This walk in, order at the counter, and pick your seating location restaurant was conveniently located next to our hotel in downtown Bloomington. We ate breakfast and lunch at this location and were pleased with the menu and quality of food. All for a reasonable price.

Great menu selection and courteous staff. House made baked goods are very tasty. Sandwiches that we had were delicious. The pork green chili was absolutely amazing. Great location is a plus also. Will definitely return.

Great spot to add some tasty calories with your morning coffee. Did not have a full meal, but have been told their kitchen is very reliable.

Great baked goods and freshly prepared dishes, either to go or with counter service. Good juice and coffee. A very homey feel, complete with a gigantic railway clock/ A good breakfast in downtown Bloomington.

Took my son and his 2 roommates to the Sunday brunch. The baked goods were out of this world. We all had different eggs Benedict combinations and the food was superb We sat outside which was really nice. Service was great and prices are ridiculously reasonable for the quality of food. Don't miss out on this one.

The baked goods here are truly underwhelming. They look delicious but I'm consistently disappointed with the taste. Maybe for those who don't bake at home it's a nice treat, but not for me.

I visited this restaurant with my daughter who will soon be living less than a block away. We stopped in for breakfast. Excellent blueberry pancakes and superb coffee. They say their bread is the "best in the world" . . . but I am still working to confirm this. I will say it is quite good. When I return I... More

I like the East Third St. locastion of this restaurant, instead of the N. College one, because parking is free and it has a lovely fireplace. The food is good with a lot of selections but the service is often slow. Also, they used to have other choices for sides - such as mandarin oranges. But now you can only... More

Great breakfast place. From egg sandwiches to scones to bagels, everything was delicious. Lovely gourmet teas. Hot or iced coffee. We were visiting IU and we went to the Bakehouse a few times for breakfast, afternoon coffee. Steady crowd. Always clean, welcoming and delicious. I plan to return to the Bakehouse.

The pumpkin cream cheese muffins are worth the trip, but everything I've had there was impressive. The coffee I had was a touch over-roasted, but this is a definite visit when I'm in town.
