Nice enjoyable breakfast

We stopped for a quick breakfast on the way from MA to Sakonnet Vineyards... nice barn building, good food/service and decent selection of breakfast choices. Glad we found on TA and stopped by

First time visit for breakfast. I had the "Six Gun on a Bun" which was simply an awesome burst of flavors, including the best home fries ever with a perfect crisp and cooked fully. Wife had the "Westport River omelette", substituted the Swiss cheese with Cheddar without any problem and loved it. The coffees were delivered in full size mugs... More

It's cute and cozy, but the locals would have you believe it's Wonderful. Not so much. Not bad, for sure, but it's a nice breakfast place. No more. Best breakfast in the area? Perhaps, but that is damned by faint praise.

The barn has an amazing menu and much of the food was great, but the wonderful pancakes were ruined by fake maple syrup. I think I must be spoiled by eating at breakfast places that have the real stuff. I would have asked if I had thought about it. The atmosphere was great and the wait staff attentive. I'd recommend...

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 with hash browns side included-about $9.00,... 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.
