Located on the east side of Indianapolis, The Legend Classic Irvington Cafe has been a popular spot for casual diners since opening in 2003. Accessible during lunch and dinner hours Tuesday through Saturday, the neighborhood eatery sits at the far west end of a one-story, multi-tenant building near the corner of Layman and Washington Street. Limited street-side parking is an option, but the Legend Classic also shares a spacious rear lot with other businesses. Inside, there are two separate dining areas; one has a classic traditional feel thanks to walls that boast a variety of paintings and white cloth-covered tables. The east side dining area is a bit more casual with quaint tables and booths. Sandwiches include classics such as turkey, roast beef and ham, wraps and two versions of a sloppy joe. Dinner plates feature seafood, beef tenderloin, chicken, meatloaf and pork.
The people behind PEARings Frozen Yogurt and Beyond believe that simple can be delicious, and they work hard to ensure that their dishes use the purest ingredients available. Their certified real-dairy yogurt and greek yogurt contains at least four types of live and active cultures rather than the long-dead Phoenician culture, and their fruit toppings have never been frozen. They use Arabica coffee grown without pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers, and wraps are made with meats and vegetables from local farms. The company says it's trying to "[redefine] the self-serve frozen yogurt concept" with indulgent flavors—sea salt caramel pretzel and Tahitian vanilla are favorites—high-quality ingredients, and a slew of non-yogurt offerings for breakfast and lunch.
