Traveling away from home for work is made better when a local gem is found. I found the food great and the service wonderful. This visit will lead to many more I'm sure.

Great place for lunch. Food consists of a variety of sandwiches, salads and deserts. A hopping place with many locals on the day of our visit. We did had some wait time for our meal but it did not disappoint. I had a chicken teriyaki wrap that was very good, even though the soy sauce was overdone, We usually visit... More

This could be a destination eatery but it isn't. This classic old hardware store could be decorated floor to ceiling reusing all the wall space but it's half empty. Feels like they got started and just lost interest in decorating it. The formerly decorated front windows, a goldmine of possible curb appeal, are currently mostly empty, making the place appear...

This delightful cafe, in an old hardware store, is so much fun. We loved looking around at all the old tools on the walls while we waiting for lunch.... and lunch was well worth the short wait! The lunch special - turkey and havarti cheese on homemade raisin bread with raspberry preserves and mayo - was outstanding, served with chips... More

Excellent venue with a very original design. Good menu options and the food is v reasonably priced. The food itself i feel could be slightly better and a little more imaginative but overall a very good place.

I love this cafe! The inside is so rustic and surreal. The little bit of renovations doesn't take away from the origin of the store. The food is great! The price is great and the only thing I wish is that they were open all week , all day long! :-) My fav place to eat in warrenton! By far!

Good food, lots of choices, good desserts, go as you are for casual dining for lunch. I've only eaten here for lunch but it's a great choice. They even let you stay until they close at 3pm (we arrived at noon.) The place was an old hardware store and still has lots of the old goodies from long ago. Neat... More

The atmosphere at Hardware Cafe was pretty cute! My sandwich was okay, nothing to write home about but decent. The potato chips were average. The key lime pie was really good!
