Okay for fast food. Don't expect more.

You can get served decent food quickly. I guess I expected more than a Panera knockoff. If you like Panera then you will love this place. Good average comfort food.

We often go to Scholar's Inn East for Sunday breakfast, mainly to meet friends who go there routinely. Ordinarily, the food is acceptable, although not outstanding. Today we decided to try a bagel (Jalapeño-cheddar). Not toasted, no schmear. It was hard and dry; hardly edible. There are many places in Bloomington with good bagels; avoid Scholar's Inn, or at least... More

Looking for great tasting, healthy food prepared quickly? This is your place. I have eaten breakfast and lunch here and both times my food was delicious and delivered to our table in no time. You order and pay at a cashier and then they bring food to your table, so if you want to be waited on start to finish... More

My son and I visited Scholar's for Brunch on Sunday morning of Parents Weekend at Indiana University. The restaurant is located in an old Victorian house that is beautiful. The wait staff is excellent in that they are very attentive and make sure to get your order correct. I would order the Pastry Basket to begin. You can get either... More

What an absolute shame. Great location, nice decor and environment. But, the granola berry oatmeal they served me was an embarrassment. The berries amounted to 2 strawberry halves. The granola...half a tablespoon thrown on top. The oatmeal itself was no better; cold, yet undercooked and dry. Really, how do you mess up oatmeal this bad??!! Do yourself a favor and... More

Assorted menu of breakfast items to choose from. Order at counter, then they bring your meal to your table. Great granola!

Loved the potatoes, just the right flavor, done ness, and salt. The bacon egg cheese sandwich was good, but could have been bigger. The chocolate chip cookie was good also.

I was staying at the Hilton Garden Inn just next door and wanted a home style meal and glass of wine without having to venture too far and this was just the place! I enjoyed my tomato and mozzarella sandwich on crispy French bread and delicious home made Mac n Cheese! Yum! The desserts and pastries looked delicious but I... More

Outstanding breakfast! We were here on a Sunday morning and just had a great meal. People in our group had ordered the french toast (I definitely recommend this and will order this next time) a bagel with cream cheese and eggs, and I had the scrambled eggs with hash browns and toast. We were all very happy with our meals... More
