Great opening day

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

This is a little gem in Blowing Rock. Off the main street, it has a quiet little garden in the back which is full of atmosphere. Annie, the owner and hostess is a pure delight. The menu is changed on a regular basis. We had a seafood soup which was off the charts. We also had a wonderful chicken crepe... More

This is a great jewel in the town of Blowing Rock. The owners are really hands on, I mean really, The atmosphere and oasis like atmosphere is hard to beat in downtown Blowing Rock. Service top notch! The only drawback for us is that the prices are a little high for biweekly b fast stops. The food and all is... More

We were greeted by the owner who was smiling and most pleasant. The food was nothing less than A+. The service was A+ and the coffee at brunch was superior. The outdoor seating under the trees was so nice in this quaint little mountain village. We didn't want to leave it was so pleasant. Great breakfast and lunch place. A... More

Do not miss a visit to The Village Cafe during your trip to Blowing Rock! This seasonal restaurant offers open air dining at tables surrounded by sumptuous shade gardens filled with Hostas, ferns and trees. There are also a few tables inside, but with open windows and doors, so this is a warm-season restaurant serving delicious breakfast/brunch/lunch. Follow the shaded,... More

Food, service, and patio are average. Indoor dining is not especially appealing. Difficult access to restrooms.

The service is always perfect, food is alway presented beautiful and the over all experience is special. This is not your country breakfast kind of place, which I do like but a restaurant to make any day special with a breakfast or lunch at the Village Cafe.

Located in a nice garden area down the stairs and along a path leading off of main street in the heart of Blowing Rock, the Village Cafe is an interesting spot for breakfast or lunch. The menu includes tempting breakfast dishes as well and several entrees as well as several salads and sandwiches for lunch. Service is usually good although... More

We have been going to the Village Cafe for breakfast for several years and we go every morning that we are in Blowing Rock. There is no better place to have breakfast then the Village Inn. Annie is an awesome host and the breakfast is yummy! Can't wait to return next year. Thanks Annie for having such a wonderful place... More

Our experience at the Cafe was positive. We made reservation by phone at 8 a.m. for a 12:30 lunch. We arrived a few minutes early and were seated right away. We were seated upstairs in a cozy room of the very old house. The charm of the old building was captivating.The waitress was very bubbly and did a good job.... More
