I’ve blogged about this. But it is so wonderful, and probably tied with Soma for the ultimate Bloomington experience. Where else can you eat dinner in an armchair and order whatever you want: breakfast and dinner combined? Fruit and yogurt and sauteed vegetables? Yes please. Pancakes with the circumference of a bicycle tire, made with whole grain flours and studded with anything from chocolate chips to granola to fresh fruit. Humungous omelets (egg white, if you wish) with gooey layers of cheese. Geometrically cut whole wheat toast with apple butter. The Black Russian sandwich: a vegetarian Reuben of sorts with sauteed vegetables (the best ever), colby cheese and house dressing on black bread. Eggs benedict. Spice-coated, fatty salmon over a salad that has never been the same twice.

Dessert, also always changing. Oh, and how about their take on Soma’s White Zombie, the Blonde Mocha (much better, if you ask me)?  goodbye bloomington 390INTENSIVE RUSSIAN 035

Oh, and did I mention that they close the restaurant at 10 and the coffee/ dessert bar at midnight? And that their bathroom was apparently featured on the discovery channel?

And my favorite tattooed waitress never fails to compliment my gladiator sandals.

That’s about all I can put into words about Runcible Spoon. It’s like dining in someone’s living room, ordering whatever you want whenever you want. But it’s not a diner—it’s so much more than that. You sort of have to go there to experience it. I’ll let the pictures do the talking for now.

Oh, and PS. I have a terrible to confession to make. I now eat my omelets with ketchup. I know. I don’t want to talk about it.
