Great choice of baked goods. Excellent staff. Clean & pleasant environment. Almost every item is available in individual-sized portions. The finest "snacks" available in a very large geographical area..the USA?

I have to stay away because I'd never stop eating their baguettes and pastry. It's a great stop in a neighborhood with lots of great stops. Haven't had a thing there that wasn't wonderful~

Great bread, great croissants, great sweets, pies, etc.. The worst part of the experience is having to choose what to have..

Is a double edged sword. I want to eat a blueberry lemon baby every day of my life, but don't want to get diabetes. They also do these cake plug things, which are layered chocolate cake and fluffy moussey goodness. They're not there all the time, but if you see them you better snag one or you'll be sorry.

Everything we had was absolutely scrumptious. The bread was crispy yet soft on the inside. The pain au chocolate/ fromage was amazing. And the scones are one of the best I've ever had, maybe even better than the ones at the McFarland House Cafe.it may be a bit expensive, but definitely worth it.

If you enjoy delicious baked sweets you need to try Batch. You will probably visit more than once. Friendly staff and a nice selection. There bread makes a great grilled cheese and toast.

It's sitting outside on the sidewalk of this fantastic bakery. Today it was filled with Christmas ornaments, but I'm told it is a flower planter in the summer. Inside, cases and cases of pastries all of which looked too good to eat! Purchased a rosemary focaccia round and a baguette. So fresh - good thing I don't live in Madison... More

Swilican: Thank you for your review. The mixer is indeed a planter in the summer months, and we have outdoor seating too. We hope you visit Madison again and come back soon. Happy Travels, Susan More

There's a lot of competition if you are running a bakery on Williamson St., and I'm afraid that Batch is one of the worst. Don't be fooled by appearances - they don't know how to make bread properly. Their baguette, for example, tastes like a large breadstick. Their croissants are also not bakery quality. You are much better off going... More

Description
Batch Bakehouse is a small bakery that specializes in Croissants and classic French Baguette. We bake fresh from scratch every day. Offering a variety of artisanal loaf breads and a wide selection of pastry. Our chefs seem to put something new in the case every day, stop in to see what we've baked today. Our croissant items tend to sell out early, so come early and often to get the best selection; or simply call ahead and we'll hide your order behind the counter.
