Barb's Cafe, owned and managed by Barb McDermott, officially opened for business in 1989, and is presently the longest established restaurant in Burwell entering its twelfth year of business.
The emphasis of Barb's Cafe changed shortly after opening from primarily a drive-in to a restaurant with daily lunch and dinner specials and Sunday noon specials. Barb also remodeled the dining area and kitchen to provide a pleasant dining experience for her customers and more efficient service.
The menu at Barb's Cafe varies from standard breakfast and grill items to home-cooked daily specials. Broasted Chicken is a popular menu item as is Mexican Food night and the ever changing daily lunch specials. Barb also offers a children's Power Meal complete with a prize, soft serve ice cream and ice cream specialties, ice cold slushes and frozen yogurt during the summer months. Barb's Cafe also makes deliveries and participates in the meals on wheels program.
Sunday dinner at Barb's Cafe is a Sunday after-church tradition with many families and the broasted chicken and additional Sunday noon special a popular favorite. Thursday night's South of the Border Mexican menu attracts many customers hungry for a change in menu and Wednesday night's Hamburger Special is also popular with the local customers.
In addition to the the food offered at Barb's Cafe, Barb's is a popular "coffee spot" for local residents and many birthdays are celebrated in the dining room of Barb's Cafe.
Barb McDermott has many years of experience in the food service industry and has published her own cookbook with her favorite recipes that are featured at her restraunt. Barb's family and friends have helped out in the restraunt in times of need and Scott Kraus assists Barb in almost every aspect of the business from minor repairs to menu items.
Barb's Cafe is open at 5:30 am Monday thru Saturday and opens at 7:00 am on Sunday. The business is located at 717 G street on the east side of the square in Burwell.
