Cafe Nora is a convenient restaurant for those who live in the Meridian Hills or other neighboring town areas. It is located near Target and other shopping areas so you can go there after doing errands. The food is excellent and the staff is really nice.
Binkley's is an American restaurant with rather tasty food. While the service isn't amazing all the time, the food will usually make up for it. It's a great place to go before going out for young adults because it is right down the street from Broad Ripple.
Birthday presents, Valentine's Day, Christmas, Easter, Halloween. You name it, Sweet Things celebrates it. They have anything from Swedish Fish to gourmet chocolate. They can make little birthday boxes full of wonderful goodies (with themes) and you get to put everything that you want in there. Everything is delicious! Also, they have some sugar free candies for those that are diabetic which is good because sugar free candies that are as amazing as these are hard to find!
Tavern On Rush is a convenient place to eat if you are out shopping during the day. While it is more than likely going to be quite busy, they have excellent food and a friendly staff.
Carmen's is a great place to go for some traditional chicago style deep dish pizza. It may take a while to make, but it's definitely worth the wait. There are always a lot of students in Carmen's due to the low prices and high quality of food.
Italian food at its best. Mama Carolla's Old Italian is a house turned into a restaurant. It's extremely unique and fun to look around in the different rooms. If the weather allows, ask to sit outside on the patio; It makes you feel as if you are actually in Italy! I have tried many dishes and have yet to be disappointed. It can be a fun family gathering place or a nice place to go on a date.
This restaurant has amazing food! The service is incredible, and the owner could not be nicer. He walks around during the evening making sure that the customers are enjoying their food, and he also takes orders and helps out the servers. The atmosphere is wonderful and a great place to go with anyone.
If you want a great Thai meal, the Thai Cafe is the place to go. It is a quaint little restaurant with a wonderful atmosphere and incredible food. Be careful though and be wary about the spice number you order. It can get pretty hot!
Three Sisters Cafe is a cute little restaurant located in Broad Ripple. It is actually an old house and is interestingly decorated. The food is healthy and delicious, and it's a great place to go with friends or family for a nice lunch. I recommend the hummus dish!
Global Gifts is a great little store to get a gift for almost anyone. Everything is handmade by people from across the world, mostly from third-world countries. It is a non for profit organization and really benefits the artisans that are participating. The merchandise is unique, interesting, and beautiful.
