"I love the atmosphere inside and out."

—Shiann

I’ve been frequenting Coffee Hound since my freshman year at Illinois State. I like it because it’s a cute coffee shop in a nice area. I love the atmosphere inside and out. I also enjoy that there’s something for everyone. Before the Hound, I’d never had a latte that I liked. Coffee Hound has a really smooth and delicious latte which is now my go-to order!

"It's more than a cup of coffee. It's a process. It's a family."

—Michael

Only certain businesses are able to offer more than a place or product. It takes passion, knowledge, and an investment in the people surrounding the business to make a place feel like it’s a part of the community. The Hound is one of the few places in BloNo where you get that feeling. It’s the amazing baristas memorizing your order, the daily playlists giving you all the feels, and the excitement April and Steve create through their passion for all things coffee. It’s more than a cup of coffee. It’s a process. It’s a family. Everyone is welcome.

"I really value that Coffee Hound has ethically sourced coffee."

—Hanah

I’ve been a customer since 2016. The quiet atmosphere is what brings me back. Even if there is background noise it helps me to feel productive. I also think it’s a really safe environment. I really value that Coffee Hound has ethically sourced coffee.

"The staff knows me and my order..."

—Samantha

There are two major reasons that I keep coming back to coffee hound: the quality of coffee and the customer service. The staff knows me and my order, which means I’m consistently getting a great drink.

"You can tell that the staff love what they do..."

—Gaby

I began coming to the Coffee Hound around three years ago. It wasn’t long after my first visit that I found myself coming here every day. It’s a great place to study or relax on the weekends. You can tell that the staff love what they do and care about the craft! I recommend Coffee Hound to anyone who values small businesses.

"It has a homey feeling and the best coffee around..."

—Nickolas

I love coming to the Coffee Hound because it’s a different experience than other shops I’ve been too. It has a homey feeling and the best coffee around Bloomington Normal. Plus, the Uptown location is close to ISU’s campus which is so convenient for me.
