This is a nice place. Food a little over cooked but you get real hungry up here in the mountains and it tasted real good to me. Coffee was very good. Thanks to these people for having a place for us to eat without driving the slow winding road 26 miles back down the mountain. Very friendly people.

We visited The Barn Cafe when my husband was getting scuba diving certified. Ate breakfast there 2 times. Staff extremely friendly and food was great and the prices were even better! I would recommend a visit if you are driving through!!

We love the Barn Cafe. Food is home-made and tastes great. Prices are very reasonable. The atmosphere, although, not fancy, is warm and welcoming. It's so convenient for those visiting or living in Oakland, Arkansas.

I went with friends and family from out of town and i gotta say,This is what makes a small town so appealing. Nothing over the top,just basic , down home meals at a fair price in an atmosphere you rarely find anywhere. I will continue to recommend this place to anyone heading out to Oakland,AR. :)

If you haven't been to the Barn Cafe since winter 2007, you owe it to yourself to stop and meet the new owners, and get a bite to eat. Daily breakfast and lunch specials on top of the standard menu items, generous portions, excellent value - and the bonus is the pleasant atmosphere, friendly, genuine glad to see you greetings....
