great coffee, food and service

Even though it is part of a strip mall this is a wonderful place for coffee, a bite and conversation. Easy atmosphere with tables and couches and a fire place. Staff was helpful and friendly. Went back twice in 2 days while visiting Madison. Visited December 2014

I have been to all of the Barrique's locations, except the one on Park Street. I really love going to these cafes! They specialize in coffee and wine--you can taste either while there, or purchase coffee beans, wine/liquor to take home for later. Depending on the location, you can order from a small menu of sandwiches or appetizers, and some... More

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
