Our first visit to Blowing Rock was highlighted by brunch at Village Cafe, a very well-run restaurant tucked away behind the businesses on Main Street. Located next to Kilwin's, a sign points you toward a serpentine path, through a beautifully landscaped garden, that arrives at the old house (circa 1880's) that serves as the center point for all activity.

The delicious food combined with the charming atmosphere of a secreted mountain garden house makes this place a delight to visit!We were made aware of this wonderful jewel of a eatery by another restaurant owner as a great place to have a Sunday breakfast. We were not disappointed! Our party consisted of four adults and 2 young children. I made... More

Beautiful setting, delicious food, great coffee, kind waitresses and a very diverse menu. We all had something different, but I think my favorite was my fresh fruit crepe. The fruit tasted and looked like it was fresh cut just for her, and the whipped cream on top tasted like my grandmother's. Will definitely return.

We had a lunch meal at Village Cafe on a busy Saturday. It was raining, so no outdoor seating. We called ahead for a reservation and when we arrived a bit early, they were able to find seating for the three of us. We had the specials of the day. The entire menu is impressive, and if we had not... More

The Village Cafe is a real gem hidden away off the Main Street in Blowing Rock. The garden setting is delightful and indoor dining is enjoyable as well. The food is very good and service is also very good. This is a popular place, so reservations are highly recommended

8 of us went at 11 am on a Sunday and were able to order breakfast or lunch. Nice ambiance. Lots of different options. Crepes were a hit.

Breakfast recommended by the Homestead Inn and are we glad! Wonderful location, setting, food and service. We would have stayed for lunch if we remained in town. Absolutely charming and highly recommended.
