One of my favorites in Blowing Rock!

This little gem is one of my absolute favorite places in Blowing Rock! Precious courtyard that is so charming in the summer months. Food and service is fantastic!

Just happened upon this great combination Deli/Market/Restaurant as we were arriving in Blowing Rock mid morning. Loved the atmosphere! Sat at a table right by the fireplace and enjoyed a lovely breakfast complete with mimosas!! Everything was delicious!! Will definitely come back!

Atmosphere is so nice. If the weather is nice you can dine in the garden. There is no air conditioner, so in the summer it can be a little warm if you dine inside. However it's worth it. The food is amazing. Make reservations if you want to eat here. It's always crowded when we have been. I would recommend!!

After reading the reviews we were excited to try this place but at 1:00 on a Tuesday, they were closed! We will try again later as the menu looks amazing!

Went for lunch with my parents. We went on recommendation and reputation. We did not have a reservation so after a 45 min. wait, we were lucky to get in. The place is very quaint. We said outside of the little bar area right near the large stone fireplace. It was it cozy ! The food is phenomenal !!!! I... More

It's down a beautiful little path in downtown Blowing Rock. Great atmosphere and great service. Best Belgian waffles ever, with fresh fruit and pecans.

We had always seen the sign for Village Cafe on the street & thought we'd visit someday, but had never gotten around to it... until now. Went to Village Café for lunch on a Tuesday in October. We were surprised to find it was a quaint old house down a lovely path between the Main Street buildings. It was packed... More

We had a great breakfast to conclude our week in the mountains. Really nice garden setting if the weather is good. Otherwise seating in the quaint house café. Good food and good service. Go early for breakfast or have reservation

The coffee was "okay", the food quite good. The staff were very busy but unfortunately they were lacking in their clearing of tables as many had empty, used... More
