We always look forward to Barriques when we are in Madison--great coffee, great ambiance. We also love the outdoor seating. Its just a quiet, calm,lovey place to read and have delicious coffee.

Great recommendation from my hotel clerk... Cool coffee shop with an awesome breakfast wrap! Very reasonably priced! One block from the capital, I will be back for sure!! Free WiFi and cheap coffee refills!

One of the best coffee shops in Madison for sitting and working, with a good mix of professionals and students. The space is large enough that you're not likely to be distracted by the people sitting next to you, but small enough that it doesn't feel hectic. Limited access to power strips, and the coffee itself is nothing spectacular.

The sign outside says it is a wine bar, but it is a very good coffee shop. I had a delicious iced latte and a delightful scone. I recommend it.

My colleague and I tried Barriques at the recommendation of my son. This turned out to be a great stop. The coffee was very good but the atmosphere was even better. I was quite impressed with the décor and layout of the place. The interior was two levels with a balcony overlooking a nostalgic first floor. The appearance was almost... More

The coffee is good, the food is OK. But whatever you do, don't go when you are in a hurry! I have been to the Old Sauk location on multiple occasions when it has taken 5+ minutes to get a plain coffee (with less than 3 people in front of me). Very frustrating. Seems to be a lot of staff... More

My husband and I went to Barriques to do some work while visiting family. I was disappointed that they were out of yogurt but the wrap I ordered was delicious as was my mocha! However, I was a little annoyed that there were not more outlets to plug in our computers. Overall, I would come back.

Though my food was good, my companions was forgotten. After I brought it to the staffs attention they seemed to take their time to whip together the four ingredient salad. I would expect an establishment of this price to at least deliver the lost meal. Not this slow business day. My name was yelled and the sorry salad sat on... More

We stop here every time we pass through Madison. We choose to avoid the busy roads at rush hour by parking it downtown and enjoying coffee and food before we head back out. We travel between Wisconsin and Iowa often. On the way down it's Friday evening and we always stop here. They have a wine tasting if you want... More
