REVIEWS OF Rainbow Bakery IN Indiana

Ayush Rustagi

It’s the best vegan bakery in Indiana. It has amazing variety and they change menu on a regular basis. Go early to get their Choco chip cookies. They are gone soon as they are amazing.

Adrienne Mahrenholz

Great cupcakes and even better coffee!

Ben Owens

Jennie Orr

Fantastic vegan baked goods! You have to try their oatmeal cream pies and banana chocolate chip muffins! It is a little pricier than other bakeries but worth it for their unique offerings. Also a great place to hangout and work or study with reliable WiFi.

Sydney Bristow

The coffee was on the verge of being cold. There was no regular cream. It looks runned down and the prices are over the top and for what? I will never be back. There are too many other places in bloomington that serve coffee that is hot and with regular cream

Vincent Bailey

Fantastic vegan bakery with helpful, knowledgeable employees always available to answer questions about ingredients, daily options, upcoming events, etc. Truly a neighborhood gem.

L Jean Camp

Funky, fun and distinctive baked goods.

Leslie D

Jon Swiatek

Delicious, and they have cold brew coffee!

Zechariah Baumhover

So sick! Love that Homer donut and the Argentinean hand pie. Would love to try all the hand pies. Don't be scared if you're not vegan.

Brennan Brooker

Best vegan hand pies for a savory breakfast, always great coffee! Not to mention they have the best donuts in town, vegan or non-vegan

Magdalene Hanell

If you're looking for vegan friendly options definitely consider rainbow bakery. They accommodate most dietary restrictions (vegan and gluten free) while keeping delicious options for baked items for everyone that comes in! It's a great breakfast place with friendly staff and quick service! Definitely a place to put on your list to check out!

I love this place. Everything I have tried there has been spectacular and I have tried a lot. I always take friends and family here when they come to visit.

Karen Bauer

Wish you opened earlier. Stopped in at 7:57 and couldn't get served. :(

Jean-Gabriel Young

Great vegan donuts in a laid back setting with good coffee from hopscotch on the cheap. A+

Gabby Datema

The donuts are to die for

Paht J

Friendly staff, yummy cupcakes and donuts.

Justin Reed

Jeremy Simpson

It's all vegetarian. But wait! It actually tastes good! They make a Michigan pasty that reminds me of the U.P. They also make a vegan maple bacon donut that while it's definitely not bacon, is still damn tasty.

Tyler Frailie


Paul Robinson

Great vegan treats!

Caitlin Conley

Amazing food, kind people behind the counter, good coffee and beautiful atmosphere.

Tara Fays

Gluten free and vegan apple cake that tastes like it was baked in heaven.

Taylor_ The demon

Ive been vegan for 10 years so this is amazing to me

Brandon Powell

My wife loves their ability to cater to a wide variety of food allergies. Vegan, gluten free, nut free is a option here.

Kayla Mitchell

Not only do they offer all vegan desserts, but their donuts are the best I have ever had. They offer unique donut flavors that change daily such as maple "bacon", cookies & cream, green tea, chia, and more. In addition, their cookies, cupcakes, and breakfast pastries are equally delicious. It's also a great spot to hangout with excellent WiFi and a Pacman arcade game to play.

Gautam Gogineni

Vegan concept is good, but neither the Hand Pie nor the Lemon Poppy muffin was fresh. Coffee tasted good, but wasn't hot. Didn't have right Equipment to warm of stuff either.

Chelsea Richmond

Yummy yummy food, great customer service, and you can get in and out in a flash. Everything is vegan so that makes it the healthiest bakery in town.


Everything is delicious. The atmosphere is cozy. During our last visit, Ben was at the register, and they were really kind and helpful.


Daniel Bryan Would Love This Place!! Great Menu Selection's. Hardworking Professional Staffed. Delicious! Delicious! Delicious!

Nicholas Post

This place has great vegan baked goods, a pleasant atmosphere, and great staff.

Miranda Bay

Best gluten free desserts and donuts!

Pavel Anaschenko

Those pastries are so delicious, I didn't even know they were vegan ;-). The atmosphere is really nice, I like the place. Hope it will survive and not become too crowded.

Teri Watkins

Amazing vegan and Gluten free options

Andrea SR Nikolova

Our family loves Rainbow. I particularly like their made to order cakes, their banana cupcakes, and their lemon lavender or blueberry lemon donuts. It's a fun, small place to hangout and drink a coffee.

David Banner

All vegan. Great coffee and breakfasty snacks. Often I think their pastries are too sweet. I tend to like the savory ones more. Did I mention great coffee?

