Best Breakfast in Indianapolis! Hands down! I must say that I am not a mustard fan. I was really suspicious of an omelet with ham, Swiss, grainy mustard, and onion. However, I figure that with so many people recommending this place, and it's always packed, that they have to, absolutely have to, know what they are doing... and they soooo do! The mustard added the right enhancement to the flavor. It was brilliant! I also had a fruit and yogurt cup (although it was huge I cannot imagine how big the bowl size is.) At $5, I thought it was a bargain. I also noticed since I have worked hospitality that they are very conscious of allergens. The fruit that they served is separated by allergen. The pineapple, grapes, oranges, and apples are together b/c not too many people are allergic to those fruits. However the cut strawberries, melons, and blueberries all were in separate containers so to not spoil the fruit for those who want to avoid a certain one. That seems little, but for a restaurant to take the time to make little differences is definitely what separates a five star experience from a four. I love the down home, straightforward simpleness of this location. The cook is busy preparing everything right at the diner counter. Nothing is hidden. You see the food prepared just as you would at home in an immaculately clean environment. It was one gentleman's duty just to keep the kitchen and dining area spotless and set, plus he was very good at keeping out of the way as well. Our server was super knowledgeable, although if you just sat at the counter, you would see everything prepared right in front of you as well. After an average morning you'd have a pretty good idea of everything that is freshly prepared on the menu. Overall, I was very pleased by the experience. I will be back on more lazy mornings off

This is a fun restaurant if you're wanting something different from the usual. As everyone said, they serve tapas, or small plates. This makes it fun because you can try several different things without being overwhelmed with quantity. My boyfriend and I went for dinner last night, and ended up getting about 5 small plates and 1 dessert. We were both stuffed and everything was delicious. They also have lots of good drinks, although all of their martinis are $7.50, so a few of those added up fairly quickly, but I think it's expected pricing for a restaurant downtown. The 2 drinks I had were yummy though, one was champagne mixed with wild berry liquer and the other had midori, pinapple, chambord and vanilla vodka. We started out with the goat cheese and tomato dip, which was delicious. It was also a very big portion, and could definitely be shared by more than 2 people. We also had the garlic chicken wings, which had a good flavor and were crispy like they should be. Next my boyfriend had fried artichokes and I got a beef skewer. The meat was super tender and juicy. They don't ask you how you want it cooked, however, and a couple bites were pretty rare for me, but my boyfriend enjoyed eating those bites. We also had two mini tapas they had on a 'dollar menu' of sorts. He got a chorizo stuffed olive and cheese filled cherry peppers, and I had fried mahon cheese, which was a very yummy cheese stick essentially. Everything had great flavor and was filling. We ended with the tres leches cake, which was creamy, moist and divine. I would eat a plate of just the topping and caramel sauce alone. We wanted to try their version of the creme brulee which is supposed to be fantastic, but they were out. We had a great waitress who made good recommendations and was very friendly the whole night.
This is on the North side of 82nd Street, in front of the Castleton Square mall. It's on the back (North) side of a little out-lot, so you can't see it from 82nd street. You can see "Casual Male" from the street, and Kabob Korner is directly behind it, on the other side of that building. Look for the National City Bank, and turn North there, as if you're going into the mall. Then go right (East), and it's just past Long John Silver's. They close from 2:00pm to 5:00pm, so remember that when you visit. You walk up to the counter to place your order and pay. They bring your food out to your table on a tray and plastic plates. You have to get your own plastic utensils, napkins, and water from the counter. Menu is limited, and posted on a board behind the counter. Kabobs come in sirloin beef, lamb, ground beef, and chicken, and then there are three other entrees. Entrees come with side of long grain rice (basmati I think) and small dinner salad. I really liked the dressing on the salad. Drinks include ice water (self serve), and bottled water/soda/tea, and hot coffee. Prices are good and food quality is worth going out of your way for. It's kind of set up on a fast-food arrangement, so the overall "dining experience" isn't impressive, but the food does impress. The owner works as the cashier, cook, and waiter, and is very personable. Dining area and men's room were very clean.
