Zionsville and Carmel diners will soon have a new option for breakfast and brunch fare.
Le Peep Restaurants of Indiana recently announced it will open a location in late summer at Weston Pointe Retail Center at 4400 Weston Pointe Dr., which is near the Zionsville/Carmel border.
Le Peep restaurants are known for traditional American breakfast and brunch cuisine, such as omelets and French toast, although lunch fare, such as sandwiches and salads, also are available.
According to Kristen Merritt, director of marketing for Le Peep Restaurants of Indiana, the new location will offer some new menu options as well as alcoholic beverages and a new brand of coffee.
“Diners can look forward to a full-service, sit-down experience (with outside dining),” she said. “Each of our locations will feature new menu items (including vegetarian and gluten-free) as well as the addition of beer, wine and champagne. We are also excited to add Lavazza coffee to our menu.”
Merritt anticipates the new restaurant will become part of the morning routine for many area residents.
“Our new Zionsville location will provide a much-needed early morning option for business commuters heading downtown (to grab) perhaps a quick bite or breakfast meeting,” she said.
The new Le Peep restaurant will be locally owned and will operate under the supervision of Frank Skaggs, vice president of operations for Le Peep Restaurants of Indiana. It will have the same operating hours as other Indiana Le Peep locations: 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
