Burger was ok-ish, but the Moroccan chicken (slightly spiced rice, tender chicken, mixed olives & feta dip) was so spectacular, we drove out of out way to get it again.

Found the place through a guidebook. Didn't get utensils with take out, had to ask.

Compared to the horrendous food selection in Wisconsin Dells, this was a surprise and a treat. Definitely recommend, and will try to go back to when in the area.

We were travelling with our 2 grandchildren in the Baraboo area. We decided to have an "adult" dinner and the Little Village Cafe looked promising.

The cafe is in an old building and has a counter, booths, and tables. Don't let the counter lead you to believe that this is a diner---the menu and food quality are well above that!

When we arrived, a table for four was not available, so we were seated at the counter and began to study the menu. Before we could order, a table opened up and were moved to it.

There was a good selection of appetizers, salads, entrees, sandwiches, pastas, and burritos. We had pot stickers (good), penne regate 4 cheese, and vegetable, beef, and chicken burritos. Be warned---the burritos are huge! We were glad that our hotel room had a refrigerator as we had the burritos and penne for dinner the next night.

We were way too stuffed to try dessert, but it was homemade and looked great.

This is a great place to get away from the dells, tucked in a Nifty old diner with not so diner like food. everything seems to be home made and cooked with care. It is about the only place to eat in Baraboo where there is any understanding of spices and flavors. They make a cumin sauce for the burritos that is really good and the Goat cheese and sourdough bread is outstanding. I don't know if they make their own bread but is perfect with a nice flaky crust. The desert case is like something you would find in a much larger city. Many choices of wine, full bar. The staff is fast, friendly and competent. Lunches are around 10.00 and dinner is around 10-20. Since I live in the area,I have eaten there many times over the last few years and my only complaint is that the menu rarely changes - not a concern for those just passing through.

We eat at The Village Cafe whenever we are in Baraboo. We love the huge burritos, especially the sirloin beef. They have great salsa and chips and thirst quenching Arnold Palmers that are the best anywhere. Did I mention dessert? Homemade carrot cake is outstanding and all of the other desserts look very appealing. The best part is the friendly welcoming staff.

The Little Village Cafe is located on the corner of the square in downtown Baraboo. Baraboo is a town that time seems to have forgotten, but the Little Village Cafe is not your grandma's cafe. It has a beautiful upscale diner decor with vintage stools and cosy booths. The food is better than most in the area featuring terrific burritos (try the sirloin), excellent pastas, very good soups and desserts, and a decent wine selection. Be sure to pop your head in the Al Ringling Theater next door--voted America's prettiest playhouse for a reason. You won't believe your eyes.