Weston Bonczek

A beautiful vegan bakery with a great atmosphere. The person at the counter was so kind. The baked goods were not my favorite but I think that is a personal preference toward butter and eggs more than anything about the quality of baking. I'm certain these are excellent vegan bakes.

Debbie Sanders

Best oatmeal creme pies! Large gluten free section! The cutest little bakery around, with lovely staff to help with selections.

Rose Smith

Vegan has never been so delicious before!


(Translated by Google) Small place with few options to eat. Should not be called "Bakery" (Original) Lugar pequeno e com poucas opções para comer. Não deveria se chamar "Bakery"

Amy Dillman

The hours are terrible but not as terrible as the cupcake and donut that I had.

Cian Flaherty

Maia Kenney

Sweet smell, great treats, best vibe. It's a community hangout that never feels crowded or pretentious, and you don't ever feel cheated by the veganity of Rainbow's goods. Simple and lovely!

Jake Heyerdahl

Fantastic vegan cookies and treats.

Wendy Samuels

Love this place. Not only is all of their items vegan but the workers are awesome too. I would give 5 stars if they had more of a variety.

Landon Cones

Very thoughtful.

Lisa Shelton

If you are looking for bakery serving good quality vegan bakery items this place is for you.

Will Watt

Good bakery goods.

Christian Lankford

Hella good donuts. They offer day olds for less money. Such good stuff. Can't stress it enough

Simona Staneva

Very pleasant atmosphere. Everything was delicious!

Cory Hawkins

Rainbow is extra sparkly and bright, the 1940s decor of pastel colors extends to their fun colored donuts. Most of their stock is vegan which is a fantastic offering. But for the rest of us it makes for a sweet, very augary dessert. Drip coffee from hopscotch. Im in need of something stronger.

Luke Stockhausen

Excellent bakery. Gluten free and vegan options!


Best bakery in Indiana, cute cupcakes and the coffee is incredible.

Andrew Daigle

Great vegan food Great service. Very eclectic.

Cinco May

My wife and I are huge fans of the gluten-free donuts and muffins, and we look forward to our annual visit all year long!

Alexis Bujtas

Rainbow Bakery is a really cute spot! Everything there is vegan, and they have a box of pastries that are also gluten free. It's got a cool, retro vibe.

Thomas Gruenenfelder

Chelsey Bough

Visited Rainbow Bakery as a Vegan with 2 non vegan friends. We all loved our sweet treats. It's great to have a local place available with vegan friendly options that everyone can enjoy. Cute building, fun atmosphere, tasty foods.

Allison Rodriguez

Their donuts are good enough and filling enough to have for a morning meal.

Natalia M

I love vegan products! And am so happy a vegan bakery opened in our city. It’s a charming place on the Western side of downtown. The style is very modern hippie chick with a folksy charm. The baked products are tasty and I think most people would not guess its vegan. The donuts were tasty, I had both blueberry and coconut. Moist yet light. The cookies were average. Coffee was OK. I really liked the gluten free cookie, it was not “strange” at all.

Susan Barker

I was unable to pick up a special order before 7:00pm and the owners graciously stayed late to meet me. The cookies and oatmeal pies were nicely boxed and waiting as I made a quick run in and out. Thank you!

Heather Allen

Best chocolate chip cookiee I have ever had

Nicole Thompson

Rainbow Bakery is great. Donuts, pasties, cupcakes, muffins, cookies... all vegan, all superb!! The coffee is really wonderful, too. And the decor is very retro, very cute. Everything about Rainbow is awesome. Go see for yourself!

Anthony Almond

Subramanian Lakshmanan

Nice place to buy vegan donuts, pricey though

Jeffrey Conner

I was in town to visit a friend, and we stopped in at Rainbow Bakery. The bakery has a charming atmosphere. It's colorful and the wall is filled with local artwork. The selection of treats offers a combination of unique flavors and classic tastes. The experience was charming overall, and if you're looking for your morning fix of coffee and sugar, I recommend you stop in.

Ariss McKalynn

We love rainbow!! I always bring my out of town friends here, whether vegan or not! We love the handpies and the eclectic donuts most of all! Nothing here ever tastes bad, and we love the coffee, too!

Good unique doughnuts.

This is a wonderful bakery that I have enjoyed bringing my children to as a special treat. I especially appreciate the gluten free case of goodies that are delicious!

