Sweet Renovations at Greyhouse Coffee

Greyhouse Coffee is a spot loved by many Purdue students and visitors. Being one of the only local coffee shops around Purdue campus, this restaurant attracts long crowds and hungry students. After being closed for a short couple of months for major renovations, Greyhouse re-opened its doors in March of 2018.

I was able to check out the inside of Greyhouse for myself and it is truly stunning. They added more setting options, a brand new ordering station with a central location and a welcoming design. They still offer their classic lattes, teas and crepes but make sure to check then out in the coming weeks for the addition of gourmet donuts. My go-to drink at Greyhouse is the Masala Chai latte with almond milk. The caffeinated drink is a good alternative to drinking coffee, with spices like clove and cardamom that isn’t too sweet!

Greyhouse Coffee is conveniently located at 100 Northwestern Avenue, right on the corner of a multitude of restaurants in the West Lafayette area. Although they are known for their amazing coffee and lattes, they also offer a variety of tea options and smoothies. For food, they offer crepes, cakes, macaroons and gelato. They are known around campus for their variety of sweet and savory crepes, offering both regular and vegetarian options like the rooster crepe which is a local favorite!

During the warmer months, Greyhouse has outdoor seating. The renovation introduced some new indoor setting space as well to accommodate the students and guests who wish to study or sit and enjoy a drink on a chilly day. They are conveniently open from 7 AM and close at 12 AM; during some holidays, hours may change.

Make sure to stop on over and check out the new renovation for yourself! Purdue University Student and Visit Lafayette-West Lafayette Intern, Natalie, shares this blog.  For more information about Greyhouse Coffee and other coffee shops in our area, visit HomeOfPurdue.com.

Top Purdue Dining at Marriott Hall


Do you ever find yourself on campus wanting a nice place to eat in a relaxing, comfortable environment? Marriott Hall may be your new favorite spot. Marriott Hall is home to the students of Hospitality and Tourism Management, housing a sit down restaurant, a bistro quick service, a coffee shop and areas to study all within one academic building. The  building is adorned with tall windows, bringing in tons of natural light in the big open atrium area. During the week, you’ll find students and faculty studying in the atrium, grabbing a bite from the Boiler Bistro or a coffee from Lavazza.

Within Marriott Hall, you can dine or enjoy a variety of things.

  • The John Purdue Room
  • Boiler Bistro (with Urban Belly pop-up until the end of April)
  • Lavazza Coffee
  • Seating in the atrium
  • Upstairs lounging

If you are looking for a sit down restaurant

The John Purdue Room offers dining during both lunch and dinner, but make sure to reserve a spot just in case! The JPR acts as a part of a lab for students in the  Purdue hospitality program; certain times during the year they will offer cuisine special to a country that the students specially prepare. You can enjoy wine and beer there as well.

If you are looking for a quick bite to eat

The Boiler Bistro is a Marriott Hall classic. They offer everything from burgers, a daily special and soups for a reasonable price. This semester, Urban Belly (a Chicago based ramen shop) is featured in the bistro until late April.

If you are in need of a pick-me-up

Lavazza is a quick coffee shop right next to the atrium within Marriott Hall that offers everything from hot coffee to gelato. My favorite thing to get from Lavazza is an iced chai with non-dairy milk and sometimes I’ll snag a donut as well!

If you are looking for a new place to study on campus

As soon as you walk inside of Marriott Hall, you will find a wide range of seating to enjoy your coffee, catch up with a friend or study for your next exam. The windows are open and bright, bringing in a lot of natural light during the day. They also offer upstairs seating if the atrium is too full!

If you want to try a new cuisine on campus

Urban Belly, a Chicao based ramen shop, is featured at the Boiler Bistro until late April. They offer a select menu at the Bistro but it is worth a try. Urban Belly has brought three ramen options and three dumpling options to Purdue, both having vegetarian options as well.

Make visit to Marriott Hall this year!  For more information about these restaurants and more in Lafayette-West Lafayette visit, HomeOfPurdue.com.  This blog is shared by Natalie, Purdue University and Visit Lafayette-West Lafayette Intern.

Guacamole Flavor Explosion at Senor Tacos

Senor Tacos Combination Platter

Senor Tacos Combination Platter

Guacamole, salsa, tacos, enchiladas, fajitas, and tostadas! Yum! Oh, I’m getting hungry! Time to go to Senor Tacos! Where you can get all this and more!

Walking in the restaurant, you will notice the colorful, engraved tables and chairs which are fun to look at while waiting for your food to come. Of course, you are welcomed by a friendly server who brings you chips and salsa right away. We aren’t big salsa people so we tried their guacamole. Oh, it was so good! Smooth and creamy with just the right amount of chunks. Yum! I could just eat a whole bowl of guacamole and be happy!

