After waiting 10 minutes and being told our server would be right with us, it was another 5 minutes before he appeared. We never saw him again for a coffee refill, ask how the food was, or to collect the money which I had to take to one of the other waiters. This used to be an excellent place in... More

Our family ate at the Village Deli on Mother's Day morning and the place was packed! We were seated promptly but took over 40 minutes to receive our food. Our daughters had pancakes and french toast w/ fruit and my husband had a waffle. All were pleased with their choice. I had an omelette which wasn't as impressive: it was... More

Village Deli used to be my must have meal when I was in Bloomington but after the last visit, I'm not sure I'll ever go back. My family and I went in for lunch and out of the 5 of us, 3 didn't care for our food. The food just wasn't as good as it usually is and the chicken... More

My family stopped by the Village Deli for breakfast last week. There were plenty of tables available, and you seat yourself. The menu has many breakfast choices. Everyone in my party had something different and everyone was quite pleased with the quality & portions of food. The pancakes are huge! I have never seen one so large. I had the... More

I see why this is so popular with IU students ... Great food at a great price. I have had an omelette and pancakes here and both are outstanding. One warning ... a single pancake is huge.

Been eating here now for 4 years. Village Deli food is always good, just service and food coming out is always is slow and lacking. I don't care if you have students working your establishment, no excuse for poor service.

We were lucky to eat here on one of the rare, really warm days in Bloomington, in February, which allowed us to eat outside and watch the fun on one of the main drags, just outside the IU campus. Half of us wanted breakfast, and half wanted lunch do the Deli worked well. They have a pancake that is actually... More

We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast of pancakes and omelets. I had the fall special--pumpkin pancakes. They came with pumpkin butter, which was delicious! It's very busy on Saturdays--popular with the college crowd--so it's no wonder the waitstaff's shirts say, "Eat and Get Out!" We received prompt, courteous service though, so overall, it's worth dealing with the crowd.

Have eaten here many times. Normally get good service and food but not this time. Hostess had an attitude when we said no to sitting outside. Could have used drink refills but server didn't check back. Seemed like they wanted us to get in and get out. Food was average. Have had better food in past.