Sarah Nicholson

Service with smiling employees, amazing donuts, muffins, and cookies. My 6-year-old son and I frequent this bakery. It’s our go to place to a conversation and sweet treat. His favorite is the cinnamon sugar donut, mine is the gluten-free sweet pea. Thank House brew coffee is awesome and offer all kinds of alternative creamers and sweetness. Definitely relaxing, chill, and fun hang out spot with amazing art.

Great vegan treats!

Hema Patel

Great vegan bakery

Justin Miller

amazing pastry and a great help

Monster Rabbit Gamer

Great vegan treats.

Emma Bullard

Extremely cute, clean, and the staff were nice. Food was different (I don't normally eat vegan) but still really good. I think prices were fair considering the cost of ingredients. The only downside was very limited metered parking, but thats just Bloomington.

Joelie Key-Tissot

The hand pies and scones are amazing! Donuts are really good and creative!

Rohit Nair

A little on the expensive side, but good food. Very useful for vegetarians/vegans

Jo Lampke

Really delicious vegan and gluten free donuts, cookies, and pastries for a really great price! Quite possibly the best donut place in Bloomington, even if you aren't vegan. Cashiers are friendly, the food is delicious, and the atmosphere is great. Order the Laura Palmer if you get the chance!

Olivia Farrington

Delicious donuts, cute decor, quick service, and a fully vegan menu! I’ll be back for sure.

Brianna Sanger

Best iced coffee in town, great selection of pastries (including gluten-free options), Pacman machine...need I saw more? Be sure to try the lavender or green tea cupcakes.

Kristi Schultz

Kenneth Nicholas

I have a daughter with allergies and she loves their treats. Quality and delicious. Good variety always.

Mark Klein

This is such a wonderful little spot to take a break and have some delicious sweet and savory treats! They have set up a cute and eclectic atmosphere and have a creative and yummy menu! It’s always a treat to visit.

David Fender

Quite and convenient location, friendly staff.

Amanda Perera

A trendy bakery with free wi-fi making it a perfect place to hang out with friends or get some work done. Rainbow Bakery has an entire case devoted to gluten free options and is a baked-good haven for vegans and non-vegans alike. Personal favourites include their gluten-free oatmeal cookie cream pie, pumpkin ginger muffin, sea salt chocolate chip cookie, the breakfast pastie and cheese and potato pastie (eager to try their chicken leak pastie, which I'm told is the best!) and all of their cupcakes. The single best thing I have ever bought from Rainbow was a custom order of salted caramel filled chocolate cupcakes with salted caramel chocolate icing (pictured). It seems their custom orders are currently unavailable, but I believe they plan to bring it back in the near future. Price is not cheap, but affordable - most items sit between $2-$4. Additionally, I will say that I am always a tad disappointed with the consistency and flavour of their well-loved donuts, but maybe that's just me! This place is a gem, regardless, and will be one of the things I miss most about Bloomington when I leave!

Seth Grady

One of my favorite places to visit for a treat just west of downtown Bloomington. From donuts (cake) to cookies and brownies this place has what it takes to satisfy your sweet tooth. Light lunch fare and local coffee are also available. Best of all, everything is either vegetarian or vegan. Gluten-free options are available as well.

Carol Ramos

Pricey but vegan yummy options

gordan gordan

It's ok

Jesse R

Really love this place as the pastries are AMAZING and the atmosphere inviting - staff is very friendly. A safe place!

Madison Young

Delicious doughnuts. Everything was vegan. Coffee was grand. Cashier was super nice and friendly. My 7 year old loved it and so did I.

Lucy Fischman

I love how they bake different things every day, all of it is great. Nice place to work too; gorgeous exhibits.

Susan Kleinbauer

Rosemary James

Rainbow has it all - coffee, tea, unique sweet and savory treats, a plant wall, and local art.

Brynna W

Absolutely wonderful cake donuts, hand pies, and more. I also love the rotating art displays and the general decor.


I'm glad a vegan bakery exists, but it's just okay. Not spectacular. Small in size and quantity—perhaps five or six options. Creative flavors though! Predictably hip. Neat art for sale on the walls. I appreciate the option of day-old donuts. But my heart lies with Colorado Donuts of Eagle Rock, California.

Amanda Murphy

I love all the delicious pastries I have purchased here. There seem to be a lot options for those with dietary restrictions, but the baked goods are amazing no matter how you eat.

Greyson Yandt

Adam Dale

The donuts here are delicious. Many fun flavors to choose from. Nice environment to get some work done and the staff has been very nice every time I've been.

Dan Galat

Cute local place. Funky with good doughnuts, coffee and pastries.