Senor Tacos GuacamoleFor my meal, I ordered a sampler that came with an enchilada, tostada and a taco. I loved the taco as it comes on a corn tortilla instead of a flour tortilla like most places. Be sure to ask for extra toppings though as it only comes with the meat, onions and cilantro otherwise. I don’t know about you, but I prefer mine with some lettuce and cheese. Still loved it though! They are quite small so easy to try a few different types if you like as well. The tostada was amazing too! It was loaded with toppings yet the tortilla was still crunchy on the bottom. Perfect combination of textures and flavors. The enchilada was good but I preferred the other items. Maybe I was craving the crunch that day. Plus, I was getting incredibly full by the time I got to that part of my meal.

I can’t wait to go back and try some more items! Just must remember not to eat all day when I go and maybe wear my stretchy pants!

Corey had a meat lover’s calzone and Ashley had a deluxe pizza. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We decided to end our meal with fresh baklava. It was my first time having baklava and Parkway Pizza baklava exceeded my expectations! The baklava was very fresh and warm. It was a great treat to end our meal.

IMG_0923

After eating at Parkway Pizza, Ashley said “The hand tossed pizza crust is light and fluffy and the pizza is loaded with toppings. Best pizza I’ve had in a while. The baklava has generous portions and is perfectly sweet and flaky! My new favorite pizza place!”.

I recommend their french toast which is sweet yet savory, perfectly cut and cooked bacon, and light, fluffy eggs. My co-worker has shared they have amazing biscuits and gravy.

Dining Divas Swirl & Taste at Cellar 422

Cellar 422 Cheese and Meat Platter

Cellar 422 Cheese and Meat Platter

When Cellar 422 Wine Bar opened in September 2015 the owners/sisters, Michelle Wise & Marla Milner, wanted to offer something they felt was lacking in downtown Lafayette; a comfortable place to meet, enjoy a good glass of wine, and purchase a bottle to take home. Since then the menu has matured to include local and craft beers, appetizers and entrees, seasonal specials, and international cuisine.

For Michelle and Marla, the business is a real family effort. Ethan Wise, Michelle’s son, is the Cellar’s chef, trained in Santa Barbara at City College Culinary Program. The eclectic vintage décor and natural wood wine bar were influenced by Michelle and Marla’s parents and give the restaurant a familiar cozy feel.

Cellar 422 Diving Divas Group 2Best for small groups; the Wine Bar can seat 30, while the patio accommodates another 10 during warmer months. We chose to sit on the patio during our October visit. The exterior arched brick doorway and overhead string lights give an added charm to the space.

Our server, Colton, started us out with a large appetizer board that easily served our group of seven (Divas plus husbands Dan, Dick and Jeff). We combined the large cheese board with four cheeses, apple slices & green grapes, crackers and fig jam: $20, with the charcuterie board adding three meats and olives: $10.

  • Cheeses:

White cheddar, not too sharp; Gorgonzola camazole from Germany, with a smooth creamy blue cheese flavor; Gruyere from Wisconsin; and Butterkase from Germany, Bev’s favorite – smooth, highly pleasant cheese, soft, creamy and delish.

  • Meats:

Delaware fireball, definitely has a peppery kick said Jeff; Gin and juice (lamb persimmon orange), delightful taste, you can definitely pick up the orange; Sopressatta, a great basic next to the other two stronger flavored options.

DIning Diving Gigondas WineAfter taking Dan’s beer order, Colton lead us through an extensive wine menu offered both by the glass and bottle. It felt like a travel show with red and white wines from all over the world.

The four red wine members of our group selected one of Colton’s favorites: Fernandez Gomez (Crianza) 2013 from Rioja, Spain with red fruit, baking spices, soft tannin, balanced acidity and not overly dry. A very drinkable choice and good for a new red wine drinker. It was a great value at $20/bottle.

Our second shared bottle of red was The Ned, a New Zealand, Southern Valley, pinot noir, 2014. Bev reminisced about Eddard Stark (Ned) from Game of Thrones so she was biased to like it but it really was a good bottle of wine. Colton pointed out its flavors of “ripe cherries, and a reasonable amount of backgrounds of earth like a forest floor, kind of mushroomy and quite smooth.” Another good value at $28/bottle.

The white wine drinkers selected a South African Sauvignon Blanc- Rustenberg, “It’s a perfect drink for a warm night on the patio,” said Kay at $8/glass. Dick had the California Greystone Cellars Chardonnay at $7/glass. It was an incredible value for the experience, fairly dry and a generous pour!

