Dinner and first dates go hand-in-hand, since both begin with bubbly chit-chat and end abruptly when someone falls asleep or gets a chocolate éclair smashed in the face. Avoid dinner-date pitfalls with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of homestyle cuisine at 3 Sisters Cafe in Broad Ripple Village.
Recently spotlighted by Metromix Indianapolis as one of the city's best options for vegetarians, 3 Sisters Cafe sates vores both carni- and herbi- with a menu of inventive dishes forged from fresh, local ingredients. Featured on the "Signature Sandwiches" episode of Food Network's Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, the D'nai sandwich soundtracks lunchtime masticators with Shakespearean soliloquies as they vanquish its midsection of slow-roasted ham and braised kale ($11). For breakfast, toast the wholesome marriage of lemon corncakes and fresh seasonal berries before ending it with a delectable digestive annulment ($8.50). Otherwise, demonstrate fungi fidelity with the vegan portobello burger for dinner ($8.50), or defy meal orthodoxy with a late-evening dollop of decadent vanilla-cream french toast ($5.25, breakfast served all day).
3 Sisters Café's inviting pastel decor and charming wooden floors accompany white tablecloths, embellishing the homey ambiance of this 115-year-old townhouse. Settle cloud-formation disputes on the breezy patio, or keep a wary eye on circling hot-air balloons of prey through the long windows, which lend the dining room a warm, natural glow.
- Absolutely wonderful place for breakfast/brunch! The food is fresh and delicious. – JenInIndy, Citysearch
- This place, oh I love this place. I actually look forward to every visit. It's quirky, wobbly and warm. The staff is the friendliest group of girls you could ask for and so are the patrons. – RJ W., Yelp, 3/9/11
