“Delicious menu, charming atmosphere, attentive service”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

So what else can you ask for? Details - breakfast served all day, lunch menu starts at 11 a.m. We chose from the breakfast menu. Toast made with Fugasa, an Argentine sourdough bread. It makes traditional French toast even better. Extensive menu also offers omelets, variations on Eggs Benedict, crepes, Belgian waffles, to name a few. Very hard to settle on one dish, so this cafe conveniently offers half-orders of some items so you can combine a savory dish with a sweet. I had a half-order of French toast and a half-order of Charleston Benedict (crab cake subs for the Canadian bacon.) Really, really good. Tables in the garden are lovely, but the tables inside the old home, listed on the National Register of Historic Places are comfortable and have their own appeal. Our service was top notch. Reservations are a good idea, especially on weekends. Open late April to early November.
Tip for the disabled: when you make a reservation for your table, reserve a parking space at the cafe's entrance on Greenway Court, the one-way lane that runs parallel to Main Street. Garden tables require no steps from Greenway Court. Indoor tables and restroom require 3-4 steps.

“THIS is the place for an excellent breakfast!”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Breakfast this morning at quaint, cozy Village Cafe. Excellent coffee, fresh squeezed orange juice (yes!), Waffles very good, Eggs Benedict the best I've ever had....and very good service. Can't say enough about it. Beautiful courtyard for those braving the chilly morning...with several nice tables. Looking forward to lunch here before we head back to the beach. You need to go here and sit by the fireplace on a cold morning.

“Great food, nice atomodphere”
Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

Pecan Encrusted Chicken Breast Goat Cheese Salad was unbelievable. Both the tomato and the wild mushroom soup were amazing. Had House Salad with smoke turkey and that was very good. Overall, great food, great service and nice atomodphere.

“Delicious brunch!”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

My wife and I really enjoy the Village Cafe.

We made our second visit in as many trips over this past weekend and had brunch here before we left Blowing Rock. We did not get to eat outside as it was cold and drizzling outside, but the historic house is really awesome inside and makes for a unique dining setting. The smells as soon as you walk in really get you prepared for the awesome food!

Both times, I have ordered the french toast and sausage. They're excellent, and service is great as well.

Don't miss this restaurant in Blowing Rock (they serve breakfast / brunch / lunch), and don't forget to make reservations!
