“Try the Bub Holes!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

I have eaten there many times. LOVE the cozy and funky atmosphere. Good food, cool vibe, reasonable prices. Other than the wait on weekends, what's not to like?

“Love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

Nice quaint little place and the food is fabulous. I only wish it was bigger. The wait is always a few minutes bit the wait is worth it. This is really the only place I love to get breakfast anymore.

“Great Breakfast Location and Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

We were in town for a wedding and referred to Bub's by some locals. This is a great place for breakfast. Large portions and great staff. There is another Bub's location in the Art District of Carmel that is also great. The place is a bit small, so you may have to wait for a table, but it is worth the wait. They offer many specialties for breakfast along with Mimosa's and Sangria. Try the breakfast bowl.....crazy sourdough bowl carved out with meat choice, potatoes, gravy and topped with eggs.....crazy good. They also have a 12 stack of pancakes if you want to go crazy! I'll be back for sure!

“Great burger”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2012

Always a great burger or hot dog. I eat usually after the lunch rush on a week days. No lines and great service. It is a bit loud inside,

“Interesting, quaint, different. Food's decent.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2012

Again found ourselves in Indiana’s ‘Car-mel′ by the Cornfields’ needing eats.
Quick check of i-Pad found this place.
A pleasant and attractive way-station along the Monon Trail. Colorful to attract attention from that venue. Otherwise a bit off the beaten path with a pretty small parking lot – not to worry, plenty of street parking in the immediate area.
Creative (my critical requirement) menu includes breakfast and lunch only. Lists the old standbys for ‘meat ’n’ potato’ people too.
Our focus was entirely breakfast. Specialties would seem to be quiche, pancakes, and humongous doughnut holes (son had those – very good).
Service was top notch.
Wife had veggie egg-white omelet. Quite ample and she liked it. Three ingredients included. More, like pizza, cost extra. ‘bout $8,
I had the Cheddar Toad in a Hole. A $9 egg dish. Very good.
The food was on the very edge of being over-priced. It was pretty good – not wonderful. Excellent presentation. Fun, moderately quiet atmosphere.
Excellent coffee!
Recommended! I’ll go back if in neighborhood. Won’t make a special trip.
