Bloomington Favorite

Even when the village deli is slammed with customers, they manage to seat us in a timely manner. Our waiter was attentive and helpful, and the food is always good. My favorite is the breakfast burrito. Their pancakes are also pretty popular.

In town for a family wedding. A group of 10 of us went both sat and sun mornings. We were there around 9 am and were seated immediately . Coffee and drinks were flowing immediately and the service both days was great. I was happy with my food and no one had a complaint- and we are eaters! Lots of... More

I went to the Village Deli for breakfast early on a Sunday morning. The place had just opened so the service was quick. Coffee was OK; my 3 egg veggie omelette was very large and filling. I'm not sure I would wait long for a table.

This is the second time we've been. The wait to get a table was only 15 mins but the food took over 30 mins to get after we ordered. It is good but I don't feel it is worth the wait. Service was great. Food was GOOD but it ALWAYS takes so long for the kitchen.

they tell you service is slow, but when they aren't crowded you shouldn't be waiting long. Omelette fair, the pancake was dry. Table was still a bit sticky from earlier customer.

Went there with the wife on Sunday for lunch and they were slammed. I took that as the food was good and I was right. I was starving so I went with the build your own omelette and went crazy. Great food and priced reasonable.

Day 1: had the chorizo breakfast burrito with home fries... Amazing as I remember from last year. Day 2: got the chorizo, bacon, pepper jack omelette and split a lemon poppyseed blueberry pancake with my dad. Both were excellent. Will surely return!

The VD, as some locals refer to it, is a true hometown-delight. We enjoy 'Colossal' Pancakes and sit outside when the weather permits to take in all that is downtown Bloomington. The servers are friendly and the restaurant is very clean. We appreciate how quickly the location was rebuilt after the terrible fire. Stop by for a meal that doesn't... More

I went to breakfast here at 8:30am and we got to sit outside. Usually it takes forever to get a table but if you time it right, you can have a nice view of Kirkwood on a sunny morning. The pancakes are huge and delicious, the home fries and delicious little potato wedges, and the other breakfast food is good.... More
