Coffee shops are not just for WiFi and coworking. This Fletcher Place coffee shop has walls adorned with local art that rotates frequently to make you feel at home.

Plus your money is going to a good cause, as 100 percent of proceeds are donated back to the neighborhood.
There’s buzz around Bee Coffee Roasters, a coffee shop in downtown Indianapolis that is serious about coffee.
