We wanted to support one of our local restaurants in Noblesville today, so chose Uptown Cafe. We ordered through an online app and it was ready to be picked up in 20 minutes. The food was awesome and the gal inside greeted me by name even though I had never been there before! Definitely will order again.

If you have never tried breakfast for carry out, try Uptown Cafe on Binford. It was my wife's birthday and with the state wide shut down for indoor dining, Uptown Cafe was able to provide us with a little upscale in our morning breakfast with take out. As my wife just told me, "Yummy!" She chose the Ham & Cheese Quiche and I had their Spinach, Feta & Tomato Quiche. We thought these would be great choices to take home, and were we right! Along with the quiche we both chose the fresh fruit as our sides. All I can say is, "Excellent, or more like it, Eggcellent!

Well done Reuben. Thin sliced corned beef with generous helping of sauerkraut. No soggy sandwich!! Stop by and carry out today!

Place is amazing!!! Food is always fresh and cooked perfectly! My eggs are always just right! The homemade breads and about every sauce or dressing is just amazing. I think they have the best eggs Benedict I have ever had just amazing homemade hollandaise sauce! I don't think I can get a better breakfast burrito anywhere! Everything I have ever order is amazing! A place everyone must try and go!

One of the best hidden gems in Indy. It’s great to go somewhere with such a friendly, attentive, and welcoming wait staff. Great food, great prices, great atmosphere. My coffee cup was always full and so was I after eating here.

Matt Hammond

The best breakfast in the city. Absolutely amazing. Incredible place. The only possible criticism is that for some crazy reason they try to make their own ketchup, which has never worked in the history of restaurants. Nevertheless- 10 out of 10.

Very friendly staff. Warms my heart because both times I've gone, I've seen elderly patrons getting helped by the staff beyond what other restaurants would do (helping to restroom, etc). Great job, staff! Very yummy food as well! Definitely will continue to visit!

Bob Cross

Great service and food. They offer a good variety of straight diner food or fancier dishes. And, my coffee cup never got below half full.

Tommy Crowe

Literally the best breakfast place in Indy. Order the breakfast burrito because it is glorious and the people should know.

I hold a weekly meeting that can vary in ssize from 3 to 10 or more. It difficult to find a restaurant that will happily seat us when we don't know the size of the group. Elaena and Miranda welcome us with open arms and we truly appreciate all they do. The food is great the atmosphere is very friendly. Lots of homemade stuff and the BBEdit OJ in the city!

Fantastic place!!! Great food and great/friendly staff. I am happy to have found this place, hidden gem for sure! Do yourself a favor and pop in for good quality, homemade food. Try their cinnamon rolls, you won't be disappointed!

Home cooked food.

I had high hopes but the food was below average for breakfast food. I live very close so I will go back just to see if maybe it was what I ordered that was not so good.

I thought it would be a nice place to stop by for breakfast this morning on my way to work since it's close to my boyfriend's work. When we came in, the hostess got us to our table, was very friendly and nice. It was great until we got our food. We both ordered eggs benedict with hash browns. Everything came out right but there was a feather and hair on one of my eggs and it looked like a little rock in my ham. I will never be coming back here again.

My boyfriend and I just tried Uptown Cafe on Binford and it was amazing! Cece was our waitress and she was so sweet and fast! Thank you Cece!! Also the food was delicious! Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a hometown diner atmosphere and friendly service!

Came at lunch time with a group. Service was awkward, as in no one wanted our table? It was strange especially since it was not busy. The restaurant also seemed dirty, foggy glasses, sticky silverware, stained plates and the food was just bad. It was very similar to hospital food. Slightly warm, bland flavor, and just sad. We came here because our first choice was too busy and we really should have just waited at the other restaurant. Would not come back even for a free meal.

Excellent food and great service

Paul Horth

And they have really good food

Jenn Zen

Neighborhood feel, small and welcoming. Breakfast was good, though the quiche crust was heavy and the cinnamon roll was a little dry. Corned beef hash browns were really good and perfectly cooked.

Excellent customer service, great food. We will definitely go again!

Andrew McDonald

Delicious fresh squeezed orange juice, huge omelettes and good service.

Tried it a second time to give it a fair chance. Biscuits & Gravy are so-so. Sheet biscuits instead of individual home made ones and not enough gravy. I had to order an additional small bowl @ $2.50 as well as add pepper and hot sauce to make it palatable. So far, Denver omelette was only fair; quiche was dry and tasteless, hash browns were bland frozen food variety. Coffee is good, unsweetened tea is slightly bitter. I'll not return.

Uptown Cafe is a welcomingly unpretentious breakfast/brunch/lunch eatery in a small strip mall in north-northeast Indianapolis just off Binford Boulevard at 64th Street. A small but adequate private lot provides convenient parking right at the front door. The dining area is one medium-sized clean and bright rectangular space with seating for about fifty customers at booths, tables, and a few counter stools. There is one muted TV behind the counter and recorded music playing quietly in the background throughout. I was immediately greeted in a friendly manner upon entering at approximately 7:30 on a recent Thursday morning, seated, and quickly served my requested coffee. From the generous and reasonably priced menu I ordered eggs benedict, biscuits and gravy, and a side of hash browns. It was all served up in about five minutes. My server was identified on the ticket as Miranda. She was the one person working front of house and she did so quite capably: greeting customers, taking orders, and delivering food from the kitchen. My coffee cup never got more than half empty before she was back to top it up. The food was all excellent. The thick hollandaise sauce and equally thick gravy were both special delights. Uptown Cafe is a place well worth seeking out.

delicious home made food and great service

Great breakfast or lunch place, has counter seating, tables and booths, has high chairs and booster seats, and a changing table as well, so really great place for kids. Menu was large and thoughtful, we all got something different and all liked our meal. Kid’s menu had the same things as the adult menu but in smaller portions, which is always nice. Prices were higher than the breakfast place down the street (Just Judy’s) but same as other breakfast places around town and the quality more than justified it. Servers were great. Just found our new breakfast place!

Steve Schilling

Uptown Cafe makes EVERYTHING from scratch including bread, croissants and their daily quiche special. My husband said it was the best breakfast he has ever had! The staff is friendly and efficient!

They had good coffee but high pice to eat

Tried this breakfast spot for the first time today and we didn't start out very impressed. We sat for awhile before anyone came to offer us drinks, and not because the restaurant was busy; the servers just appeared busy socializing with friends. My husband ordered the breakfast burrito and I got a breakfast bowl. We would both say they were just ok. Not bad at all, but nothing that makes you excited about coming back. I got sausage gravy on my bowl and it was an odd gray color that put me off a bit. However, the coffee cake muffin was wonderful! Warm, fresh and delicious! We would probably give it another shot and try something different on the menu.
