What’s the one thing that wakes you up on a cold winter morning when all you want to do is crawl back to bed? Or the one thing that can turn an awful Monday meeting in the office into a delightful experience? It’s the one thing that can turn almost any situation around 180 degrees, which coincidentally is an appropriate serving temperature. We’re talking about coffee of course.
Lucky for us all, it’s not hard to find a good cup at one of the many Indianapolis coffee shops. No matter where you’re at, you’re bound to be close to one of these local favorites.
Here are a few local coffee shops around Indianapolis in no particular order:
Noble Coffee & Tea, Ltd. - Nestled right in downtown Noblesville, this coffee shop roasts beans on site and serves up a mean cup of coffee. The highly trained team here can whip up any coffee drink you desire, and as the name suggests you can also select from one of many terrific teas.
SOHO Cafe & Gallery - This Carmel coffee shop is the 2013 Indy A-List winner. Stop by this New York inspired cafe, kick back in one of the comfy couches, and enjoy a cup of perfectly poured java. Be sure to spend some time browsing the art gallery too!
