Every dish is flavorful and fresh! My first choice when having a meal with friends who like vegetarian or vegan food.

I love the Owlery! They offer hearty and flavorful options that omnivores and astute carnivores enjoy and the place is full of owls! How much better can you get?

This is the place for vegetarians to confidently bring their carnivore friends, The warm and friendly atmosphere is matched by elevated home-style cooking. We love the coconut macadamia tofu appetizers as well as fish tacos, the sesame miso bowl, the southern plate, and the red onion jam sandwich. Really good sweet potato fries, too.

You must try the vegetables sandwich. You can add avocado for $1, but you don´t need that, since the sandwich is already spectacular. The sandwiches come with a side, and the sweet potato is always my first option and they come in a good size. The rustic potatoes are also good, but too greasy for me.

We dine here at least once a month, sometimes more frequently, for Sunday brunch. We are not vegans, but we find the food to be quite tasty. Our favorite dishes are the omelets and biscuits and gravy.

Located on the north side of Bloomington's downtown square, The Owlery offers high quality, vegetarian food at affordable prices. At the Owlery, we challenge ourselves to find responsible sources for our ingredients and ethical ways of doing business.At the Owlery, we greatly value the cultural significance of dining together and want to reflect what we love about the Bloomington community - its diversity, openness, and thriving arts scene. We also hope to foster a work environment where employees have input in the restaurant and feel valued as friends and workers.
