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.

We arrived in Madison more towards the noon hour on Sunday. This bakery has a wonderful, huge very appetizing selection of breads and pastries. It was kind of tough to make our selection, but we did. We loved the gingerbread muffin..molasses sweet with a lemon glaze and also a pocket with spinach, cheese and bacon. Unfortunately, many things were gone.... More

This was our first visit. They have a large variety of items and a nice little area to eat outdoors. We tried several different items and all agreed that the Vanilla Swirl was the best. The items are about $3.00 a piece.

Went here on a Saturday afternoon for coffee and a cake. Good selection on offer. We choose the apple cake which was amazing. Had a coffee with it which was also quick good. (It's from a dispenser though)

Offerings change daily, so you cannot count on the same items being offered day-to-day. Recently had great savory: Carmelized onion-walnut-cheese strudel made with croissant dough; mini-quiches with veggies and bacon or andouille sausage; croissants with cheese or cheese and ham. Wish they used mushrooms and spinach more often as fillings, but when they do the results are delectable. Recent sweets:... More

Love this neighborhood. Excellent Bakery. I had a ham and Gruyere croissant- great! Pineapple coconut scone- so good. Chocolate croissant- wish I had bought half a dozen. Very enjoyable.

I have a huge sweet tooth, and this place does the job. They have fresh, home-style baked goods, with a sophisticated twist. Some of my favorite items are the caramel salted brownie, the gallette (when they have it,) and their pretzels...yes, fresh pretzels! There are way, way too many good options to mention. They also have great mini-quiches. Though I'm... More

I stopped in twice on a recent visit to Madison. Croissants are perfect, and the savory filled rolls are a nice alternative to sweet breakfast pastries. A slice of still-warm apple strudel really hit the spot this past cold, dreary weekend. Staff is super friendly, and the nice long counters along the windows are a good place to sit and... More

Stopped by during the week and got a raspberry lemon cream cheese galette and two salted caramel brownies. The galette was awesome for my late breakfast. I just wished I had a bit of coffee to go with it. The brownies my husband and I had for dessert later that evening. I’m kinda a brownie snob and these were amazing.... More

I stopped by Batch Bakehouse looking for cake. I tried the lemon pound cake and the gingerbread muffin. The pound cake was moist, not overly dense, with a wonderful lemon glaze. The gingerbread muffing was the best muffin I've ever had! It's subtle spice and sweet glaze are perfect. There's real ginger in the muffin! The muffin is moist and... More

Thank you for your review. I am so glad you enjoyed your bakery, we are proud of what we bake at Batch Bakehouse. The gingerbread muffin is seasonal... so you won't see it once it's hot outside. No worries, though... there are plenty of amazing summer seasonals too! More
