“Calvin Fletcher's Coffee Company is located along the Indianapolis Cultural Trail, at 647 Virginia Ave. in Fletcher Place, a neighborhood in the southeast corner of downtown Indianapolis. Their walls and shelves are full of beautiful art and handmade goods from their neighbors around their community and beyond. Take a look and if anything catches your eye, you may purchase it directly from us. They don't take a ​commission, so all proceeds go directly to the artists and craftsmen themselves!”

“At Pure Eatery, we begin every morning by making our own soups and dressings from scratch. We are honored to use local providers such as Amazing Potato Chip Co.®, Lick®, Fountain Square Brewing Co.®, and others. In keeping with the rich artistic history of this area, we feature art work from local artists. Our friendly and attentive staff is one of the finest in the city. Whether you are looking for a quick lunch, a select wine with a healthy and satisfying dinner, or just relaxing with a cocktail after work, we are happy to provide you with fast and efficient service. Our spacious private dining area is perfect for business meetings, graduation parties, showers, birthday parties, or the next big game with your friends. In addition, we believe that minimizing our impact on the environment is not only a responsible social practice but also a viable and profitable way of doing business. We have chosen to recycle what we use, as well as using bio-degradable products as our to-go ware.”
