Our Favorites: A Few of the Best Meridian Kessler Restaurants

by Lisa Treadwell

In addition to our expertise in helping people buy and sell houses across the Indianapolis area (including houses for sale in Meridian Kessler), we - the hungry troubadours of The Indy Real Estate Experts - like to think of ourselves as experts in great food and dining experiences.

As such, I thought we'd put together a quick list of some of the best food and restaurants in the Meridian Kessler area.

FYI, these are not full "reviews"; just a quick note on some of their highlights:

4907 N College Ave
Indianapolis, IN 46205

A bit of a Broad Ripple atmosphere and a definite feel of trendy and cool rather than "intimate." Which, of course, is fine depending on your mood. This treat is quite unique:

Egg Salad Tartine 
Iberico ham, frisée and pine nuts

4923 N College Ave

They're known as a hockey and beer bar, but move beyond that traditional "working class" mode with a bit of a hipster vibe and even a big selection of vegan items. Essentially, it's a menu that will satisfy parties with both vegans and carnivores in the group.

Smoked Pork Salad

653 E. 52nd Street

Chai and chai tea are a big part of the ambiance of this relatively new gem in Meridian Kessler. The Thai Coconut Soup is a big hit as is the brunch favorite, the SoBro Skillet.

Kale, goat cheese, braggs, and free range eggs make up the SoBro skillet

5215 N College Ave

Everyone loves brunch here, but you can't go wrong at any time of the day. Incredible Latin American cuisine ranging from Dominican to Peruvian to Cuban to Ecuadorian and beyond!

Scallop Tacos...chile-orange scallops, jicama pico, cucumber-basil purée, radishes, & balsamic onions
