About Cafe Pizzaria:

Opening it’s doors in February of 1953, Cafe Pizzaria was Bloomington’s first pizzeria. The menu consisted only of pizza, but their signature Hot Submarines and Strombolis were quickly added to the list of delicious menu items. Originally named “The Pizzaria” the name was changed to “Cafe Pizzaria” in the late-sixties. Cafe Pizzaria featured a full-service Mexican menu, “La Tortilla,” from 1967–71. A Spanish dungeon theme was used to decorate the back room of the restaurant, including: rod iron light fixtures, giant distressed beams on the ceiling, and whiskey barrels and kegs used as tables and chairs. Remnants of this decor remain in the restaurant. A second kitchen was added to prepare the Mexican food, now used to prepare our grilled sandwiches and burgers.
