There is nothing better than starting off your weekend with an awesome brunch. Whether you prefer coffee or a mimosa, traditional eggs benedict or chorizo topped breakfast nachos, our great city has something to offer to match anyone’s taste. Here are a few of our favorite places around town:
Multiple Locations (Carmel, Fishers, Downtown)
This Louisville transplant is one of our favorite places in town for a less traditional brunch. Start off with a glass of their fresh squeezed orange juice or a mimosa. For entrees, some of our favorites include the HUGE gooey cinnamon roll, the Mr. Potato Head casserole, buffalo chicken omelet and the KY Kelsey Brown (a breakfast take on the famous Kentucky Hot Brown).
68 N 9th St, Noblesville, IN 46060
10 S Main St, Zionsville, IN 46077
Head north to Downtown Noblesville or Zionsville for some of the best breakfast, lunch and baked goods around. The atmosphere in an old restored building makes for a great setting. Be sure to not miss the house made quiche of the day for breakfast, sandwiches on homemade bread, or amazing baked goods. Try their famous gooey butter cookies! Who says you can’t have dessert at brunch?
534 Virginia Ave, Indianapolis, IN 46203
Want to visit one of the most critically acclaimed brunch spots in all of the country? Head south this renovated service station in Fountain Square. James Beard Award nominated Chef Jonathon Brooks brings a whole new take to brunch with items such as savory lox and cream cheese danishes, Dutch baby pancakes with ham and gruyere, and pearl sugar waffles with bacon and plum. Get there early or be prepared to wait!
1001 E 54th Street, Indianapolis, IN 46220
This South Broad Ripple gem by the owners of famous Italian restaurant Mama Carrola’s is once again in a renovated service station. Sensing a trend here? Mimosas by the pitcher with their house squeezed orange juice are an excellent place to start if you’re brunching with friends. Some of our favorites off the menu include the Java French Toast, Hawaiian inspired Loco Moco, and the “1940’s Omelet” featuring fried Spam and Cheeze Wiz!
Multiple Locations (Clearwater Crossing, Butler University, Greenwood)
This newer entry to the Indianapolis area is originally from Florida and features the greasy diner classics we all love on a Saturday morning. This might not be the best place if you’re on a diet as the portions are HUGE, but the food is excellent. Our favorites here include the breakfast pie (a skillet smothered in gravy and cheese), the chicken and waffles, and the 12 Inch Metro Pancake Challenge. Be sure to come hungry!
