We were looking for cupcakes, but Gluten Free and Vegan. Bloom Bake Shop is a cute little bakery shop who bake beautiful and really tasty cupcakes. We were amazed how good they were, and we did try a lot of them on our first visit. It will definitely not be our last, we will come back soon. Plus the location... More

This is a charming bakery in downtown Middleton, and they cater to people who want specialty treats such as gluten free and vegan products. There are lots of items to choose from, and they are all made with top shelf ingredients. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Be prepared: the prices are shockingly high. On the other hand, you are... More

This place is one that I will definitely return to and make sure that if I am ever in Middleton I visit every day. The bakers spend so much time creating and mastering their baked goods you can taste it in every bite! I came here on an off chance we had some time between national track meet events for... More

I am amazed by the quality, taste and visual appeal of the vegan gluten free cake. We had a party 50. The cake was beautiful and the taste was amazing. Our guests did not know the cake was gluten free and vegan and commented on how delicious it was.

Yes, we all know that Bloom is the best choice in Madison for cupcakes. I've recently learned that their biscuits are phenomenal. I have no idea how they make them, but they are absolutely worth it. Try one with honey and butter. Sublime!

This was such a wonderful experience ! I am a vegan who does not have the opportunity to eat many gourmet treats. While in Madison for work I made a point to stop and get some treats to enjoy during my trip. The baker who was working was really kind and made great recommendations, because sadly you can buy and... More

The bakers take local ingredients and create wonderful treats. They also create the best gluten free and vegan treats I have been able to find in Wisconsin.

Bloom is the neighborhood bakery you imagine a hipster little red riding hood buys all her treats for Granny. The store is adorable. The treats are pretty. (Check out their wedding cakes). However, I must be missing the chemicals because most of the treats aren't quite as amazing as I hope they will be. At $2.50 for a cookie (sorry,... More

We enjoyed a few handmade delectable goodies on a recent summer visit. The doughnut, cupcake, and pastry that we sampled were delicious. You'll find what I would consider unique offerings not found in mainstream bakeries. The food is made with care and attention to detail. We noticed a baker mixing dough and proofing a few loaves.

Bloom is located in downtown Middleton not Madison. The caramel brownie and cupcake were heavenly. Decadent, moist and prepared with care and love. Local ingredients when possible and vegan and gluten free options. Best cupcake we have had in the Madison area. Connected to a charming novelty shop. Only one small table inside.
