Great Sunday Brunch

We had brunch here and it was great. The restuarant offers Al fresco and indoor dining. The breakfast menu is full of tempting choices that makes the selection process fun. They do wonderful omelette, poached eggs, waffles and other items. The outdoor patio is very nice and the staff is excellent.

We had brunch at the Village Cafe. It was a cool, sunny morning and I felt as if I were eating in someone's garden. The food was very good and lots of choices. I had Eggs Benedict and it was delicious. Lots of wait staff on hand to keep coffee cups full.

A garden lunch at the Village Café treated the diner to a diverse menu at surprisingly low prices. Excellent table service produced hot crab and corn chowder, chicken crepes, Greek salad, iced tea, mimosas, and a superb rice pudding. The menu avoided the trendy silliness in so many restaurants, e.g., chipotle and hoisin this and that, and stuck to pleasing... More

Our Garden Club always enjoys lunch at the Village Cafe when we are in Blowing Rock for the Tour of Homes. The food and service are always good and this year's visit was great. They are very accommodating to us and handle our large group reservation well.

We had a deghtful lunch in a beautiful setting. Reservations are a must. Blowing Rock is an interesting little town to wander, & nearby Bass Lake is great place to enjoy the great outdoors.

Wind down the narrow path beside the "new" building in town. See the little white cottage with the lovely fenced garden patio? You have arrived for the BEST kept "secret". The Village Cafe's owners are the Chef and the Hostess. Relax, you are in good hands in a friendly place with exceptional food whether you choose to eat inside the... More

The Village Cafe is almost hidden from the hustle and bustle of crowds on the streets of Blowing Rock. A stone path leads through a beautiful garden to the Cafe. While waiting to be seated for lunch, we enjoyed the opportunity to sit in the shade and enjoy the wonderful garden. The service was excellent and the food was wonderful.

My friend wanted to take me out for my birthday, so after we shopped in Boone, we went to the Village Cafe for lunch.. She had made reservations and we were a little late because of the road construction. We ate outside and the weather was perfect..upper 70's. The only thing bad were the things that kept dropping from the... More
