Reliably good breakfast in a cozy atmosphere

I have eaten here a number of times, and it never disappoints. I usually visit with friends and we often will split plates to enjoy the best of a sweet and a savory dish. There are always delicious specials which are creative & seasonal, but not whacky. Last visit we split an eggs Benedict... read more

While writing an article on the making of Jonnycakes I made numerous "research" visits to the Barn. On one occasion the "red hat ladies" had taken up a line of tables and were more rowdy that a table of teenagers, with shouts and raucous laughter. This is a feel good sort of place, where you can get well prepared breakfasts... More

I like the place for breakfast. Has outdoor seating patio in summer which is shaded and nice. My only complaint is bring your wallet, the dishes here are quite expensive!

We had a large family gathering for breakfast here in August. Service was good, if not stunningly fast. The food was good, if not stunningly tasty. The Barn enjoys a "must do" reputation in the Little Compton area and certainly there's nothing like it for many miles. But despite the hype, it is difficult to say that it offers really... More

There is a reason this place is packed every morning. The food here is worth the wait. The menu is large and having sampled nearly all of the options over the past 15 years coming here, I have never had a bad meal. The specials are excellent as well. If you are in the area, you need to come to... More

An extremely popular breakfast/brunch place. Not fancy. A real family feel with a great selection and excellent food. If you are in the area, it is well worth having breakfast there. You will understand why on weekend mornings there can be a line to get in. Worth the wait.

I really like breakfast here. The daily specials are always yummy, including the homemade coffee cake, which is a huge piece of fresh baked goodness. The staff is usually attentive and are always refilling your coffee. This is still a pretty rural area and there aren't many places around that serve a good breakfast so this is my top recommendation... More

Location and service were great. Nice barn redone into a restaurant. However, the food was adequate at best. Our eggs were just barely warm and not really good at all. Sausage h. ad not taste. I don't see what all the hoopla is about. Probably won't go again.

Great specials and very good food, nice place to eat and have a conversation! Sweet bread French toast is the best and order the fresh on!

I love this hidden gem! Known mostly to locals - but so worth finding it if you are on a mission to find something rustic with great breakfast options. The atmosphere is small and cozy in a rehabbed barn. Food is consistently good, staff is friendly. Eggs Benedict is perfect, the omelets are also to die for!
