Lovely atmosphere, great cakes and coffer

Lisa Heinz

You support local sustainability when you buy your lunch and calm your sweet tooth here. Everything is seasonal and made on site, and it's a no microwave zone. Want a mid-day wine tasting? They've got you covered every day!

Abigail Klein

Very bland and unseasoned food, made me sick and I only ate a few bites of my $12 meal. Pretty sad menu and very floury biscuit that couldn't be improved with butter. I love supporting local food, but this is not the place to do it - the food should at least taste good!

Jon Davenport

Great people and the eggs are omg amazing!

Dave Graff


Terribly overpriced. $12 for a plate of slimy eggs, floury "biscuit", unseasoned potatoes, and a sad chicken sausage. All their baked goods looked old and dry. All talk, no substance

Stephanie McAfee

Jeff Wilson

It's become an institution, serving local fare and fantastic breads and pastries. You can also stock up on some local foods like cheese, eggs, and milk, and there's a good selection of beers and wine. On top of all that, they have a nice array of locally produced items like art and jewelry. Solar powered with geothermal HVAC - they're doing everything right!

I have only been here a few times but I definitely see myself going back many times in the future. I've only gotten coffee here and a sandwich once, I can't even remember what the sandwich was but it was recommended to me and it was fantastic. I look forward to trying their quiche it looks excellent. The staff is always very nice and helpful and I've never had a bad experience here. Everything is high quality and very very delicious.

Food is delicious, and it's local, mostly organic, they serve Ridgerunner coffee, powered by rooftop solar... and no tipping (included in prices). What is there not to love?

Junita Lapp

Fantastic place to eat in Athens! I love the friendly atmosphere and the food is always phenomenal! My favorite thing to get is probably the quiche Lorraine. Super velvety with a buttery flaky crust.

Very friendly service and fair prices. On top of that the food is all fresh made and delicious. Never had a bad breakfast here.

Ingrid L

Truly enjoyable experience. Waiting in line and hoping they don't run out of your favorite item speaks for itself. It's well work the time spent. I hate giving them the 5 star "thumbs up" because I don't want to add you to the line in front of me next time.

Alyssa Stegmaier

Very nice place! Love their food.

Anonymous Reviewer

Prices are high and the WiFi is pretty terrible. Food was ok, but very overpriced.

parthiban rajan

Very nice place for a good Sunday brunch.. but get ready for a long wait for your food

Stephanie knopp

Ate here once. Won't go again. Hot chocolate was nasty, and the food was tasteless and bland. Was really bad, couldn't even finish. Ended up making me sick after a couple bites.

Marley Soluna

Gwen Gerber

Excellent! Excellent! Excellent!

Marlene LAbbe

Julie Garrett

An Athens gem. Delicious baked goods, sandwiches, etc plus art, crafts, wine, cheese and more for sale .... all locally produced and served by people making a living wage. A community hub. And a good place to shop for local treats/souvenirs. We came back a second time for breakfast. Excellent!!!!

Christina Brown

Paul Corbman

Great place for lunch.

Derek Getz

I love this place. It can be rather busy, especially on the weekend, but the food is worth the wait. Whole foods prepared with care. Vegan and vegetarian friendly. I had the AM Scramble, but substituted their specially seasoned tofu for the eggs. Delicious veggies with sweet tofu and a side of polenta. Partner with with a dark roast vanilla soy Cafe au Lait and I was in heaven. They also have a wonderful selection of wines from around the world. Not to be missed.

Nathan Miller

By far the greatest smells I've ever encountered

Crystal Howard

It was our first time and we enjoyed what we got. Just sorry we didn't get to try the quiche.

Morgan Thomas

The breakfast food is fantastic and their beverages are always delicious. However, my friends and I did have to wait for some time for some simple items compared to others with more complicated dishes, so that was a little odd.

Alex Souza

Awesome baked goods and sandwiches. Definitely a must when in Athens.

Kyle Wiggers

Amazing quiche and coffee. Couldn't ask for more.

Mary McKnight

Sergio Zamora

Good place for drinking coffee and eating good dessert

Jim Carlson

Awesome place! Would recommend!

