Went on a Sunday morning and even though it was busy was seated in less than 5 minutes. We ate downstairs. The blueberry pancakes were superb. A cute place.

I was traveling for work and was looking for somewhere different for dinner. I was really happy with this choice. It is kind of tucked in a residential neighborhood. Very cozy with a nice little patio. The service was very good as was my dinner. I wish I had brought my laptop so I could have stayed and worked for... More

Very busy and popular place on a Saturday late afternoon. We got seated immediately and served water, then our waiter was nowhere to be found. After about 15 minutes of waiting, we finally asked someone who was our waiter. Someone finally took our order. We enjoyed our food - corn beef hash and french toast, and the chai was yummy....

We had an enjoyable breakfast in the downstairs of this popular spot. We all enjoyed our meals. The hot chocolate was splendid.

The Runcible Spoon has been in Bloomington as long as I can remember, and that is a LONG time. It's two blocks from Kirkwood Avenue where most everything happens downtown, but the atmosphere is quiet and cerebral.

Stopped by on my Saturday night sampling of Bloomington cuisine. Decided on the medallions partnered with the house Pinot Noir. The pairing worked very well. The medallions had a nice peppery twinge to them. The accompanying vegetables and mashed potatoes worked well together. The service was a bit more spotty for as lightly attended as the restaurant was, but I... More

Had our first breakfast at Runcible Spoon this week. We found the food to be very good, and the service to be top notch. There are patio tables in front and back of the restaurant, and no wait to be seated on this (Tuesday) morning - we were told to look around and find the table we would like, which... More

I stopped in town to visit friends mostly who don't know one another. I had 3 separate meetings, and to a man, when trying to determine where to meet, each one said, "Have you heard of Runcible Spoon?" By the third person, I had to laugh. But it really is a great place to eat, especially for breakfast. The homemade... More
