This cute cafe, with locations all over the city, had the most amazing breakfast!
Loved the decor inside! Complete with self-serve coffee bar, where I had chocolate fudge coffee!!
The Bon Vivant.*
Ham, Swiss, Grainy Mustard, and Onion. Best one I've had in a while!
The fresh sourdough bread was cinnamon toast, which was to die for!
Broad Ripple was my favorite area of Indy, with tons of cute shops, boutiques, vintage stores, and restaurants.
Our first stop in Broad Ripple.
Second stop: breakfast at Three Sisters Cafe. I got the Florentine, scrambled eggs with spinach, basil, tomatoes, mozzarella, and parmesan. Served with multi-grain toast.
Chris's breakfast. Multi-grain pancakes w/fresh strawberries. Both pancakes came layered on top of each other! This was ONE order!
One of the many cute boutiques in Broad Ripple.
This sushi place came highly recommended....and it did not disappoint! We loved it! Most any city Chris or I visit, we have to find a great sushi place.
The Playboy Roll was set on fire so the bottom would caramelize... loved the texture it gave.
(front) Toro Tuna - the best thing you will ever have at a sushi restaurant!
(back) The Corona Roll... amazing, amazing roll covered with a lime sauce!
Ok, I must take a break with all the pictures to set up this next place... This is possibly the coolest place I've ever been, in regards to wine tasting. The first day I walked around downtown, I noticed a place called Tastings. I immediately knew I would be coming here at some point during my stay. (It's a wine place...come on...you guys know how I feel about wine ;) ) This type of wine bar is a new concept in the U.S. Here's the skinny, according to their website...
One of the many "tasting stations" where your card is inserted, deducting your total balance, and the machine gives you your pour of wine. GENIUS.
My favorite station.
Cheese plate w/special cheeses from all over the world!
That's all, picture wise. We also ate at St. Elmo Steak House, which was absolutely wonderful! We had Decoy Cabernet, which is made by the same people as my beloved Duckhorn Cab. Also, to good (and famous) not to mention is the St. Elmo Shrimp Cocktail. It is, by far, the best shrimp cocktail I've ever had! It comes with their homemade, very spicy horseradish sauce... you must try this if you go! Word on the street is that John Travolta has his jet stop in Indianapolis, anytime he's in or near the city, to get several orders of the shrimp cocktail!
