Hearthstone Coffee House & Pub just opened up here in Fishers, Indiana. The idea is simple… coffee, beer, food, and supporting the local community. This place has a solid foundation, and money isn’t their incentive. I have heard the general manager say, “We aren’t in this to make money.” Of course making money would be nice… but they have bigger goals here. To prove that, they are donating 10 cents from every drink to charity. That adds up fast, so drink up! I just find it so unique that a place would open, and start off by donating so much to charity. I will soon be sitting down with the general manager, and we will discuss more about that when the time is right.
The general manager is Devin Rose. I first met Devin a few weeks ago (we actually talked on the phone first) and will be writing a series of blogs about the place. I will be talking about the food, the drinks, and more. First off, I wanted to talk about the menu. As I said, in future blogs I will look at their impressive beer list, their wine list, coffee drinks, and more. I am impressed with this place after having only been here a few times. I told Devin that Hearthstone would soon become my new hangout… and I am already scheduling meetings there!
Not sure the hours here… it’s not on the menu. But they do offer a pretty good breakfast menu. I guess it makes sense that a place offering your morning cup of coffee would offer a decent selection in the morning.

The lunch menu is pretty impressive. Nothing on the menu is over $7 and most come with a side of kettle chips and a pickle spear. The Pick 2 reminds me of Panera Bread… but cheaper! Moving on to the dinner menu… They don’t have a dinner menu here at Hearthstone Coffee House & Pub, but they do offer some filling appetizers. I have tried a few of them and this place just opened! Let’s take a closer look at their list of appetizers.
Cellerman’s Plate – $12.99 / Half Order $7.99
Toscana Salami, Prosciutto, Aged Irish Cheddar, Marinated Olives, Bourbon Beer Cheese, Tart Apples, Garlic Sourdough, and Flatbread Crackers.

The Cellerman’s Plate rocks. It reminds me of a dish I have had at Bella Vita once. The only thing that would make this dish better is a side of asparagus. Nothing beats wrapping fresh prosciutto around a stick of asparagus. The bourbon beer cheese is pretty good too. Oh, and the “fluff” fruit dip rocks! The apps will be a nice touch when they have tastings… like wine and martini tastings. They will be doing those every month.
You can’t have a coffee shop and not have a list of desserts to choose from. Starbucks has cake pops… but Hearthstone has brownies, cakes, and cookies. Let’s take a closer look at their dessert menu.

Cookies (Provided by Flying Cupcake) – $2.49 / Half $1.49

Last week, I had the chance to try a few of these desserts. First up was the coffee cake. It was a little dry, but that’s what makes coffee cake so good. It really does taste better with a cup of coffee. The crust is my favorite part. I also tried one of the cupcakes and the tiramisu. I must say, it was the weirdest looking tiramisu I have ever seen… but it was incredible. It was cold, which I usually don’t care for. But the way this one was presented made all the difference. Any one of these would go good with the South American. Imagine this… coffee, chocolate, and Patron XO. Oh man… it’s amazing! It’s the best coffee drink I have ever had. Not sure of the calorie count, but it’s incredible.
If you are hungry, and looking for a new place to hang out on Indy’s north side, stop by Hearthstone Coffee & Pub. They have an impressive beer list, some incredible coffee flavors, and a nice atmosphere. I have a feeling I will be spending a ton of time here.