With our appetizer plate emptied, we selected one last bottle of red wine to enjoy with our dinner order. Colton suggested one of their best, Gigondas, a French Rhone Valley blend, very potent, dry, with concentrated flavors at $42/bottle. This wine is slightly sweeter. “It’s a subtle, smooth and satisfying sip,” says Jeff. “I don’t like the French, but this is good,” added Brit Dick.

Salad, shrimp and tomatoes

Blackened Shrimp Salad

For dinner, Bev chose the blackened shrimp salad made up of arugula, roasted sweet corn, cherry tomato, bacon, shallots and sage dressing (gluten free) for $12. “I love the dressing– it’s inventive and refreshing,” she said.

Jo ordered the salsa verde swordfish with tomatillo salsa and sweet corn sofrito, roasted Anaheim chilies, poblano cream and toasted pumpkin seeds for $21. “It’s a beautiful presentation with the fish perfectly done,” Jo said, “and the pepper and pumpkin seeds and sauce are perfect for this dish.”

Salsa verde swordfish

Dick ordered up the spicy shrimp mac & cheese which featured blackened seasoned shrimp, cavatappi, white cheddar Moran sauce, with panko crust for $12. “I don’t usually like mac and cheese but I love theirs. It’s spicy and fun to eat,” Dick said. “I’m not really keen on blackened things but it’s well done with tons of shrimp.”

Mac N Cheese

Kay ordered the smoked salmon plate served with sliced cucumbers & cherry tomatoes, capers, garlic hummus, dill goat cheese and artisan crackers for $14. This is part of the appetizer menu but works well as an entree. The salmon is mild and tender and delicious. There are two spreads– a garlic hummus and dill goat cheese– both are good.  “That’s a hunka hunka salmon,” said Jeff.

Risotto

Pesto Orzo & Meatballs

Jeff opted for the pesto orzo & meatballs with artichoke hearts, parmesan, pine nuts and arugula for $18. “Anyone can make a meatball but these are a cut above,” said Jeff. With a crisp exterior and moist inside, Jeff was pleased by its hearty flavor. “The dish is balanced beautifully by the pesto orzo, and tender artichoke heart, with a nice crunch from the pine nuts. It’s delightful.”

Dan decided on the ginger pork gyoza featuring ginger marinated pork wonton dumplings, steamed napa cabbage and ponzu for $8. “Very tasty,” Dan said between bites. “The light noodles with the ginger sauce makes for a nice flavor. It’s excellent.”

Margy opted for the risotto alla mulligatawny including Granny Smith apples, curried, red lentils, parmesan and toasted almonds for $14. “Incredible,” Margy reports, “There is a little sweetness because of the apples but it’s also savory. The chef was not timid with the spice.” A new favorite for Margy!

“Did anyone leave room for dessert?” Colton smiled. We soon learned all the desserts are house made and include a truffle board, cheesecake of the day, and crème brulee. In the end we shared a slice of dark chocolate peanut butter cheesecake for $6. “Wonderfully creamy” said Jo. “The dark chocolate and peanut butter mix is just awesome on a very thin crust. It’s not overly sweet.  It’s fabulous.”

Dessert!

Dessert!

Altogether, it was a delightful experience. Everything was very well prepared and presented. The food prices were reasonable and in line with other restaurants in town. Our final impression? Wonderful, but next time, dessert first!

Be Reclaimed at Sacred Grounds


Located two miles from Purdue campus, and just a short drive from downtown Lafayette is a hidden treasure known as Sacred Grounds [Reclaimed].  It’s a quiet and cozy coffee shop that is the perfect environment to spend time on homework, catch up with friends, and enjoy a delicious cup of coffee.

drink3Sacred Grounds is not your typical coffee shop; it is a non-profit coffee shop with a purpose. By partnering with Harvest Bible Chapel, Sacred Grounds has created a space that promotes community, builds ministry, and encourages relationships. With more plans for re-purposing space upstairs into a Reclaimed House for Women, this coffee house and café truly cares for the community and those who live in it.

One of the central themes surrounding Sacred Grounds is the “reclaimed” aspect. Everything in the shop has been reclaimed from somewhere else, and this gives a homey and natural feel. The furniture is vintage and distressed, and the lights are antique. Exposed brick reveals the history of the building, and all of the décor combined sincerely showcases a welcoming and vintage coffee house that is open to all. Feeling welcome is a common aspect of spending and enjoying time at Sacred Grounds.

ReclaimedWith a student discount, a stage for live music, and a heart for the community, Sacred Grounds is an excellent choice for anybody looking to drink hot, fresh coffee, enjoy a tasty lunch, and spend quality time with friends and family. It genuinely is a one-of-a-kind coffee house.

