Located on historic Massachusetts Ave., in the heart of the arts district, this restaurant is unlike any other.
Opened in August of 2002, Scholars Inn is a 310-seat restaurant complete with two custom bars, two private dining spaces, an outdoor back patio with a 17-feet, dual directional fireplace and plenty of private parking in the heart of downtown Indy.
This "second generation" Gourmet Cafe and Wine Bar is a historic renovation gem. The century old 2-story building is located in downtown Indianapolis' Massachusetts Avenue arts district, an active corridor of galleries, theaters, shops, restaurants, and bars.
Whether it is for lunch, dinner, late night desserts or our Champagne Sunday Brunch, at the Scholars Inn, it’s all about having a great time while you dine.
In a nutshell, Scholars Inn Gourmet Cafe and Wine Bar is eclectic (menu mix of influences), gourmet (staples from meatloaf to chops prepared uniquely), art (food presentation, atmosphere), and value (entrees $13 - $36 including starch and vegetable; not a la carte). Further add hard working employees, an award winning wine list and a fun; unpretentious setting and you get a locally owned restaurant unique to Indianapolis.
