“So many wonderful pastries to choose from!”
Review of Batch Bakehouse

Batch Bakehouse
Ranked #5 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.

We get pastries from Batch when we are visiting Madison. The varieties are great, and the quality of the baked goods is top notch. I love anything they make with lemon in it, and the orange flavored pastries are pretty amazing, too. Monkey bread muffins are a must have, and the scones are very good as well. Prices are a bit high, but the product does not disappoint. Parking is on the street and can be hard to find on a busy morning, but don't give up!

I visited this place to bring some goodies to two meetings, and they were definitely goodies. The croissants are the best ones I ever have in Madison. The bakers are not shy to put great ingredients, and I especially love those with almonds and pecans. The ham and gruyere croissants are great with a thick layer of ham, the filled rolls are amazing, and the galettes are a great balance between the sweetness and sourness of fillings. The typical bread though, such as baguettes, are okay. They also serve coffee and have a limited seating area, but my coworkers love the baked goods. The price could be a bit higher than expected, but it's worth for a trip or two per month.

Come to Madison and enjoy high quality LOCAL food, bakery, beer and spirits, even nut butters! our favorite bakery is Batch Bakehouse on the near east side. and now there is room to sit down and have a cup of coffee with a sea salt brownie. the vanilla swirl bun is so delicious as are the baguettes. then don't forget to plan ahead for those special dinners --order ahead and choose a whole pie from the list of options that changes through out the year. Plus the friendly staff are eager to serve and explain their products. you can't go wrong at the Batch!

We arrived in Madison more towards the noon hour on Sunday. This bakery has a wonderful, huge very appetizing selection of breads and pastries. It was kind of tough to make our selection, but we did. We loved the gingerbread muffin..molasses sweet with a lemon glaze and also a pocket with spinach, cheese and bacon. Unfortunately, many things were gone. We did not have the choices in croissants we were hoping for and we ate the last gingerbread muffin. They must have a very loyal following, because the location was a bit puzzling. We had expected it to be very near UW and it is not.
