“Dinner under a tent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

If you want a perfectly delightful meal to accompany your visit to the bucolic Jacobs
Pillow, walk no farther than the Pillow Cafe. You will find an array of well appointed
tables under a milky white tent with the sides open to the passing scene. Each table
has a small bouquet of wild flowers to echo the surrounding flora. The well trained
waitstaff offers a good but small selection of well chosen wines at fair prices. The menu
is simple but adequate and the food was better than expected. We had a fresh salad
with fruits and pistachios preceding a nice rare breast of duck with cherries and a
vegetarian risotto entree followed by gelato parfaits adorned with fresh berries and
whipped cream. Although the pub fare nearby also is enticing, the festive atmosphere
of the cafe is worth the extra expense.

“Take your time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

It is so beautiful to be here that a nice picnic meal before the dance performance is a wonderful way to extend the experience.

“Nice before a show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

Second time we have been here before a Pillow show. Small selection but there were some good choices. I had the trout which was cooked perfectly and very tasty. Helen had the duck which was a little undercooked. Nice wine selection. Service was good and the location and view under the unaided tent was lovely (sides can be put down in bad weather. we realize this is not a year round place but they did a good job.
