The line is long (parent weekend) but it moves fast. The food is great. We had the eggs Benedict and the corned beef hash (with eggs) and both were very good. Service was attentive and we were able to sit outside.

Great service and an amazing coffee menu. Breakfast options are fairly wide ranging, although typical of breakfast menus. The fried egg sandwich with mushrooms and cheddar was delicious. Dish came with seasoned home fries - just the right amount of flavor. Would have preferred crispier...More

Brunch on Sundays seems to be complicated in Bloomington cafés. Runcible had the short waiting time and good reviews so we decide for it. Service is very nice and the drinks came very fast. Cappuccinos were excellent. But it took a long time for the...More
