Went on a weekday and there was no wait. Generous portions, no nonsense breakfast! Waiter was friendly, breakfast came out quickly and food was good.

The food was amazing and beware the portions sizes are ginormous! The pancakes were super light and fluffy. I had the bagel with egg and it was comparable to a New York style bagel. We waited about 45 minutes for a table but it was peak brunch hour so we understood. Finally they did seat is and it took another... More

The Huevos Rancheros were fabulous! Be sure to get the Cinnamon Roll Pancake. They are HUGE; you might have to take most of it home to enjoy later, as I did. Service was excellent, in spite of being very busy. I will be back!

After an easy walk from IU, we had breakfast here on a Saturday morning upon the recommendation of a local. We had to wait a short time--10-20 minutes--which seemed to be the norm at this busy place. The breakfast menu is good--standard breakfast fare plus some house specialties that looked really good. The service is friendly and the food good.... More

The Village Deli is just a super nice place to have a great breakfast. If their lunches are as good, don't miss out. Fast service, good food, smiling workers are just a couple of reasons to eat here. Very busy - a great sign!!

Went to establishment on Sunday morning following a wedding the evening previous. A hot summer morning, not surprised by a wait for a larger party. What was unexpected was being asked to move away from the door "...because we were hurting business since our lingering by the door made it look like the wait was too long". The restaurant was...

It's okay, but JUST okay. Uncomfortable booth. Lackluster service. So-so food (Skip the bagels, blech). They need to make stronger coffee. Cute shirts though.

Every time I have visitors from out of town, I make sure to take them to Village Deli for breakfast. They are always extremely pleased with the experience! The Deli has been voted best breakfast in Bloomington over and over for a reason. On weekends especially, you can expect to wait for a table, but it's worth it! I also... More

Nice, clean restaurant. Some unique breakfast selections available to you versus the normal eggs, meat & bread options. We had The Hoosier; it was okay.

My husband and I were in town for 1 night and decided on Village Inn for breakfast. Even though there was plenty of seating in the restaurant, we were given a table in an area of the restaurant that was secluded from the others dining. We quickly realized we were seated right outside of the restroom. The one restroom was... More
