I’m a self-proclaimed coffee snob. I bookmark the best local coffee shops and roasters in every city I visit – and while I start most morning with a classic drip coffee, I want something with a bit more pizazz when I travel. So, without further ado, here are my favorite pick-me-up drinks and beverages in Indianapolis.

Tiger Eye at Georgia Street Grind

Georgia Street GrindSome call it a dirty chai, they call it a Tiger Eye; both are a chai tea latte with a shot of espresso. I get mine iced, and it’s my favorite chai in the city.

Golden Milk at Provider at Tinker House Events

Coffee Flight at Mile Square Coffee Roaster

The Notorious F.I.G. at Milktooth
