Coffee Shops

We understand the importance of a good cup of coffee. It can set the tone for your day to come, or can be the much-needed afternoon pick-me-up. So, without further ado, here’s our guide to local coffee shops in Indy.

There’s buzz around Bee Coffee Roasters, a coffee shop that is serious about coffee. Their knowledgeable staff can explain how they roast their own beans and offer advice on picking a brewing method that fits your palate. In the warmer months, order the slightly sweet plum buzz coffee soda.
