If you have not tried this ice cream you haven't tasted ice cream. Wide selection, free samples, and watch the fudge being made by

This restaurant is like a beautiful secret garden a few steps below the bustle of Main Street, Blowing Rock. The brunch items, such as waffles and eggs Benedict are always delicious. The soups and sandwiches are not run of the mill offerings. Service is great.

One of the best places for a Devine brunch or lunch experience. Ms Annie runs a very tight ship, with hand picked servers she trains to do things they way she thinks they should be done. She's spot on, and service is uncompromising. So is the demand for the fabulous food, so don't think you'll get in without a reservation... More

Just spent 4 days in Blowing Rock & had breakfast at the Village Cafe twice. If you're in BR you'll miss out on a terrific dining experience if you don't visit the Village Cafe! Food is excellent and service is top notch also. You must try the fugasa bread made there along with other deliciously prepared dishes. Hands down one... More

Exiting busy Main St in Blowing Rock you walk down a flight of stairs to a wonderful courtyard filled with tables under the tree canopy. While the VC has some indoor dining, plan your visit for a day when dining outside would make a delicious meal even more enjoyable. We love going there for a birthday or other special day... More

As you step off Main Street onto the brick walk it's as if you are entering another little world, the walk is flanked by foliage and within steps it opens up and there are two small white cottages and outdoor seating. We had the place to ourselves for an early season breakfast, we choose to sit inside in the cottage... More

This restaurant is hidden away down some stairs and through a lovely garden. There is seating in the garden. When we visited, the garden wasn't open for the season. On the weekend they serve brunch all day. Salads, sandwiches and entrees are available, too. They have a great brunch selection. Not enough food for my husband as eggs benedict did... More

Opening day for season and food was quite good despite snotty hostess. Sautéed sandwiches are winners.
