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...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,...More

There twice during recent wedding visit to Madison. Loved their single origin coffees (Ethiopian yirgacheffe etc). Cute wine shop with 100+ selections almost all $10-20 btl. I am a wine snob but thought they did a great job at a price point everyone can enjoy....More

Stopped in to kill some time before the crazy legs race and had a chocolate chip scone. It was amazing. Cute place with good atmosphere. Staff was very friendly. Would like to come back and try a coffee sometime.

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!
