SoBro Cafe wants you to enjoy great tasting, interesting, wonderful food. Our internationally-inspired dishes are healthy and our plates come back to the kitchen clean! We have a range of selections for every taste, from steak eaters to vegetarians and vegans to guests on gluten-free diets. Please see our menu on our website, or call to find out what our dinner specials are, or better yet- come in and experience our food! Chef Jenxie creates all of our food from scratch (except our breads and sweet potato fries) and this includes all our sauces, soups, dressings and even our ketchup. Our dining room is filled with local art- all available for immediate sale, with 100% of the money going directly to the artist. Our staff is also creative, featuring two art gallery curators, two visual artists currently displaying work in Indianapolis, four performing musicians, and a fire spinner.
