After a standing wait in crowded entryway for seating, another wait for service, and finally getting overcooked, browned scrambled eggs, very ordinary o.j., tasteless hash with o.k. poached eggs, good coffee, brought to our tiny table by a pleasant and efficient server, we could not see why The Barn is so highly rated. At best a slightly sub-par diner experience... More

We had really good omelettes, pancakes, and crab cake Benedict. Nice variety of food in an interesting building. I kept wondering how it would work out in the winter since they are year round. The sauce was different than I am used to.

We were in town for a wedding and in search of a great breakfast - happily, we found it here! I had the special lobster omelette and it was excellent! One tip for out-of-towners: the custom here is to put your own name down on the wait list, not to give your name to the hostess. It took us awhile... More

We were out looking at houses and a friend recommended the barn. It doesn't look like a barn from the outside but does on the inside. Very rustic! I had the Portuguese omelette which was very good. The home fries were excellent. Very flavorful! Heard the cinnamon buns were excellent but unfortunately they had just sold out. Prices were average!... More

Great breakfast, with great service - however the heat and lack of air flow made it slightly uncomfortable late morning. There also were a lot of flies about which I know is difficult to control in the heat/eating area but it did take away some of the enjoyment away. The pancake stacks were beautiful and fresh with plenty of syrup... More

The Barn has a wide menu of breakfast treats. I had the raisin pecan French Toast - just yummy! My friend had a Portuguese omelet - loaded with chourico and cheese. He had a plate of raisin pecan toast and home fries. We can't wait ot go back!

Great shrimp Mozambique eggs Benedict for him and veggie omlet for me. I never eat the home fries or bread, but I did here. The home fries were perfectly cooked and the pecan raisin bread was irresistible. No a/c and with sweat streaming down my leg I was happy I finished my meal!

This place is another hidden gem! They only serve breakfast and they can be very busy at times, but they are definitely worth a stop or two or three.... Staff is really pleasant and fast. Food is awesome! Highly recommend the Portuguese Omelet, which I asked for no onions. I was told that I could not get the omelet with... More
