The Coffee Hound is the best coffee spot in the Bloomington/Normal area. They are consistent and quick with their service. It feels great to support a local business that delivers each time.

Coffee Hound's owners toiled to make this a hangout for old and young, students and dropouts, locals and visitors. Don't miss the pourovers and the cranberry orange scones. Steve, one of the owners, brings European baking skills to the mix. Enjoy!!!!!
