The line is long (parent weekend) but it moves fast. The food is great. We had the eggs Benedict and the corned beef hash (with eggs) and both were very good. Service was attentive and we were able to sit outside.

Visited early afternoon on a beautiful fall Saturday. This cafe has a cute patio and it was full. I was seated inside without a wait. Runcible is very popular with the IU students and has a nice beer and coffeehouse style drink menu. The coffee...More
