Quaint, good food and drinks, very slow service.

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... read 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

Wow. That's what you'll say after you experience Bradbury's. My fiancee loves the coffee here, but I am such a fan of their crepes, which are very original. They kept changing their savory crepe menu, so I had to keep going back to try them. But the sweet crepes remained relatively constant. I can't give any recommendations here because all... More

Bradbury's may be small, but it packs a punch. The macchiatos and cappuccinos are consistently excellent and the crepes delicious. When you stop in you'll see they have a limited menu, but that is the beauty of Bradbury's; what they do, they do very well. The vibe and size may not be everybody's cup of tea, but I highly recommend... More

Good coffee. Nice options of either savory or sweet crepes. Service is a little slow - but quality is not fast food!