Scott Dial

Melanie Smith

Suzy Lister

Ordered 6” cake with 11 days notice, and the order was confirmed the next day. One day later, I was informed by email the order could no longer be fulfilled, they offered cupcakes instead. After expressing dissatisfaction, I asked if the owner/manager could please call me - I promptly received an email from Jane Kupersmith (the owner) that said “I think we’re finished here.” (!)

Eleanor Roberts

I went to this bakery in college, and it made my little heart sing. Great flavor options and vegan donuts with a delectible, moist texture. I special ordered a dozen donuts for a birthday and I noticed a very easy ordering process. It seems to have been much improved since the last special order I made years ago in which dates got mixed up. However, the trade off in the past years seems to be that the processes have improved, but the flavors have changed! Maybe I'm seeing the past with rose-colored glasses, but I remember much more interesting choices. Flavors like sage, rose, pink lemonade changed to strawberry, raspberry, and lemon poppyseed. I miss the daring choices, but also realize that may have been the flavors of the day. I hope to come back to some more adventurous flavors next time I stop in!

Charles Stafford

Great atmosphere and wonderful baked goods!

Don Price

Vegan awesome ness

Terran Marks

From a non-vegan who likes donuts, Rainbow does an amazing job. A cup of Hopscotch's Weekender and a Peach Basil donut were the perfect combination in between errands the other day.

Allison M

Yummy vegan and gluten-free desserts. Tahini chocolate chip cookies are delicious

Kris Penland

Neysa Elbon

Amazing baked goods and I love the Laura Palmer drink! Thank you for making wonderful gluten free foods.

Mike S

Trendy little vegan bakery. Excellent donuts as well as coffee. And the piece de resistance is a Pac-Man arcade game located inside. Highly recommend.

Donna Krahn

Love this place

Claire Romine

The BEST place for donuts and everything delicious and vegan.

Eric Zmuda

Coffee was good, brownie was not. Meh.

Kelby Rogers

Very delicious! I had two gluten free muffins there and they were both good and reasonably priced! I will definitely be coming back!

Bastard Pineapples


Fantastic vegan options

Matthew Meyer

Everything was great!

Nicholas Puett

Dustin parr

Vegan doughnuts, Yes please! The savory scone was the star of the show though. Will definitely be back.

Lyudmila Austin

Rare to find vegan AND gluten-free options. Delicious pastries and cozy atmosphere. Wish they had a bakery like this everywhere!


The donuts are baked rather than fried, which I didn't know ahead of time, but didn't mind at all because they're all delicious!! There wasn't a bad donut in the bunch. I will definitely be back.

Amy Arnold

Paula Brown


Alex Estabrook

Delicious vegan and non vegan offerings, and great coffee

Lauren Killigrew

Fun, retro atmosphere & vibes. Delicious vegan pastries and baked goods. They also provide gluten-free options!

Charles Woerdeman

Nice assortment

Sandy Arnold

Awesome bakery items & super fresh. Molasses Spice cookies are my fav, but all the innovative donut flavors are excellent. I'm not vegan, or even vegetarian, but they Rock!!! Love the retro decor.... And the vintage table in the middle was just like the one I grew up with ❤️

Loretta Richardson

Do not go here if you are looking for an old fashioned type donut. I was very disappointed and paid 2 dollars and some change for one donut.

Jennika Olson

My mom is gluten free and I am vegan - we loveee to go here because there are so many options for both! They have donuts, muffins, and hand pies which are surprisingly yummy. The day old donuts are also still great, I usually get those because they are more affordable. I love the vibes there and most of the employees are friendly. 4/5 because the employee up front could be a lot more friendly and welcoming. There’s also this high pitch sounds every time I come in which makes me want to just eat and leave. I’d love to come in here and do some work too but the sound gives me a headache! I think it comes from the Pac-Man machine?

Eliza Thompson

Wonderful coffee and fresh unique flavored donuts.

Kelsie Fitzpatrick

Great vegan and gluten free options, a must visit for out of towners!

Faith Hunsberger

This was my first vegan cafe ever and it exceeded my expectations. The living wall, the deco, the awesome Pacman game. Truly made the whole of our trip to hear Mae Jemison (first woman of color to go to space in the world) at IU the best one ever. I wish more Rainbow Bakeries existed!! Please bring one to Warsaw!!! Lol

Mom Woods

Great gluten free options. Tasty. Bit pricey.


Have been going to rainbow bakery quite regularly this year! I am always greeted with cheerful employees, and always take a few minutes to decide what to order! The selection is different everyday, with classic-flavored doughnuts, to uncommon and interesting deserts. I always look forward to my biweekly doughnut and coffee, from my favorite cafe in Bloomington!
