Coffee Guide

The Indianapolis Coffee Guide is a curated guide to exploring & discovering Indy's coffee community.



"...somewhere between a coffee shop and a cocktail bar."

The jury is unanimous on this one — Gavel is guilty of being one of Indy's best new coffee shops. And it's unique twist on the cafe experience demands your full attention.

The Coffee

Listen, take a couple clicks around this website, and you'll see how much we love Tinker Coffee. They're definitely one of our favorites in the city. So it's no surprise their beans are gracing the shelves and the grinders at Gavel.

Gavel's unique twist? You won't find any espresso-based drinks at Gavel, probably because you won't find an espresso machine. Mastermind Daniel Herndon (you know, like MilesHERNDON), wanted to create a created, handmade pour-over experience. And by george, that's what they've done.

The Cocktails

The Food

Fountain Square is such a tight-knit, inviting community, and Gavel is embracing this to its fullest. The food menu is petite, and it's curated with only the freshest, hyper-local ingredients (like Amelia's Bread and the Gallery Pastry Shop, to name a few).

Closing Arguments

It's a good day to be in Fountain Square, folks. The team members at MilesHerndon have really outdone themselves.

And by now it should go without saying, but make sure to follow @gavel.indy on Instagram, and tag @indianapoliscoffee in all of your coffee posts to be featured.
