Tiny spot for coffee and crepes

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...

Everything is done as it should be. This is my favorite restaurant in Madison by far. The crepe are reasonably priced and are very filling with amazing flavors that pop. If you enjoy crepes or coffee of any sort, stop in. If you are lucky you might even catch them when they have some more unusual crepe fillings, like lamb.

Food and service - good Tight seating in very small space - bad They were steady busy during the Saturday morning we were there so if business is similarly good during the week I'd be looking into a bigger space because the food and pricing is good

Gorgeous ambiance of glass and light. Wonderful crepes (and you can order eggs on the side). Attentive service. Good coffee. What a wonderful choice for breakfast. Yes, it is the place on the triangle corner.

This cafe is small but mighty! Great crepes and delicious coffees and pastry. You can tell all is homemade and organic when possible. Small eatery and the staff were a bit tight lipped but I would highly recommend Bradbury's. Get there early if you want muffins or scones - they sell out fast.

Service was great. They were very helpful with coffee suggestions. We both had the Kale, cherry tomatoes, corn frying peppers and mozzarella crepe loaded with veggies. The dark chocolate and raspberry crepe we split - heavenly. The combined flavors of chocolate, raspberry and homemade whipped cream were perfectly balanced. Sweet but not too sweet. Great meal that made it worth... More
