About Us

We are a local, independently-owned coffee shop, founded in 2004. Our diverse and international flair offers a unique experience in the heart of Broad Ripple. Our coffee beans are roasted on site and all breads and pastries are baked in-house. Vegetarian quiche, panini sandwiches, pretzel sandwiches and an assortment of bagels are just some of the items on our menu. Fresh-baked artisan breads can be purchased on Saturdays. German pastries are offered daily with fancier choices at Sunday afternoon's Kaffeeklatsch.

What Our Customers Are Saying About Us:

Perk Up is one of a kind. Very good food and coffee, with a homey atmosphere, and you can bring your dog! Great place to spend a Saturday morning with friends. Total laid back Broad Ripple vibe.

This place is incredibly cozy inside, and the coffee is fantastic. The only problem with this place is that I wish it were open later. But it's a good sign when the only negative about a place is that you literally can't get enough of it. Non-dairy milk available, so vegans and the lactose-intolerant crowd can get their fancy drinks. And it's right off the Monon trail if that caffeine buzz inspires you to get moving. Really lovely overall.

If you haven't been to Perk Up for their Sunday Cakes, you are missing out. All of their cakes, breads, rolls cookies are in house made. Nothing is mass produced and is hand crafted. They also sell their items on the Broad ripple Farmers Market.

We hand-craft and bake in small batches to improve texture and develop superior flavor. This is what Brotgarten is all about.

We proudly roast the blends that make up each and every delectable cup of coffee or espresso we serve. Enjoy your very own hand-crafted cup today.

Our Italian-made Victoria Arduino is so beloved by espresso professionals. Its lever delivery system ensures a high level of customization of the drink, but at the same time requires a high level of competence on the part of the barista. The materials used for the internal and external components make the espresso machine particularly exquisite. The bodywork, completely hammered by hand by expert craftsmen, is an expression of uniqueness and tradition that is also reflected in the final cup, a perfect espresso.


The world is full of incredible coffee. And we love that it's our job to roast and share our favorites with you! We bring you vibrant coffees from all around the world.
