The Scholars Inn Bakehouse is a Bloomington institution. That is, it is to me! It's been on the square since I can remember... and we arrived in Btown twenty years ago. While I was home, I met up with my friend RM for breakfast at this great little bakery/restaurant.
There are a wide variety of breads and pastries, but there's also an all-day breakfast menu! You can order lunch (sandwiches, etc.) too. You order at the counter, then take your number to your seat to wait for the deliciousness.
RM ordered the biscuits and gravy. I don't usually go for those north of the Mason-Dixon line, but these looked delicious! She added some hot sauce, and it was a hearty meal.
If you're in Bloomington for a visit, I'd say that coffee/breakfast here is a must-do. It's what the locals like! It's perfectly located to enjoy festivals downtown and even the Farmer's Market too.
