Barnaby's Cafe

The original Barnaby's, on Fairview, is a homey Montrose mainstay, and much more eclectic-feeling than its four siblings (River Oaks, Midtown, Woodway and the new Market Square location downtown). The American food is the same as the other Barnaby's outposts, though, with interesting twists on traditional sandwiches and salads: pesto chicken sandwich with artichoke hearts, the turkey breast with cranberry mayo, blue-cheese fondue waffle fries, the buffalo burger, and more. (You can still get a regular beef burger or a piece of grilled salmon, of course.) Breakfast and bunch draw long lines at the “Baby Barnaby’s” expansion attached to the main restaurant, which serves only lunch and dinner.
