Great crepes, right off the square

First off, the place is a tiny triangle. Seating is extremely limited, so it's not a great place to linger at busy times. However, if you're eating, you should be able to squeeze in somewhere by the time your crepes are ready (service isn't super speedy). Coffee wise, I was disappointed (iced... read more

We came into Madison to celebrate our anniversary in a fun town. Bradbury's was a really great start to our day. Excellent service, attention to detail, fun, funky, hipster joint. I enjoyed a latte and crepe with peppers, eggplant, kale, squash, egg, and mushrooms and aioli, I was full afterwards for sure!

This is a tiny place, full of great atmosphere. Nice coffee, nice staff. Nice place to grab some breakfast. Highly recommended.

I came to know of this place based purely on the reviews of this site and others. What I imagined and what I encountered were completely in combat with one another. This place is so small (how small is it?) this place is so small that while waiting for your order to have to dodge staff and patrons; no place... More

I and my friend visited Madison for farmers market. As we wanted to have a good dish at the restaurant, we went to Bradbury's. Crepes were so savory and very fresh!!! I really enjoyed full of taste of the earth!

Best coffee! The latte was delicious -- immediately wanted another. We had a variety of sweet and savory crepes -- all of them very good. The only negative was how tiny the place is -- about 20-25 people can fit if squished together, but everyone was nice and made room.

The place is small but wasn't crowded when we arrived. Lots of information on the food and it's local sources on the blackboards on the walls. Which was good because very little information came voluntarily from the man who waited on us. We got coffee, juice and a scone plus the ham/gouda crepes. All were excellent. The coffee was the...

Excellent breakfast spot .. Great coffee, even better crepes . The menu is kept to a small amount of items, nothing daunting and expansive- allowing them to create a delicious array.. We had a ham and Gouda with fresh mustard crepe, as well as fresh peach. The atmosphere is small, quaint but inviting and relaxing . We will go back... More

Bradbury's cafe is not the type of place that you want to pop in for a quick coffee or a crepe on the run. It's a delightful space, friendly staff, good quality food and drinks, but they are not going to win any races soon. I ordered a latte and a crepe. The latte only took about 5 minutes, but... More

it's very small, so you will be sitting with someone else and the lines can get long. but it is definitely worth the wait! the coffee is great (i always get the mocha and it's amazing) and the crepes are fabulous. i lived in france for 2 years and can be a bit of a snob, but these crepes lived...
