My husband and I are fairly new patrons of this cafe. ..We stopped on a whim and were confronted with a large array of delicious looking pastries. It was hard to choose but we picked the raspberry coconut bar and lemon square -( both delicious). That said, we went back. Tthe pumpkin pie is by far, hands down, THE best... More

One of the most friendly places I've stopped to eat at in the last many years. Family run operation, smiles all around, and a Big bonus... The food was AMAZING! We had two different types of soup, two different types of Quiche (both with Bacon!) and a scrumptious dessert - the Rasberry square!! Pricing was excellent, I'd almost say it... More

Don't be fooled by the unassuming exterior. The gourmet sandwiches on home made bread were excellent.

We were regulars when Red Barn was under previous ownership and my husband and I were thrilled to hear Red Barn had re-opened. We've been twice for lunch since re-opening and are happy to report the new Owners have kept the same menu but made 'improvements'. The family running Red Barn all seem lovely, and have put their own touches... More

The Red Barn Cafe has changed ownership. It maintains it's friendly atmosphere but has added new items to the offerings. The soups are amazing, can not imagine how they can be any better anywhere. They do their own bread baking, make quality sandwiches, and the deserts are always freshly made with many selections. If you are having lunch in Windsor... More

While touring the area we came across the Red Barn. The food was excellent..wished we bought some lunch for the tour Josh sent us on. Great people, great attitudes and personalities and great food. Stop by...you'll be glad you did. Have Josh draw you a map if you're not clear on directions!
