Best breakfast/brunch ever! Let me tell you, you need to go here for breakfast! Had the smoked salmon benedict with a decaf coffee, fresh fruit, and potatoes. The portion sizes were plentiful.

Everytime I come here I wonder why I ever go anywhere else.. The portions are huge... Big enough to split!!! The quality is top notch and the service and the atmosphere is laid back and fun!!! $15 bill for two and it was more than we could finish!!!! Just can't say enough good bout the spoon!!!

Famous for their breakfast and rightly so. Good solid cooking with some local touches. They have been in the same location for many years and pouplar with locals and visitors to IU. Very crowded on weekends so expect a wait unless you get there early. Dinner not so crowded.

The Runcible Spoon, known to locals as either Runcible or "the Spoon," is a low-key, relaxing place for a meal, a quiet cup of afternoon coffee, or a heart-to-heart with a friend.

I was in Bloomington several years ago on a business trip, and I stumbled across the Runcible Spoon Cafe. It was such a wonderful experience that I ended up eating there every day for the remainder of my trip. The food was great, the prices very reasonable, and the atmosphere was so comfortable that I felt like I was visiting... More

We enjoyed breakfast at the runcible spoon and it was great! I liked the set up of the restaurant mad the charm that it had. The food was great, a bit spendy for the amount you got but still good tasting. Mimosas were fabulous and we will be heading back soon!!

Loved to food! Omelet with roast beef is excellent! Chocolate chip pancakes are wonderful too! So, why 4 stars? Slow service... It took us 35 minutes to get omelets and pancakes... Really guys? 35 minutes for breakfast?

Really, really good food prepared fresh in the kitchen. Sandwiches are immense and large enough to share. Can't wait to go back.
