“Outstanding old-fashioned bakery (from scratch)”
Review of Batch Bakehouse

Batch Bakehouse
Ranked #3 of 19 Bakeries in Madison
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.

“Outstanding old-fashioned bakery (from scratch)”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

When it comes to made-from-scratch artisan breads and bakery treats, the Batch Bakehouse can't be beat. I love the scali and ciabatta breads. You can either find them at Willy Street Co-op or place a special order if you need something baked fresh for a special occasion. Simple high-quality ingredients, nothing artificial. HIGHLY recommend.

“Great stuff!”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

I really like this bakery, very small and cute and the baguettes are quite good. My only complaint was that I had an enjoyable cookie once, and then I got it again and it wasn't very good.

“Starchy passion”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

The Batch, on the very end of Willy Street, has the best croissants in town. Flakey on the outside, buttery- soft inside. Whenever I want a breakfast treat, that's where I go.

This is a wonderful little bakery with a lot of choices. The chocolate croissants, orange swirl rolls and assorted breads are top notch. I'll be back.
