I love The Pourhouse Cafe in Bloomington. I would not consider myself a coffee snob, but there are not many coffee houses that I can say I am extremely fond of. The Pourhouse is on my "must visit" list every time I am in Bloomington. Best coffee and I love all the blended drinks. My favorite is the Mocha Raspberry... More

This is a reallly nice space and the profits go to good causes. The prolem is that it is very popular with students who bring latops and stay long periods. But good if you can get a table.

The coffee is really good, the atmosphere is relaxed and quiet, and the wi-fi is free. The quiche is really good, nice crust (which is hard to achieve when you have to reheat it) and the staff is very pleasant. My husband has spent many an afternoon here, working on his laptop while I was out visiting around with my... More

I LOVE the idea of the Pour House. It is a charity that pays its employees a fair wage and takes the tips to donate to local charity causes. It is an interesting place because both liberals and conservatives have found common ground here in putting their money in a coffee shop that contributes to helping those in need in... More

Pourhouse is a good cafe to go to if you're looking for a place to sit for a few hours and get some good studying/paper writing done. Their coffee and other drinks aren't particularly better than what you could find at other cafes, BUT all their tips go to charity and they use ethical products. So if your choice is... More

I discovered this cafe when I had to arrive to downtown at 08:10 am and the library was still closed. It was great to see this cafe just across from the public library open at 08:00. I loved their chai latte with an extra shot of espresso, man did it wake me up, or what! The only inconvenience I had... More
