Food Scene
An inexpensive, yet tasty and unique spot is Yats. Yats serves “fast food” Cajun food. Lots of places to sit, fast service, and if we were you, we’d get an extra order of their french bread. SO GOOD.

Located in our very own neighborhood (Windsor Park), this restaurant is absolutely one of a kind in Indianapolis. Started by the same chef who started Milktooth (see below), food choices are limited, small, but incredibly unique. If you’re looking for classic American fare, this is NOT it. If you’re looking for a decadent food journey that will engage all of your senses, this IS it. Food is pricey, but rich and filling.

About as local as it gets, Tick Tock Lounge is a small bar serving up food and drink specials every day of the week. Our favorite is their Monday night $5 burger special (comes with fries!) and rumor has it they have a pretty killer brunch on the weekend, too.

Brand new taproom that just opened in our own neighborhood (Oct 2018). Great food, extensive beer and cocktail list and even a cute outdoor patio with lights.

Did we mention there's a coffee shop within walking distance? Locally owned and operated, this is a perfect place to grab a hot cup to go or sit and work for awhile. Free wifi. If you decide to drive? 2 mins away.

Coffee shop by day, cocktail bar by night. Awesome vibes inside, and another spot with an awesome outdoor patio. Located right off of the Monon Trail (see below) so if you're taking a trip on the trail, make sure to make a stop here! ALSO. Their croissants are delish!

So many good options here. Get a slice or a whole pizza. We love that it’s open late, too. If you’re dining in, there’s a 20’s style cocktail lounge that feels like it’s straight out of the Great Gatsby.

If you’re looking for inexpensive, authentic (for the midwest) Mexican food with a MILLION options: this is it. Warning: it may look sketchy from the outside, but inside all the servers and hosts are super friendly and serve up amazing food. Eat in in their fun dining area or order out. Located in the neighborhood of Holy Cross.

Said to be one of the best restaurants/brunch spots in Indianapolis, there’s a reason why there’s usually a wait. People love this place. The inside is eclectic, food choices are unexpected and unique, and coffee is bottomless! Prepare to spend a pretty penny here. Food is delicious, but portions are pretty small. They have a rotating menu so things change, but they have a few staples that stay the same. According to our friend Kelsey, they have the best grilled cheese sandwich in Indy (comes with a duck egg on top, say whaaat?)

We like to think of this place as a unique and classy approach to traditional Mexican fare. We have tried things from fish tacos to POT ROAST tacos. Food is tasty and unique, but the environment is usually what we come for. This may be one of the prettiest restaurants in Indianapolis. (10 min drive)

A restaurant, bar, and brewery that has been remodeled from an old church (hence the name). Great selection of local beers and food. Our personal favorite? Rigatoni Pasta made with lamb sausage, baby spinach, and porchini mushroom cream sauce. (5 min drive)

This Old-Pharmacy-turned-hipster-coffee-shop is one of our absolute favorite spots in Indy. So many things to love about this place, but here are just a few: if you are working and using a laptop, every table has an outlet for your convenience. They have a full menu of crepes named after each neighborhood on the eastside of Indianapolis. They have new rotating coffee drinks every month. But not feeling coffee? There's a cider spot that shares the same building called Ash and Elm (also highly recommended).

Part coffee shop, part ping pong bar. Don't forget to check out the cozy hideout nook upstairs! And, if you happen to stop by on a day when our friends Jess and Anthony are working, tell them we sent you.

Local brewery serving up some of Indiana's finest beers. The best part about this brewery is that there are tables and a large selection of board games to choose from (and even a few pinball machines, too).
