There’s something about this time of year when the Christmas lights come down, the sky is gray, and the thermometer is near the bottom that calls for a warm cup of coffee.
Luckily, Indianapolis and the surrounding areas have an abundance of good options for coffee shops if you’re brave enough to face the cold.
We’ve complied a list of just a few of our favorite places downtown and on the westside.
Danville has a few gems you need to check out if you’re out that way.
The location of this coffee shop is charming and full of history. They also offer a big selection breakfast and lunch food. You have to hit this shop before 2 though or you’ll miss out!
Don’t stop by here if you’re looking for a latte. Arcane Coffee Company is serious about their coffee. They custom roast all of their own coffee for the freshest cup.
Further north on the westside is the original location of a downtown favorite.
Bee Coffee Roasters
The original location is near Eagle Creek Park off 56th street and they’ve opened a second location downtown. Both locations are cozy places to enjoy your cup of coffee. There is no bad choice from the menu here!
And of course Downtown offers some of the best coffee shops around. There are way too many to list so we’ve just included our favorites.
Right off of IUPUI’s campus Mo’Joe Coffee has plenty of room for sitting and working or reading. They also offer beer and wine if you’re there later in the day. If sweet drinks are your thing, you need to try the dark chocolate cherry latte.
Calvin Fletcher’s Coffee Company
Feel good about where your latte budget is going with the non profit coffee shop. Everything they offer is fair trade and organic while the profits go back to the community. They offer delicious pastries and a light lunch menu as well.
A cute corner coffee shop that turns into a wine and beer bar in the evening. They offer coffee and basic lattes but everything is great. They have a wonderful chai tea latte.
