I've heard people raving about the village cafe for a while now and decided to try it. Adorable spot, and very friendly staff. The food wasn't quite what I thought t would be. I ordered an entree dish and it was considerably small. It was simply a side salad with a piece of salmon. The soup and potato salad were... More

I found this gem while doing a morning walk in downtown Blowing Rock. You walk down a path from the Main Street to the restaurant which is a two- story building with very nice outdoor seating- weather permitting. Menu is posted along the path; lunch menu starts at 11 but you can do breakfast all day. Reservations are suggested for... More

Had a lovely breakfast here in the garden! Food was terrific, bread was scrumptious, and wait staff very professional. Perfect relaxing start to our busy day!

When in Blowing Rock for some cooler weather during hot summer months, be sure to give the Village Café a try. We had a delightful lunch recently. The VC has a beautiful, shaded garden with outdoor seating; nice indoor seating, too, in case of inclement weather. Lunch / brunch was excellent, with a nice selection of interesting dishes, along with... More

Our favorite place for breakfast or brunch! There is inside dining, but highly recommend dining in the lovely flower garden! Terrific atmosphere and just delicious food! A bit pricey but the atmosphere and attentive staff are worth it. Suggest making a reservation on weekends in season.

First off, entering the restaurant is simply adorable: meandering down a short stone path into the garden area and seeing the patio and restaurant. A more elegant lunch, I would liken this to nicer tea rooms I've visited. Servers are dressed nicely and fairly formal, fresh flowers on the tables, etc. I brought my young children but I would only... More

Breakfast is great! Enjoy having breakfast in the garden area. Always try and go there when we are in BR. Haven't tried lunch, but feel sure it's good as well. Try this place!

It was my first time here and I can't wait to go back! I just love the ambience. The restaurant is tucked away from the street. You need to walk down a lovely path to get to the garden and then the restaurant is in a 2 story quaint little old house. We were seated upstairs and was greeted by... More
