Description: Batch Bakehouse is a small bakery that specializes in Croissants and classic French Baguette. We bake fresh from scratch every day. Offering a variety of artisanal loaf breads and a wide selection of pastry. Our chefs seem to put something new in the case every day, stop in to see what we've baked today. Our croissant items tend to sell out early, so come early and often to get the best selection; or simply call ahead and we'll hide your order behind the counter.

Amazing bakery. Batch makes the best pastries you can get in Madison -- maybe in Wisonsin (I haven't sampled all of Wisonsin's bakeries). Friendly service, comfortable atmosphere, and most important, delicious food.

Smell of fresh bakery on my way home from work in the morning tends to pull me in. I really don't think you can find better in Madison everything here is delicious, chocolate salted brownie?!?! Amazing!

I am a VERY picky pastry shopper. I bake the best goodies, so most stores don't cut it for me. But Batch impressed me. So happy I had the curiosity to check the tiny shop at the corner of Willy St.... which has now grown up! You make it melt! Congrats!

Wonderful! The food here has a depth of flavor that you don't find anywhere else at many bakeries. The banana muffin is to die for, and I am not usually a muffin person. If you are looking for a place to pick up food to impress others at the office this is one of the places to go! I would... More

Stopped twice during our visits to Madison. The pain au chocolat were quite good as were the almond croissants (though they could use a bit more almond paste). These were some of the best we've had since we lived in Europe. When we are back in town we will stop again.

I just wish this place were a little closer to home. A full service bakery with a cafe on the side. This place has wonderful baked goods. I admit I've always bought to take home and never eaten in. They've got a big schedule posted inside so you can see what to expect when for the basics. The croissants here... More

We get pastries from Batch when we are visiting Madison. The varieties are great, and the quality of the baked goods is top notch. I love anything they make with lemon in it, and the orange flavored pastries are pretty amazing, too. Monkey bread muffins are a must have, and the scones are very good as well. Prices are a... More

I visited this place to bring some goodies to two meetings, and they were definitely goodies. The croissants are the best ones I ever have in Madison. The bakers are not shy to put great ingredients, and I especially love those with almonds and pecans. The ham and gruyere croissants are great with a thick layer of ham, the filled... More
