The Coolest Places to Eat in Indianapolis

The Indianapolis food scene is having a moment, as new restaurants, brew pubs, and sweet shops have opened around the city. We asked Benjamin and Janneane Blevins, co-owners of the PRINTtEXT periodicals shop in the city’s SoBro neighborhood, to share their top places to eat. The newly opened Cake Bake in Broad Ripple is heavenly, as though grand Paris itself has descended on Indy. Glass cases of perfect pastries are crowned by white marble and a handmade Victoria Arduino espresso machine. Peer through the paned kitchen window and marvel as Gwendolyn Rogers and her master bakers frost their famous chocolate cake. After you’ve selected from the delectable menu—cakes, cakelettes, pies, and other desserts—nestle into a pillowed bistro seat. Each table has its own outlet, so you can curl up and work while enjoying a bowl of cafe au lait or a glass of Champagne, if that’s your style.
