Spinach omelette was good but would be great if spinach cooked more

They had some good inexpensive breakfast choices including breakfast sandwiches for $3.99. I had a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich one day and a spinach omelette the next day. The eggs in the sandwich weren't that great but the omelette was fluffy and good. The spinach was leafy and pretty, but... read more

Like its other location near the mall, this Scholars Inn has great desserts and fine food and very bitter coffee. It is a great place to meet friends and hang out if you can get a table (East location is easier to find tables at). Outside seating here as well on the square can be nice.

This has a look a feel similar to a Panera Bread, but it is not a chain. All the eats are made right on site and the food is fresh and great. Sandwiches are very generous, so you can probably get buy with a half order. The wait staff is excellent, the place is clean and well maintained and from... More

The food is average. You can find a lot better food in Bloomington for the same price. I do enjoy their wine by the glass in the afternoons.

Very disappointed with the service. And the oatmeal was basically inedible. You have to be pretty bad to screw up oatmeal. The bagel was good however. My wife had a scramble and it was good. So don't go with high expectations.

The salads at the café were wonderful. The selection is broad and the Rocket salad had a fantastic flavor profile that would be at home in a fine dining restaurant. The casual student atmosphere and very good, modestly priced food makes this an excellent mid day choice.

Went here with family and friends one morning. Cozy, casual atmosphere with well priced and pretty good breakfast. Lots of options, so there was something for everyone. Nice location downtown, so you can walk around afterwards once the stores open.

Great place for breakfast or lunch. The food is tasty and felt home cooked. The espresso-related coffee drinks are made well.

Two locations - one downtown and one by College Mall. Both easily reached by bus. Lot with free parking at College Mall location. Eat in or take out. Tasty coffee shop American staples. We love to treat ourselves to breakfast there.

This place was absolutely delicious. My mother was slightly disappointed in the cranberry turkey sandwich but loved her cream of spinach and mushroom soup. I had the best macaroni and cheese and we ended with a delicious, beautiful carrot cake cupcake. Absolutely will come again!
