One of my top 5 places to eat in town. Amazing brunch food, very cool decor. The staff is just ok but the food more than makes up for it! Sinful!

The atmosphere and layout of this restaurant and "twist" the attached bar is interesting. The bar area is more funky modern and twist side is more casual. The menu was good and interesting, options for most everyone. The breakfast menu looked really good but is...More

This place serves a better brunch than some great restaurants I've visited in larger cities with more developed brunch markets. There's just one problem: hordes of other hungry people agree with me.

We came here with friends from Bloomington who are vegetarians and I can see why they recommended it. A varied menu for all tastes AND half-portions are available for selected items. The soup of the day was a creamy butternut squash, a bit too sweet...More

This place was great! Right near the Monon trail in Indianapolis. Dogs are allowed to sit outside on the patio while you eat! They brought water for our dogs (with ice in it) in a dog bowl with our drink order. Extremely friendly wait staff, great art inside, wonderful food! Breakfast was delicious my girlfriend had crem brulee french toast...wow amazing! I had a salad that was to die for! I hope you are able to add this great find in Indy/Broad Ripple!
