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.