1940’s & 50’s Dining at Route 66 Diner

oursideYou may be wondering, does Route 66 go through West Lafayette? What does it have to do with Indiana? The answer is no, it doesn’t go through West Lafayette and it has nothing to do with Indiana. Then why do we have a restaurant named after it? Well, Route 66 Diner and Triple XXX Family Restaurant have the same owners. They chose the name because Route 66, “the Mother Road” became official in 1926 and the Triple XXX Thirst Station in West Lafayette, opened in 1929. They wanted to stay with the same vintage feel for the second location.

IMG_3707[1]Route 66 has counter seats like Triple XXX but also have 40’s and 50’s style tables and is much more spacious than the X and can serve groups as large as 105 people. (Great for motorcoach groups!) They also accept credit cards, which is a plus for me as I hardly ever have cash!

IMG_0509Now for the most important part… the food! Route 66 serves the same food as Triple XXX but also offers great salads, soups and beer and wine as well.  If you go you must try their root beer, it’s some of the best ever and it’s served in a frosty mug! Besides the root beer, they are known for a couple different things, first if you are hungry for breakfast food, try the Drew Brees First Choice with Chicken Fried Steak. It’s two eggs, cooked to order, choice of either chicken fried steak or 1/3 lb. of their signature 100% ground sirloin, choice of fried potatoes or hash browns with sausage gravy and two grilled buttermilk biscuits. You won’t leave hungry that’s for sure! If you are more in the mood for a sandwich, try the Duane Purvis All-American (it was featured on Diner’s Drive In’s and Dives on the Food Network when they visited Triple XXX). IMG_0508The Purvis is a ¼ lb. of 100%, ground sirloin with thick, creamy peanut butter served on a toasted sesame seed bun with melted American Cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickle and onion. If peanut butter isn’t your thing, try the Boilermaker Pete, a third pound 100% ground sirloin served on a toasted sesame bun with two slices of melted American cheese and grilled onions. More of a white meat person? Try the Leroy Loin (their breaded tenderloin) or the grilled tenderloin both are fantastic! Be sure to leave room for dessert too! Their pies are all fabulous and if they have the root beer cake it is a must try! All the sundaes and of course the root beer float is amazing too!

Love is in the Air at Home of Purdue

Bq4PncK9AvuzqH5xiqATpAL0vMpFc15Qff4RXQUOIqAWhat do you think of when you think of Valentine’s day? Roses, hearts, lace, wine, spending time and doing something special with the one you love? Do you still need to plan something special for that special someone? Well, I have a romantic date idea for you!

Start by getting flowers. Call your favorite local florist now. Don’t wait. This is one of the busiest times of the year for a florist. Don’t know where to go? Check out this list: http://www.homeofpurdue.com/meetings/pro_florists.html. Too late for a pre-made arrangement? Rubia Flower Market, Payless Grocery Stores, Target and Meijer all tend to have a good selection of pre-made bouquets to pick up the day of, you just may need to have your own vase to put them in if that’s the route you want to go. (Or just hand her the bouquet… I bet she has something that will work!)

Now, plan dinner. Some people book reservations for Valentine’s Day weeks and months in advance so your first option or two may be booked or you’ll have to wait a long time to get in if just walking in. I’m not a huge fan of crowds or waiting in line. I’d be just fine having my date make me dinner on Valentine’s Day. It’s actually, really sweet. I know my husband doesn’t cook a lot and if he put forth the effort to plan a special meal, I would love it! Just be sure you clean up the mess too! Pasta is always an easy go to in my book and is so

La Scala Lasagna

La Scala Lasagna

versatile.  If you need help looking for a recipe just check out Pinterest ,you’ll find thousands! Don’t forget the wine too! Wildcat Creek Winery has some great ones if you need help! If we go out, one of our favorite romantic restaurants is LaScala Italian Restaurant. You typically have a short walk to hold hands and cuddle up together to stay warm, it is February in Indiana after all! Once inside, the lighting is low and sets just the right mood. Of course, again most of the dishes are pasta. Always a plus in my book! How can you go wrong? My favorite is the Seafood Giorgio. The roasted red pepper cream sauce is amazing. Bring me anything with that on it and I’d be happy!

Now for an activity. Well, you are right downtown, why not take a little stroll? Walk over the pedestrian bridge and then maybe try out some ice skating at the Riverside Skating Center. If your date skates anything like me you’ll at least get to hold her a lot as I am on the ice more than I’m on my feet, but I still have fun!

