We tried Bub's for a late breakfast and were underwhelmed. The atmosphere is eclectic to say the least. They do have a heated outdoor patio that they are remodeling to be an indoor/outdoor space and I understand that they will be closed for three weeks...More

Seated quickly on a Sunday morning at an outside table. Nice casual setting along the Monon Trail. I had the basic breakfast of eggs, bacon, potatoes and toast. My wife had grits and Bub's doughnut holes which were the size of baseballs. Service was outstanding!
