are passed and enforced for reasons. That said, I believe that it is a business's prerogative as to what extent it abides by these laws, much the same as it is a citizen's prerogative as to what extent he/she abides by the legal speed limit. Just as second hand smoke ''increases'' the risk of cancer, excessive speeding ''increases'' the risk of car accidents. If a place like Delta wants to be lenient on smoking, that is ownerships' decision, and they can deal with the consequences if the police or health department ever choose to enforce these laws. (Much the same as police "choose" to enforce speeding laws.)<br> - <br> - [[nbsp]][[nbsp]] Also, I think Graham's "house" argument is flawed. Just because Delta provides services to the public, that doesn't make Delta a public space; it's a private business and someone—not the state or the city—is paying rent to use the property. It can choose to close to the public and hold private functions at anytime, it can remove a patron at will by claiming said patron is trespassing, and to be sure, it can choose (at their own risk) to look the other way when smokers light up.<br> - <br> - [[nbsp]][[nbsp]] Look, I'm not a smoker, and I'm not a big fan of cigarette smoke either. But if secondhand smoke in an outdoor space like Delta (or even some of the local bars) is a person's concern, if you think about it, if the smoking ban was enforced, there would merely be hordes of people smoking in the parking lot or on the sidewalk ''directly adjacent'' to the patio, so you'd be exposed to the smoke regardless. At the very least, if smoking is allowed on the premises, the business can control the litter and eyesore of huge congresses of smokers loitering about. Better than having cigarette butts strewn about the streets and sidewalks. --["BriannaBetancourt"]<br> - <br> - * Yes it is a business, and not a public place. However, the law is actually in place to protect the employees from poor working conditions. It is not for the customers. After all the customer can choose not to go there. However, every employer must provide safe working conditions for its employees regardless of whether the business is private or public. ["users/MattHh"]<br> - <br> - * This is a poor argument considering the staff work primarily inside the building. The smoking section only has chairs so there is no reason for them to have to walk through it to serve food. --["users/SolomonBothwell"]<br> - <br> - * Not quite sure if I understand you, Solomon. Wouldn't staff still be potentially walking thru smoke when serving customers outside? I've walked thru plenty of smoke in front of Delta. I don't really see how chairs make a difference?<br> - To the general debate, I'd also like to point out that cigarette smoke causes a lot more issues than just cancer. I don't want to lecture, the hazards are widely advertised, but let me refer to one small, but very common, side effect. Second hand smoke accelerates a lot of allergies. I experience that a lot and it sucks. --["JeffTolentino"]<br> - <br> - ------</span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 218: </td> <td> Line 141: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- <br> - we serve no decaf, always regular.</span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 232: </td> <td> Line 153: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- ''2007-10-22 16:46:44'' [[nbsp]]</span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 234: </td> <td> Line 154: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- dear delta non-smokers,<br> - if you don't like smoke, politely ask people to not smoke near you.<br> - <br> - dear delta smokers,<br> - please be nice and stop smoking if someone asks, or else i will make you.<br> - <br> - love,<br> - eric --["Users/EricRedpath"]<br> - ------</span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 253: </td> <td> Line 164: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- ''2008-01-23 11:32:03'' [[nbsp]] You tell 'em, Eric. --["Users/ElizabethJohnson"]<br> - ------</span> </td> <td> <span>+ </span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Delta of Venushttp://daviswiki.org/Delta_of_Venus2008-05-07 20:17:45leewalthallstreamlining page and adding info <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Delta of Venus<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 24: </td> <td> Line 24: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- '''Delta of Venus''' is sort of the ["Hippies" hippie] coffee shop of Davis.

Lee expanded the live music and dj dance scene, added daily happy hour, and brought in his longtime friend Chef Iwaca to cook the Delta's famous Carribbean cuisine.</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Delta of Venushttp://daviswiki.org/Delta_of_Venus2008-03-07 00:45:21at86Comment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Delta of Venus<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 255: </td> <td> Line 255: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2008-03-06 23:45:21'' [[nbsp]] Prices on the menu (at least for the beverages) need to be updated. --["Users/at86"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Delta of Venushttp://daviswiki.org/Delta_of_Venus2008-01-24 03:08:11JabberWokky <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Delta of Venus<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 49: </td> <td> Line 49: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> ["Users/RuthFankushen"] writes, "Delta of Venus was named not for the book (although the title was definitely taken into consideration).
