Open since May of 2007, Bub’s Café – located off the Monon Trail in artsy Carmel, Indiana – has a simple motto: “If you can’t laugh at breakfast, go back to bed!”

This incredibly-popular breakfast and lunch spot is the sister restaurant to Bub’s Burgers, made famous by their great burgers and the “Big Ugly” which was featured on the Travel Channel’s “Man vs. Food.”

But the Café has earned kudos in its own right, delighting customers with their “Bub Holes” (their version of donut holes) made fresh and brought to the table still warm. Their granola is homemade, and every guest receives a complimentary “granola shooter” with their meal.

Lunches feature fresh-made bread from their very own Lucy’s Bakery, and locally-sourced foods include herbs that were grown in their own garden. Alongside traditional favorites like Belgian waffles, omelets, French toast, sandwiches, soups, and salads, diners can enjoy unique items like elk sausage and the Café Grilled Cheese seasoned with pesto and filled with roasted red peppers, melted Muenster and cheddar cheese. Be sure and ask what Chef Micah’s special menu features are on the weekend.

The Café even has its own signature coffee blend, and offers a large selection of gourmet tea.

The irresistible bright and sunny décor was developed with the help of Patty Costlow and Paulette Boncutter of Design Sense (also in the Carmel Arts and Design District), and helps ensure a delightful dining experience.
