There are places where you go to eat breakfast and then there are places where you go to really enjoy breakfast like That Sandwich Place in Nashville, Indiana.
As you approach the entrance to the Brown County restaurant, the old Abe Martin sign warns, “where the Bob Knight legacy lives forever.”

Even with the warning, that didn’t prepare my family and I for what they would find. Every nook, cranny, and bit of wall is coated in Bob Knight and Indiana University memorabilia. I am pretty sure that each and every one of us said, “Whoa.”
It is really something to see. Basketballs with autographs are dotted here and there, pictures and posters and newspaper clippings line the walls, and Bob Knight and the chair, which he was famous for throwing, makes an appearance in more than one way. This is a major collection.
But as much fun as the inside of That Sandwich Place may be, it’s what’s on the menu that had our attention. If we have learned one thing, it’s that the shorter the menu, the better the food. Or, perhaps, we got that from one of those reality TV chef shows. Either way: it holds true.
This Bobby Knight shrine had a nice and short menu. You won’t find anything fancy in this small Indiana town restaurant, just excellent stick-to-your-ribs down home cooking.

Still–I had trouble deciding. My husband claimed and ordered the Biscuits and Gravy. I was tempted to try the Extra Elegant Eggs: two eggs, hot fried ham, on an English Muffin with cheese. I haven’t seen that before and it sounds good.
But Kid #1 and I ended up with the All American: two eggs over medium, toast, bacon (me) and sausage (him), and a plate of home fries. Kid #1 got a pancake.
Everything was absolutely delicious. My husband couldn’t stay out of my home fries and Kid #1 sure enjoyed his plate of them too. Crispy and golden, they are certainly memorable. So much so, in fact, that I am sitting here wishing I had a plate of them right now.
I think that word kind of sums up That Sandwich Place: memorable. From the friendly server to the Bobby Knight stuff all over the place to the simple and fun menu (it does have a way with words), everything about this Brown County restaurant is great and worth checking out.
I have yet to mention the interesting lunch options like The Upper Income Baloney Sandwich that comes complete with a a deviled egg or a Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich “made just like mom does.” I love a restaurant with a sense of humor.
That Sandwich Place in Nashville, Indiana is a delightful and unique breakfast option right downtown.
