Don’t Just Take Our Word For It

The Village Café has been a quick hit with Woodside residents and Aiken locals alike since its opening; however, that popularity has skyrocketed following a rave review from popular culinary guide!   Read on for more information on this eclectic review site, and for their thoughts on Woodside’s newest restaurant.


“Roadfood means great regional meals along highways, in small towns and in city neighborhoods. It is sleeves-up fare made by cooks, bakers, pitmasters, and sandwich-makers who are America’s culinary folk artists.

Roadfood restaurants are almost always casual and affordable. They are diners, small-town cafes, seaside shacks, drive-ins, barbecues, and bake shops. The best of them are colorful places enjoyed by locals (and savvy travelers) for their character as well as their menu.

It is our intention that Roadfood lead the way to:

  • great local color
  • the best regional specialties
  • unforgettable meals that are the highlights of the trip”

“Just outside an entrance to the plush gated community of Woodside, The Village Café is a casual restaurant that is anything but casual about what it serves. Here is some very interesting food. The sandwich selection, for example, includes not just a regular BLT, but a smoked salmon BLT. Silky ribbons of tender pink Norwegian salmon are added to the winning combo of bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise (lemon-dill mayo) and served on multi-grain toast. Luxury incarnate!”

“Sophisticated as the food is at The Village Café, its way of doing business is country-casual. Place your order and pay at the counter, where you are given a number to take to a table or to a sunny counter seat by the window to which staff brings the meal.”
