The Best Coffee Spots At IU Bloomington To Get Your Caffeine Fix

All of the best coffee on campus, ranked.

The Best Coffee Spots At IU Bloomington To Get Your Caffeine Fix
Madyn Lewis

1. The Runcible Spoon

This coffee is actually amazing. Probably some of the best coffee I have ever had in my entire life. They have a wide variety of latte options ranging from a mint latte to otherwise, all wonderfully crafted. The average cup of coffee costs $1.45 and the average latte is around $2.50 but can range up to $4 the more add-ons you have. However, this is a small restaurant and difficult to get to daily.

2. Soma

Soma has three locations throughout Bloomington and is incredibly easy to access and find. The coffee is excellent plain and in latte form, they do have several out-of-the box options that can be risky. It comes at a relatively cheap price and is an easy place to sit and get some homework done, which is amazing.

3. The Pourhouse Cafe

The Pourhouse Cafe has excellent coffee, but I wouldn't say it's as good as Soma or Runcible Spoon. That might be an unpopular opinion, but there I said it. The shop itself has a kind of a hipster vibe, and all of their tips are donated to charity. That being said, it's a bit of a hike from campus.

4. Starbucks

There are at least six Starbucks around campus, and as a basic white girl, I can't say I don't enjoy it. It's incredibly accessible with locations inside most dining halls or buildings that serve Starbucks coffee, and the coffee is relatively good. Starbucks has very strong coffee, which can be good, but the local coffee shops do it better. Although it's incredibly easy and convenient, because of its popularity, the average coffee at Starbucks can cost around $2.10, and a medium latte without flavoring $3.65 not including tax.

5. Bloomington Bagel Company

I had to include Bloomington Bagel Company (BBC) only because it's my favorite place to get breakfast at IU, although that's mostly for the bagels. BBC only has regular coffee, and although their bagels are absolutely, incredibly, without a doubt amazing, the coffee is mediocre at best. A medium coffee is $2.40, and there are four accessible BBCs throughout the general Bloomington area, one located by the Sample Gates.

6. McNutt C Store/ Campus Coffee

Campus coffee, specifically the coffee at the McNutt C Store because that's closest to where I live on campus, is quite honestly not the best option, but it's incredibly cheap because of our discounted meal plan. Also, campus coffee is convenient and accessible because we all live on campus.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media. I hope the author of this was kidding or using digital sarcasm, but I am still repulsed and shocked by the lack of appreciation throughout this article.
