Le Peep Restaurant is an Indianapolis favorite, and now a Yerkes favorite too with a cozy atmosphere, great tasting and affordable food, and great service!
I can’t say enough good about Le Peep. We had a late breakfast at Le Peep on our second day in Indianapolis, and everyone loved the food SO much, we ended up eating there a second time before heading out of Indy on our way to our next stop.
Let’s talk about the food!
We ordered breakfast foods. We got pancakes, french toast, and a breakfast skillet called Beach Combers Skillet. The food came up quickly, was hearty, and exactly what you would picture if someone told you Grandma was in the back cooking.
The Beach Combers Skillet had potatoes, cheese, sun dried tomatoes, avocado, and egg, and a whole lot of yum! I was super happy with the breakfast skillets, and the next day I tried the Gypsy version. The potatoes were perfectly cooked, the flavors spot on, and all in all it was tasty and filling.
But the real show stopped for our group was the Chocolate Chip Pancakes from the kid’s menu. They were Mickey Mouse shaped, and came with fresh whipped butter, powdered sugar, and of course chocolate chips!
My kids scarfed them down, and all ordered them the next day because they enjoyed them so much. And I loved that they were filled up and not begging for snacks and treats all day while we enjoyed the White River State Park and NCAA Hall of Champions. I am sure everything on the menu is great. So let’s talk about the atmosphere. Sometimes I hate taking my kids out to eat because, being kids, they spill, they talk loud, and they don’t really fit in at “fancy” places.
While Le Peep was nice, it had vinyl table cloths, and a comfortable feel. My kids felt so grown up getting glass cups, but when one spilled, the staff came by, cleaned it up with a smile, and didn’t make them feel bad about the mess.
Even my “big kid” sister enjoyed Le Peep, and ordered the Chocolate Chip Pancakes our second visit!
If you have a chance to visit Indianapolis, be sure to stop in. You get the diner feel, excellent service, an affordable menu (I think my meal was around $10, and the kid’s meals around $4), and most importantly great food.
We all left happy, even my Miss Grouchy, the terrible two!
Be sure to check back tomorrow to see the other fun places we played, and meals we ate on our visit to Indianapolis!