Not sure why we came here after just having brunch... I wanted to try their pastry but was too full to do anything. But I did get an iced latte and it was YUMMY!!

I visited Village Bakery on a Sunday morning for a quick breakfast. Food is good. Nice atmosphere, and a fun brunch place. The menu is small, limited options!!

Love the food and coffee but the atmosphere is truly my favorite. Truly a lunarly owned gem in athens!

Love the bialys here. Other baked goods are yummy, too. Nice for brunch, though I get a little bored with the menu. Not super economical, but no-tipping policy helps.

Brice McQuiniff

Amazing vegan menu. One of my favorite places in Athens

I absolutely LOVE this place! Every cafe I visit gets compared to Village because their coffee and food simply cannot be beat. Every weekend they have delicious brunch specials and fresh baked pastries and sweets! If you're looking for a fantastic local place to grab brunch or your morning coffee, look no further.

Great spot for brunch. Not cheap, but everything is homemade and fresh.

Soad Haddad

Breanna wilson

Eli Karkowski

The price tag comes with a little peace of mind knowing you're supporting small and local business. But the coffee, food, and venue all feel hand crafted by the owners and it makes it a worthwhile stop for any Athens visitors.

Brandon Jaeger

unparalleled dedication to tasty, quality food, sourced from local and sustainable sources.

Jerry Sullivan

My other outlying favorite place to score great coffees and teas, nicely prepared food, good necessities like wine and fresh baked goods. Far enough away from up-town that one can sit on the veranda and see the Westbanhoff in Vienna... :-) Well, ALMOST!!

sudhanva lalit

Amazing ambience and excellent food. A bit pricy for students but worth it.

Betty C Ocker

Jennie Klein

Great baked goods and really great and clean as well as vegan options as well.

Mark Harvey

We enjoyed our time spent at the bakery and café while our EV charged (thank you!!). The interior was eclectic, but charming and full of smiling faces. The pastries we purchased were delicious. Though we didn't look closely, a selection of wine is offered to the left side of the shop and up a stair walks as one walks inside.

Jessica Lynne

Kent Orr

Village Bakery is a decent place to grab a bite. Their coffee is good and I enjoy being able to grab another cup instead of waiting on service. The food is delicious and you feel good knowing it's locally sourced.

Lynn Steffan

We were there when they opened but our food was served lukewarm. The veggie frittata was tasty nonetheless. My DH was disappointed in his egg dish. It was a small serving. We had such a good experience on our first visit but probably won't be back.

Steve Markle

Fresh and delicious food, nice staff, good wine selection.

Horacio Castillo

Edward Lamm

Great staff, friendly service and good food and drinks!

George Stossel

Really good food. Lots of veggie choices.

Kelly Barth

Michael Lorsung

The service is disorganized and slow, I ordered iced coffee and it tasted like watery coffee strained through a dirty sock. Gross.

Chad Guess

Barbara Rondon

The desserts are amazing, so good but I wish in the future they can do salty more breakfast kinda food.

Kieran Delach

Peggy Dalgleish

I absolutely love this place. The food was great, the service was wonderful, & I loved the whole atmosphere of this place. I wish I lived closer so I could go here all the time. Next time I'm in Athens, I'm definitely coming back.

Randy Dearing

Love it and the cookies.

Courtney Burns

We decided to come down to Hocking Hills for our anniversary and since the weather was rather rainy, we ventured into Athens for the morning for breakfast and some antiquing. This little cafe came as a bit of a surprise! The food menu is great, especially for vegetarians. The coffee is great. The fudge brownie was phenomenal, french batard loaf beautiful, and they had quite the selection of wines for purchase. What they stand for is wonderful and right up our alley. Definitely worth a visit and we'll come back again the next time we're down that way.

Ben W.

Great food, really good bread, cool atmosphere with a lending library, beer and wine, too!

Andrea Grimsley

Great place for lunch!

Josey Mager

Cost isn't the greatest on a budget but food and portions are most definitely worth it... so worth it you may go broke because it's very addictive... once you start it's hard to not keep coming back... love the wake up call with eggs and coffee...
