Café opens in former Fort Harrison building

May 20th, 2012 | by Eat Drink Indy | News

Café Audrey, 9134 Otis Ave, opened recently in an historic building that was once a blacksmith shop at the former Fort Benjamin Harrison. The building, built in 1908 and on the National Register of Historic Places, features wood floors, exposed brick walls and an appealing, casual ambience.

The breakfast-and-lunch spot focuses on such homemade fare as pancakes, French toast, fried potatoes, hand-breaded tenderloins, shrimp po-boy sandwiches and fish tacos on Fridays. A Spanish dog is made with a 60-year-old recipe from the B & K West restaurant in Peru, Ind.

The restaurant is owned by Tammy Cunningham, a former federal government employee and former member of the Air Force Reserves. The café is named for Cunningham’s mother, who died two years ago.

“She was always pushing me to follow my dream,” Cunningham said in a recent release. “She truly believed that I would be able to successfully open a café one day.”

Café Audrey is open from 6:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. For more information, go to
