If you’re looking for a quick bite to eat before work in the morning, or grabbing a cup of coffee to take with you along the Monon Trail, GoldLeaf Savory & Sweet has all of this and more.
Owners Kristine and John-Christian Bockman have refined their vision for the space and made it into an inviting atmosphere, with hanging plants enveloping customers as they wait for their coffee, local art on display, and a blue accent wall to tie the design and vibe of the space together.
The community around GoldLeaf has shown its support throughout the pandemic, and in turn GoldLeaf provides space to exhibit local art that can be purchased. The people living around GoldLeaf see the business as mutually beneficial in a way that John-Christian describes as “contagious, and the support of the community has created a barbershop mentality where we can connect with our regulars.”
Even though they opened right before the pandemic took hold throughout the U.S., business hasn’t slowed down, and getting to know regular customers has helped them plant roots and make connections.
“The community has shown their support, and we love establishing relationships with our regulars,” Kristine says.
GoldLeaf’s name comes from the owners’ motto, “Stay Gold, Indy,” as well as their dedication to providing quality food and keeping community in mind. The takeout-based menu includes coffee, seasonal drinks, wine, local beer, and breakfast and lunch items all day starting at 7 a.m. Nothing on the menu exceeds $10, and the owners are proud to serve food made with quality ingredients at a low price. Outdoor seating at GoldLeaf is expected to be open in early spring.
GoldLeaf Savory & Sweet is located at 1901 East 46th Street in Indianapolis. You can reach them by phone at 317-600-3542, and visit their website at goldleafindy.com for menu offerings and hours of operation.
