This is such a delightful experience, particularly in summer time when you can enjoy sitting outdoors and marveling at the pleasant atmosphere and delicious food, be it breakfast or lunch. Do not miss this unique experience and fine dining. It is memorable.

Charming old building in downtown Blowing Rock. They have a garden area too with seating but we were there in fall and it was too cold to sit outside. Everyone was so friendly. Breakfast was delicious! Recommend the Belgian Waffle! We will come back next time we visit Blowing Rock!

When we stay in Blowing Rock, Village Cafe is our Go-To spot. It is worth any wait you might have. Annie works hard to get everyone in no matter what. Service is top notch. We are never disappointed. French Toast is the best I have had any where.

This is a lovely little cafe in the heart of downtown. The staff was very friendly, and the food was outstanding. We had a great brunch to begin our day. I recommend reservations to ensure a seat!

It was a cute place. Food was good but average. We had a new server who was very slow. I thought it would be better.

Been eating a lunch in there for years. They have always had a diverse selection of sandwiches and salads that have been very good. Soups in the past have been excellent. This year, something has changed. My Caesar Salad was poorly dressed, and anchovies are not available. We had two Cream of ____ soups, and both were very thin and... More
