The almighty Village Deli

First of all, let me just say - breakfast food >>>>>> any other food. And as far as Btown eats go, Village Deli is THE PLACE to get breakfast food. Some people will argue that the Runcible Spoon is better, but don't listen to them. RS is good, but VD is great. Beyond great. It's a gift. 

Why is The Village Deli so great you ask? Why is the sky blue? Why do we love Yogi Ferrell? IT JUST IS WHAT IT IS. *actually, the sky is blue because of science or something, but regardless.

  1. BOMB grub. Like, you can close your eyes and just point at the menu because it's all good. Personal favorites include: 
  • Breakfast Burrito
  • Spinach Scramble
  • Pancake (singular, they are MASSIVE)
  • 1/2 order of French toast and an order of Paxton's Potatoes (spuds covered in cheese and gravy)
  1. Diner coffee. I’ll admit, diner coffee is not the highest quality. But you’re trading quality for quantity. One cheap mug = unlimited refills to accompany your delicious meal. It’s a part of the charm of the Deli. Good coffee wouldn’t feel right.
  2. Breakfast served all day. This is pretty self-explanatory. Breakfast for breakfast. Breakfast for lunch. Breakfast for dinner.

Deli is a good choice whether your parents are in town, you had a rough Friday night or you're just sick of dorm food. 

One last thing…IT’S BUSY. This isn’t just popular with IU students, The Village Deli is a Bloomington favorite. You’re gonna have the whole town waiting for a table come breakfast/brunch time. Every day, but especially Saturday mornings - come early or wait in line! 

Note: my personal weekly record is four times in one week. This is probably definitely unhealthy and took a small fortune (in college student standards) out of my bank account. But, oh so worth the calories and funds.

Live Deli. Love Deli. Just go to Deli already. I'll see you there.
