Worthwhile Splurge

Whenever visiting the Madison area I somehow end up stopping by Bloom. It's great to have a small shop where you can get great vegan baked goods. They taste great and the staff is really friendly.

DOS: All the time! (Okay... not all the time... more like once every couple of weeks.) First of all, HOW is it that I haven't reviewed Bloom yet? I'm not sure, but seriously, I LOVE walking into Bloom to peruse the case (full of delicious forbidden gluten on the right, minus delicious forbidden gluten on the left) because I never... More

Ordered a two tier, gluten free birthday cake for mother in law. Well done, great tasting, and beautifully decorated.

The first time I saw Bloom I thought it was just so cute I had to go in. Imagine my surprise when the cupcakes were vegan and gluten free. I almost walked out fearing they would be expensive and taste like cardboard. I'm glad I stayed. The cupcakes were moist and flavorful. They also had unique flavor combinations that did... More

Great baked goods, but way overpriced. This is middleton, not downtown Chicago. If they lower their prices, I'd give them 4 stars.

Best cupcakes in town. #1 is salted caramel cupcake! Melts in your mouth. #2 is latte. Closed on Mondays, I think...always seen to run into that. Nice to pair with a relaxing visit to the library. Nice staff...good values to the local business.

At our office, we call the owner of Bloom the "Cupcake Fairy." We cannot figure out how she stays so petite with all of the delicious sweetness around her 24/7. Plus, the cupcakes are pretty much magical. Haven't had a disappointing flavor yet. We go to Bloom whenever we need a treat in the office, and my husband I go... More

They do have a wide variety of cupcakes but are priced too high for their size. You can make ones just as good for a fraction of the price.

My Chocolate S'more Brownie was awesome. It was finger lick ‘in good. My wife enjoyed her cupcake as well. And then there was the great cup of French press coffee that we each had. Things may seem pricey until you eat and drink. Add to that the smiling faces on all the friendly people working here added a finishing touch... More
