I think this place offers a splendid working environment, with a great selection of libations. The food is a bit overpriced and doesn't quite keep up with the quality of the coffee and wine selection offered. Self service, and comfortable seating. I like the one on Monroe st.

This place is changing their menu so all things weren't readily available when we had lunch there. The Cuban was great. They were very accommodating for my blended chai as well. Cute place. Great customer service. The group next to us couldn't get the sandwich they wanted and a guy came out to personally apologize and gave them a pound... More

Stopped in for a quick carryout to our hotel, just expecting the average deli. Was pleasantly surprised to find the most delicious and fresh sandwiches. (I had the turkey club with avacado.) Wasn't familiar with the wine, but the staff helped me select a chilled bottle, not to sweet, that was perfect and exactly what I wanted. Service was a... More

Espresso drinks are very good here, through not quite at the Colectivo level, but certainly worth visiting again. Off-beat wine selection, but mostly New-World and not particularly well curated.

I stopped in last night and had an excellent coffee (Kenya) on my way to the symphony. It hit the spot and I'm really impressed with Barrique's late hours. About me: I've roasted coffee at home for the last 8 years and own two professional espresso machines along with two pro grinders and a lot of other equipment, so it's... More

Buy a mop, hire a janitor, please do something. I love the food, drinks, location and vibe but I'm giving up after being a regular customer for 3 months! It's gross. Tables are sticky, railings and fixtures are covered in a thick layer of dust, the floors and stairs look like they have never been swept much less mopped. Swarms... More

Get the Mexican Mocha! I went over a month ago and I have been dreaming about it ever since! I wish I had this place where I lived!

Very relaxing ambiance if looking for a place to unwind from white noise. The wine selection is what you'd expect in a small place. I found several good value french (under $25) and shared it with friends. We sat by the window in the early evening facing W. Washington Ave and enjoyed unhurried conversation catching up on whatever came to... More

Tried the Mexican Mocha. Definitely a walk on the wilder side. Cayenne in a coffee drink in the AM is interesting. the food we had tasted fresh and was filling.

This place is adorable and yummy! We stayed at Hyatt Place up the street and this was the closet place to get a great cup of coffee!! The scones and egg sandwiches were delish too!!! We visited in June and enjoyed the outside seating area to relax and read the paper with our latte's. Great neighborhood coffee spot!

Thank Mitsu114

There are multiple locations for this cafe/coffee shop/wine cave. We went to the West Washington location multiple times on our trip. It is a wonderful place!
