Batch Bakery has wonderful baked goods - I've never had anything I didn't like. Had the ham and gruyere croissant for breakfast and almost bought another one it was so delicious. Their breads are wonderful as well not to mention the sweet pastries. A definite stop every time I'm in Madison!!

Everything I eat at batch is fantastic. From savory croissants with gruyère cheese to breads that you can eat without anything else and sweet treats are excellent too.

Wide selection of pastries. Your biggest problem will be making just a few selections! This has to be in the top 5 bakeries around Madison.

Great little bakery. Love the filled baguettes! Cute little neighborhood too. It is a nice place to stop for a mid afternoon stop with a coffee or tea.

I absolutely love this bakery. It is one of our go-to spots every time we're in Madison. The bread is amazing and the pasteries are perfection. Oh so much real butter. This is definitely a take it and go type of place. There is limited seating but more take home your treats and indulge. Monkey buns, mini-fruit pies, croissants, cupcakes,... More

From out of town, I used the email interactive on the Batch website to see if I could reserve some type of cake for a child's birthday the following day, saturday. Later that day, a worker from Batch called me and said that yes, she could reserve a double chocolate for pick up the next day. We are very glad... More

We stopped here on our way to a brunch location for a sisters getaway Saturday. It was a spur of the moment decision, best decision ever. It quickly turned into a nightmare, since we are still dreaming about the next time we could drive 2 hours to come back here! We each got one or two items, but as soon... More

The Scali loaves are some of the best bread loaves I've ever had in my life. We buy them 2 or 3 at a time and freeze them, then make our own home made garlic bread. Great desserts to choose from too! You will not be disappointed :)

Good thing I live in California and not near this place. Pastries were just as good (maybe better) as ones in Europe. We bought 4 ham/cheese croissants, chocolate mini croissant, gruyere croissant and money bread. Took them to go and my daughter-in-law warmed them in the oven and best breakfast ever!

This is a nice, little bakeshop on Willy street. There are a few tables outside and indoor seating at a counter along the window. In addition to bread and pastries, they also have coffee/tea (I think apple cider was on the menu too). The place itself isn't fancy, but the baked goods on display make up for it. I stopped...

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.
