Feature Friday: Know thy neighbor

Indianapolis' City Cafe lives by a few simple guidelines: "Downtown food, farm-fresh ingredients. We support family farms and local growers. Life is better when you know your neighbors!"

When every recipe starts that way, the breakfast and lunch plates that come out of City Cafe's kitchen are sure to satisfy on all levels. And that's important to owner and cook Brad Royal who's been buying from local, all-natural producers since the cafe opened over a decade ago, even when the crop was significantly thinner than today's Central Indiana cornucopia. From the Amish-farmed oats from Montezuma, Indiana, that Brad uses for his award winning granola to the local eggs that top the made-from-scratch Roast Beef Hash, City Cafe brings the farm to the city one delicious plate at a time.

Their commitment to delicious, local, all-natural goods brings another local meat treat to their menu. City Cafe's BLT Wrap puts Smoking Goose Apple Wood Smoked Bacon into a delicious bed of lettuce, tomato, and avocado before the lots gets slathered with chipotle mayo. The spice and creaminess of the sauce gets a spike from the sweet, salty bacon for a local BLT that's OMG delicious.
