A locally owned business, Dagny’s has been slinging rejuvenating cups of java to Bakersfield residents since the mid ‘90s. Stop in to fill up a fuel tank with a small espresso ($1.50) or macciato ($2.50) while noshing on a fresh bagel ($1.50), scone ($2.25), or muffin ($2.25). Ponder the meaning of last night’s freakishly surrealist dreams with a crisp salad ($8.50) or hearty sandwich ($8.50). While visiting, kick back amid the laid-back ambience and enjoy the free WiFi access. Stick around to check out the regularly featured live music. Free of bawdy lumberjacks carelessly showing off their beard-growing skills, Dagny’s Coffee Company offers a friendly spot for soaking up good vibes and relaxing with friends.
Don?t try to get Jerry to spill the beans on how he makes his pizzas. A secret list of ingredients makes up the sauce, and a secret old-country tradition goes into making the dough. And a traditional stone-hearth oven may or may not cook the pies to a crisp finish. But Jerry will let you know which toppings he uses, so you can customize your crust with a secret white sauce, jalape?os, Louisiana hot sausage, red onions, and artichoke hearts. Jerry will also toss all the pizza toppings into a doughy calzone pocket if customers so choose. And on the weekends, while Jerry is busy in the kitchen, live musicians and butter sculptors entertain guests.
John's Incredible Pizza Co. graces guests with acres of incandescent entertainment options and a fully stocked buffet ($9.49 value, $1.50 value for drinks).

To craft their signature dish?The New York Sizzle? the chefs of Steak & Grape Restaurant hand carve a choice cut of Angus steak. They sizzle up the meat in a special broiler until it's juicy and tender, and then serve it on a 600-degree plate with a decadent garlic butter. Servers bear the premium cuts out into the airy, rustic dining room, along with plates of handmade specialty burgers, fine pastas, and fresh seafood. Bartenders bustle about behind the sleek wood bar, uncorking bottles of fine wines beneath the glow of flat-screen TVs.
