Coffee Hound serves up consistently delicious drinks and treats in two cozy settings (downtown Bloomington and Uptown Normal). Their coffees are strong but not bitter. I'm partial to the look of the Bloomington location, and it's a good stop on Farmer's Market Saturdays.

We are regulars at "the hound." We are huge coffee snobs and even purchase our beans from them! The red dog blend is our personal favorite. We love their teas, their coffees and they usually have a nice variety of baked goods. My husband loves the house cortado, served with mineral water. The ambiance is great...sometimes quite stuffy and overcrowded... More

I'm a coffee snob. I like the real deal, not foo foo coffee laden with chocolate syrup and sugar. The Cappuccino at the Coffee Hound is one of my favorites. The atmosphere is comfortable and the treats are delicious. Try the made-in-house granola. YUM. My only small gripe is that they are not open late enough on weekdays (6 pm).... More

Great choices of teas and coffees, nice atmosphere and some tasty (not healthy) pastry/muffin items.

This is a great place to stop in for fresh, craft roasted coffee and snacks. The iced coffee was great, and so were the scones. Perfect little pick me up location. Great, friendly staff, too.

I am writing this review from Cuenca, Ecuador where I am spending some time with family and friends. Coffee here is good, but I miss my coffeehound lattes. For me, coffee is one of those food items that is connected to home. I grew up drinking coffee that was picked from our small yard and freshly roasted by my Abuelita.... More

My husband and I visit family in Bloomington-Normal a few times a year, and we always make sure we have time for a stop at Coffee Hound. Their coffee is absolutely top-notch. My favorite is the iced hazelnut latte; my husband's favorite is the regular latte. Whatever you order, you won't be disappointed!
