I had a piece of salmon on a bed of rice and some hardly cooked string beans. Three of us ate, two of us had one glass of wine each, and our bill (before tip) came to just over $90. The owner was rude to our waitress in front of us, and the atmosphere in the kitchen was tense when... More

We have been hearing about this place for a while but never had the time to try it until now. YUM! I can't wait to move up here so I can go again and again for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! Among the 5 of us, all were very pleased and satisfied with our dinner choices. We started off with the... More

I like going to The Barefoot Cafe, solo or with a friend, for lunch or for dinner. They serve classic Italian comfort food and reliably so. The food is very generous, the staff always caring. I love their Eggplant Parmegiana. Coffee is good too. Good clean food.

This is an establishment I have been to several times and loved the food and service EVERY time. Not huge, but surprisingly very accomodating for many, many people. The food is excellent and very "in-season". The "family" owned/run business includes everyone there - they are all family even if not related.

My husband and I ate breakfast here and the food was just amazing. We split a vanilla shake and it was probably one of the best shakes I have had. The food was equally delicious. The eggs and french toasts were cooked perfectly. The environment was laid back and the staff was exceptional. Probably the best service I had on... More

We arrived 15 minutes late for breakfast, so they were serving lunch which was mostly sandwiches, burgers, and salad. My tuna melt on sourdough was tasty, and others in my group enjoyed their meal. Portions were generous. Staff was very friendly and attentive.

Came for breakfast and you could tell the level of care that goes into the food preparation and overall management. Place was spotless and food delicious. Lots of nice touches like fresh pico and salsa verde, and if you are there in the fall, be sure to try the pumpkin pancakes!

I can't say enough wonderful things about this restaurant. We eat here at least once a month. Breakfast is great, but dinner is even better. There are fantastic specials every night. If they have seafood risotto that night you have to order it. The service is friendly and warm and you always feel welcome.
