Indy – Henry’s Coffee Bistro

I’ve driven past Henry’s Coffee Bistro many times when working downtown.  I had some work to get done before visiting one of my clients and needed somewhere to work for a while.  Since I was driving down East St it seemed like a good time to check out Henry’s.  The free parking on the north side of the building was a big plus since there was NO street parking to be found in the area.

I was a little surprised that the place was empty at 9:30 am and so was Mike the lone employee behind the counter.  We had a pleasant conversation and he proceeded to tell me about the place and some of their offerings.  I settled on a sausage and egg croissant and an Americano coffee.

The Bistro has a nice variety of food and drinks and the walls are covered with interesting artwork that can be purchased.  The location on East Street just south of Mass Ave, and adjacent to the Nestle Inn, makes it a little hard to find the first time (if you’re not familiar with the area).

The sandwich was much bigger than I was expecting and it hit the spot.  The coffee was served in a large ceramic mug and was perfectly prepared.  Before I left another small group came in for what looked like a meeting/interview but other than that the place was pretty quiet and not busy at all.  I hope it’s just because of the inclement weather we were having at the time because I’d hate to see this place go out of business.

I’m always looking for nice little places to tuck into and get some work done between meetings, or just to get out of the office and have a nice change of pace.  I’ve had my share of meetings at the Coffee Chain’s and will always choose something local if I have the option.  The vibe and atmosphere are always better.

Henry’s is open for breakfast and lunch daily and I’ve been told the place is pretty busy for Brunch on the weekends.  If you’re in the area check it out and let me know what you think!
