I stumbled upon this cafe looking for a quick cup of coffee that wasn't Starbucks while visiting Bloomington. After visiting I quickly fell in love and came back as many times as possible in my short stay. Great atmosphere. Quality cofee. Friendly service.

Great place. Good coffee. I like studying and hanging out here, and it's definitely my favorite coffee shop in the area. The food is very tasty, but not cheap.

Rachael is an absolute gem! She is sweet and so is her cafe. Rachael's is a great place to visit if you love supporting local business. Not only does Rachael promote her cafe, but she also promotes local artists and venders. Three cheers for Racael's Cafe!!!!!!

I still go to Soma once in a while for a smoothie or snack, but Rachael's is definitely my new spot for studying. It's a lot cleaner, quieter, and roomier than any of the other independent coffee shops in town. I only wish they had later hours, but that's a problem with all the coffee shops in town, not just Rachael's.
