HORRIABLE service I been coming there for years go in see a girl (dawngraves)that's worked there for years in and out rehab falling asleep taking orders. Slurring her words very unacceptable. I let her take my order anyway she messed it all up. I had...regular coffee I got given decaf then I got gave some carrot cake looking cupcake instead of what I ordered choc choc cupcake. I come here all the time service has never been so awful. My friends were there too I'm sure they'll be saying more. Have a great day.More

I chose a blueberry cupcake from the case. They had about 8 flavors available when I was there. It was a good cupcake. It was a little crumbly and messy. I did not eat it until the next day. Uncertain if thay had anything to...do with it. They also serve coffee and sandwiches and other light items. I did not have any of those. There is also an area with seating.More

I have yet to find better cupcakes in Bloomington. Standard flavors offered daily, specials change so look at the menu or contact them. Friendly staff. Lunch offerings are delicious.

I've eaten lunch here two times so far. Their salad and half sandwich is just the right amount of food. The apple gouda salad has generous portions of cheese and fruit. They have option of gluten free bread for sandwiches. The pesto chicken the second...visit was very good. Worth repeat visits.More

This little place was practically unknown until someone brought their cupcakes to a club meeting! WOW! What a treat. We now have gone to their cafe often and have held other club meetings there. Delightful, friendly, homey, delicious and fun!!

I love their cupcakes, but their regular food is also great. My favorite is the Apple Gouda Salad. Check out the Soup Stash, which lets you bring home yesterday’s soup at a reduced price. There’s always something interesting. They have a coffee counter and breakfast...items I’ve never tried. The ambiance is nothing special. You order at a counter and bus your own table. The lines can be long, especially if you’re stuck behind people trying to choose cupcakes.More

Underground Cupcakes is just down the sidewalk from Urban Air at the eastern edge of Elletsville. I would call it a 'girly place'. Very clean, cheerful and no icky, greasy food. Orders are placed at the counter and brought to the table. There is a...coffee bar. The sandwiches are unique, yummy and healthy. The cupcakes are wonderful and come in flavors I did not expect - snickerdoodle, persimmon, tiramisu, etc. Try Underground Cupcakes and your tastebuds will thank you!More

My daughter is GF and they have things already made up for people with allergies. The cupcakes were delicious! Cute and open dining area too.

This was my first visit to Underground Cupcakes & Cafe, but it won't be my last. My sandwich was delicious. I'm anxious to try other sandwiches and soups! We had to leave for an appointment, so I wasn't able to try a cupcake, however, they...looked fantastic in the display case!More
