Thank you for your kind review! The Vermonter breakfast sandwich is one of our most popular sellers, and we often get requests for it at lunch time also (even though breakfast generally stops at 11 AM). Thanks for dining with us, and we hope to see you again soon! - Josh More

Went for lunch on a Saturday. The place is small, maybe holds 15-20 diners, but the food is wonderful and the staff is so pleasant. I had the chicken rice soup, it was thick with rice and nice and hot. They serve sandwiches, wraps, soups and breakfasts; and a wide variety of freshly baked muffins and pies. Pie slices were...

Went to the Red Barn café for lunch - everything from the friendly staff a to the delicious food made this a welcome relief from the cold and snowing weather. I had the tuna melt and it came out hot and gooey and loaded with tuna, tomato with some chips. Prices are very reasonable and made when ordered.

Quaint New England cafe with lots of personality! Local, family run, amazing staff. And of course the homemade food keeps us going back for more. Every time I go, I see something else on the menu I want to try next time! From sandwiches, wraps, soups, salads, and quiche, to brownies, cookies, pies, cake, coffees and more! Always an awesome...

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
