Drove from Evansville IN to get Rubin sandwich. Was very busy. Took over half hour to get served. The corned beef flavor is fantastic but the meat wasn't cut properly and had lots of gristle. Complained to Manager he was very friendly and got me another sandwich that has to have been one of the most flavorful Ruben Sandwiches I've... More

Generally a long wait, but worth it - traditional breakfast offerings as well as some specials. Attentive service in a nice, bright atmosphere.

Nothing like having the ability to have breakfast any time. Good service and wonderful food. Worth the wait during the weekend. I will be back soon.

We took two grandchildren to this restaurant and they loved it. One had the huge pancake and the other had a couple eggs and the Paxton potatoes. She really liked the potatoes. This is a super place to take the family no matter what the age.

After a night out this was a great place to regroup. Every detail is attended to without pretense, just quality. The highlights were the sausage links and the potatoes.

Sunday morning for brunch at The Village Deli was well worth the 30 minute wait during which we took a brisk walk up the street to the beautiful Indiana University campus. We returned ready to enjoy a wide variety of menu choices including their outstanding omelettes and their delicious colossal cinnamon roll pancake. We will be back! cinnamon

I'll admit, I've only been to Village Deli for breakfast and it's always really good! Pancakes bigger than your plate and a really good 2-egg meal. Highly recommend!

The most important thing is that this is a diner not a deli. The atmosphere is a great mix of college students and faculty and families, plus tourists. The diner rates with a good local diner in any major city, and is easily the best in Bloomington. I had a spinach omelette, others had the breakfast burrito and eggs Benedict.... More

Mornings are rough here thanks to the over abundance of students on the weekend but the breakfast is all day. The pancakes are as big or bigger than your face, unless you haven't eaten all day just get one and some bacon. It can be hard to grab a servers attention some time for refills or to take your order... More
