Daisy Baker's is located in a four-story 1892 brownstone. The Young Women's Association, predecessor to today's YWCA, commissioned the building. It provided safe quarters for young women who came to Troy for employment in this prosperous 19th century industrial city. Troy was the 4th wealthiest city in the United States at that time. Pre-eminent architect Marcus Cummings designed the building. He came to Troy in 1862 to help rebuild after a fire destroyed much of Troy's business district. The room that is now Daisy Baker's is a replica of his original music room on the Emma Willard campus.
Since 1974, Daisy Baker's has provided great food and spirits. Today, we offer a fully stocked bar, extensive wine list, eclectic New American cuisine, and a clean and friendly atmosphere to enjoy entertainment. When you enter our dining space, you will feel as though you are stepping back in time. We welcome you for dinner, or for your next private event.
