At the table with Anna


Where to go: The Well Coffeehouse Fishers

Address: 8890 E. 116th St., Suite 120, Fishers

What to get: The Tryptofan-Tastic

Price: $7.50

Anna’s take: The Well is an excellent place to visit for coffee, lunch or good conversation. Most weeks, I visit the quaint, rustic little coffeehouse in downtown Fishers at least once. It’s an excellent place to work for a while or order a mid-afternoon pick-me-up.

I typically visit The Well for its coffee and its incredible mission – using profits to build wells in Africa, hence the name – but I tried the lunch items the other day and enjoyed my experience. Items are inexpensive, tasty and filling. I ordered the Tryptofan-Tastic, a turkey, provolone, tomato, spinach and bruschetta sandwich on grilled sourdough bread. Choose a side of chips to go with the sandwich.  I recommend the sriracha and honey Dirty Potato Chips, cooked kettle-style to make them crunchy and satisfying.

Apart from its mission, another thing I appreciate the The Well is, even though it’s always packed with people, the customers are so kind. On my recent visit, there were not open tables. A woman noticed me searching for a place to sit. She offered to share her space with me, and although I had never met her, we talked for 30 minutes about our respective lives and Thanksgiving plans. Kindness like that can really turn a person’s day around, and that kind of kindness thrives at The Well.

Suggested pairings: All of The Well’s coffee drinks are excellent, but I love the traditional drip coffee. If you have a sweet tooth, try the “Here It Is,” The Well’s take on a pumpkin spice latte.