IceSkating171231005795Need to warm up a bit after ice skating? Try one of the many coffee houses nearby. I’m not a coffee drinker but love a good cup of hot chocolate or hot tea. Try Java Roaster, Star City Coffee & Ale or Greyhouse Coffee (might want to drive to Greyhouse, especially if it’s cold, but it’s worth it!).

The rest of the night is up to you. Hopefully this gives you some ideas and helps put you in the Valentine’s Day mood.

Enjoy! Ashley, Director of Sales, shares this blog.

Dining Divas Explore Poke Hibachi

poke-hibachiInside4West Lafayette has joined the national trend in offering the wildly popular Hawaiian dish, Poke (pronounced POH-kay). Poke is from the Hawaiian word meaning to section or to slice or cut and is a raw fish salad served as an appetizer in Hawaiian cuisine, and sometimes as a main course.  Think of it as sushi deconstructed in a laid back Hawaiian way!

poke-hibachiwhatPokeisAt Poke Hibachi in West Lafayette, you can now get poke bowls as well as grilled meats and fish (the hibachi part).  The Dining Divas, accompanied by poke expert Julia Zuchov (Julia went to college in a town with multiple poke options and is thrilled that it’s finally come here), tried it out on a beautiful day.  The decor is clean, modern, and whimsical. While there is some seating and a large stand-up table, poke bowls are perfect take-out food, and that’s what we did with ours.

Bar of food choices

Bar of food choices

Poke is often customizable and the West Lafayette version is no different. It’s like building a burrito in many restaurants where you order cafeteria style. Go through the line and select a base, toppings, sauce, and garnishes. The base can be organic rice, brown rice, or mixed greens. The raw fish choices are fresh salmon, ahi tuna, white tuna, baby octopus, kani (a food product made from fish) salad, spicy salmon, shrimp, lobster salad, and spicy tuna. Tofu is also available. Toppings include edamame, cucumber, carrot, corn, celery, pickled cucumber, pickled jalapeños, lettuce, peanut, white radish, and pineapple. For 50 cents more you can add either avocado, masago (fish roe), asparagus, cherry tomato, mango, seaweed salad, tamago (Japanese omelet), sunflower salad, or dry banana. The delicious sauce options are: ginger, yami, sweet wasabi, eel, spicy mayo, ponzu (like a citrusy vinaigrette), sesame, or fruit. Finally, the garnishes: sesame seeds, scallion, seaweed, tempura crunch, or ginger. If this seems daunting, seeing the bins of super fresh toppings and sauces makes it easy to design your own unique poke bowl. Regular bowls are $8.99 and large bowls are $11.99. We all ordered regular size and felt we could have handled the large!

The hibachi menu is smaller. Each grilled platter includes mixed vegetables, brown rice, and teriyaki sauce. Grilled meats are chicken ($8.99), shrimp ($9.99), steak ($9.99), chicken & steak ($11.99), chicken & shrimp ($11.99), steak & shrimp ($12.99), salmon ($10.99), and eel ($10.99).

Tofu

Tofu meal

Margy went simple with brown rice, tofu, and ginger sauce. She was impressed with the generous portion of tofu, and said, “The ginger sauce is hard to beat—it has plenty of spicy flavor.”

Julia was bolder and ordered fresh salmon with jalapeños, seaweed salad, and spicy mayo on rice. “The flavors come from the surrounding ingredients and add to the fresh salmon taste,” she said. “I think it’s my new favorite! There’s nothing else like it in the area.”

Bev’s bowl was lobster salad on greens with spicy mayo and seaweed and declared it delicious. “The Dining Divas actually have some complicated dietary restrictions,” she said, “and just about anyone can eat here. It’s so customizable!”

Poke Hibachi Food

Kay, normally our only enthusiastic fish eater, was skeptical of a raw fish salad in Indiana, but she was pleasantly surprised by the fresh spicy salmon on greens with avocado, edamame, white radish, spicy mayo, and seaweed– a delicious combination.

Jo was our only hibachi eater. She enjoyed the spicy salmon with greens and mixed vegetables. “The cauliflower and broccoli are extremely fresh and crunchy and add a wonderful texture to the spicy grilled salmon,” she said. “And it was made to order which is awesome!”

Jo also added, and we all agree, “It made for a great lunch, which was so enjoyable to eat outside on a nice day in the Village.”

Raw Spicey Salmon

One recommendation is that if you are with a group and some are having poke and others hibachi, let those getting the grilled food go first. It takes a bit longer than the poke bowls since it is cooked to order.

It’s going to take many return trips in order to try all those delicious sauces. Find Poke Hibachi at 112  Andrew Place, tucked behind Mad Mushroom. See you there!
