Topping the list is Sherwood Cafe Family Restaurant. Located at 5645 N. Post Road, the traditional American and breakfast and brunch spot is the highest-rated inexpensive breakfast and brunch restaurant in Indianapolis, boasting 4.5 stars out of 52 reviews on Yelp.

Yelper Sarah L., who reviewed Sherwood Cafe Family Restaurant on July 31, shared, "The coffee is delicious, and the food is amazing! Try the Mexican omelet. A large group got the fried chicken, and I was jealous for not getting it as well."

2. 3 Days In Paris

Next is downtown's 3 Days in Paris, situated at 222 E. Market St. With 4.5 stars out of 337 reviews on Yelp, the creperie and breakfast and brunch spot, serving coffee and tea and more, has proven to be a local favorite for those looking for a low-priced option. 

We turned there for an overview of 3 Days in Paris. It's named for the number of days founder Colleen spent learning to make crepes in Paris, according to the history section of the business's Yelp profile. Soon after, she began selling her own crepes at school fund raisers and the winter farmers market. 

The street-style creperie "specializes in hand-prepared sweet and savory crepes and pour over coffee," it notes on Yelp in the section highlighting specialties. 

3. Breakfast 96 & Tacos

Keystone at the Crossing's Breakfast 96 & Tacos, located at 4825 E. 96th St., Suite 1500, is another top choice, with Yelpers giving the inexpensive breakfast and brunch spot, which offers sandwiches and tacos, 4.5 stars out of 44 reviews.

Yelper Emma J., who reviewed Breakfast 96 & Tacos on April 7, wrote, "I ordered a chicken dish with rice and beans. When I saw the food come out, I was a little skeptical, and then I tried it. It was tasty! I judge Mexican restaurants by their rice and beans, and this spot passed with flying colors!"

4. Just Judy's

Just Judy's, a steakhouse and breakfast and brunch spot in Allisonville, is another much-loved, affordable go-to, with 4.5 stars out of 182 Yelp reviews. Head over to 5018 E. 62nd St. to see for yourself. 

The site can tell you a thing or two more about Just Judy's, which has been in business for 23 years. 

Yelper LaShelle S., who reviewed Just Judy's on Feb. 29, noted, "I've only been here a few times, but the one thing I love so far is the small peanut butter pancakes. They are so simple but so good! A must try for peanut butter lovers. I almost forgot about the super large egg croissant sandwich. The croissant is good—fresh and buttery."
