For starters, you will find fantastic atmosphere. Grab a seat at the variety of tables and chairs. Enjoy the local art hung all over the walls. It is really incredible.

Gawk in wonder at the bookshelves that look so real you won’t believe it is paint. Cozy up to the electric fireplace in a cushy chair. Enjoy freebie WiFi. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the small Indiana town ambiance.

Then…notice the menu. Yes, there are a ton of different beverages on here. Coffees of all kinds from cappuccino to lattes to things for non coffee drinkers like orange juice and sweet tea.

Customize your drink with a flavor shot of English Toffee, Toasted Marshmallow, Chocolate, Vanilla Bean, or Banana and so many more. Or try something a little different and enjoy one of almost twenty unique combinations. The Milky Way: chocolate, caramel, and french vanilla or Smooth Sailing, White Chocolate and Caramel.

But the star of this Indiana coffee shop has got to be the homemade food. Locals rave about the chicken salad but you know how we do things for Little Indiana. My husband, Jeremy Nunemaker, and I were in the mood for a snack. We had just had a grand tour of the downtown. We had even had lunch. But after all of that walking and–who am I kidding? I am always up for dessert.

He had a cookie. Really, he only had that cookie so he could try to dip it into his coffee. As for me, well, I had an amazing slice of pie. My image does not do it justice but don’t worry, because I am totally up for a revisit and a retake. Hey, it’s research. It was a mile-high sort of pie. It had sparkles on top of it. I don’t even know what that was, but it was gorgeous. I am curious to try some of their other creations.
