Sip a nice wine, have a nosh, purchase from a fine array of goods. Very relaxing atmosphere--numerous locations.
The sign outside says it is a wine bar, but it is a very good coffee shop. I had a delicious iced latte and a delightful scone. I recommend it.
My colleague and I tried Barriques at the recommendation of my son. This turned out to be a great stop. The coffee was very good but the atmosphere was even better. I was quite impressed with the décor and layout of the place. The interior was two levels with a balcony overlooking a nostalgic first floor. The appearance was almost... More
The coffee is good, the food is OK. But whatever you do, don't go when you are in a hurry! I have been to the Old Sauk location on multiple occasions when it has taken 5+ minutes to get a plain coffee (with less than 3 people in front of me). Very frustrating. Seems to be a lot of staff... More
My husband and I went to Barriques to do some work while visiting family. I was disappointed that they were out of yogurt but the wrap I ordered was delicious as was my mocha! However, I was a little annoyed that there were not more outlets to plug in our computers. Overall, I would come back.

I have no problem with the coffee. Usually very good. But, what is wrong with their staff. I go to either the Middleton shop or the Old Sauk Rd. shop and the staff at both places are unfriendly and taciturn. I know they don't make much but managment can still do things to make the staff customer friendly. I just... More
Barriques is one of the few coffee shops that I go out of the way to spend a morning, afternoon or evening connecting with friends, getting a quick bite, or spending hours working. It has been one of my top hangouts for nearly 8 years. The atmosphere is Barriques best asset. The two-story open loft concept allows for easy people-watching,... More
