The space at Quills Coffee in Downtown Indy reminds me a lot of college, but in a good way. Maybe it’s because the space is nestled in the lobby of an urban apartment building or maybe because they keep the atmosphere very youthful. Either way, they serve up some of the best espresso downtown that is worth the going out of your way for.
When you visit Quills, we highly recommend sitting at one of the few spots at the bar, which is right where they make the drinks. The baristas welcome all visitors to sit and chat - about coffee or anything - and they are happy to explore the world of coffee with you.
If anyone tells you Quills is based out of Louisville, they are wrong, and you can tell them I said so. Sure, their original cafe location is south of the Ohio River, but the real magic happens in New Albany where they do all of their roasting. For that, we will always count them as an Indiana roaster.
