“Unexpected Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Lived in Fishers for 7 years and recently visited for the first time when our regular breakfast spot was packed. Excellent Omelette's and salads. Service is also excellent.

“Breakfast on Saturday morning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

It is always a pleasure to stop by for breakfast and enjoy the great food and service. I especially like the omelettes and sausage gravy

“My kind of restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We had a Cracker Barrel right in front of our hotel but I'll take a local business over a chain anytime. A 4 minute ride took us to one of my favorite types of restaurant; a locally owned breakfast place.

I am very happy with my choice. We found this place at the end of a small strip and on a Sunday morning, the parking lot was nearly full; good sign. There was a small crowd waiting, I made my way to the hostess to sign in and she reported a 15 minute wait. I liked the look of the place, the contented looks of the customers and the very upbeat manner of the hostess, so I agreed.

We waited on bench seats and we could see some of the dining room and watched the hostess aggressively patrolling the room for for opening tables. We were seated in less than 10 minutes.

We both had very fine breakfasts. I couldn't finish my 2(?) egg western omelet, real home fries with onions and a side of the tasty garlic sausage they offer, but I sure tried. My wife finished off her 2 over easy eggs, bacon and what they call cornbread casserole, and English muffin as her choice of toast. The server left her a pot of coffee, which she said was very good, after the 2nd refill.

Excellent

If this were not 150 miles away, I definitely would be a regular. I'd like to try their lunch.

“Great Breakfast Spot (Locally Owned/Operated)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

The Roost is a great casual diner that offers many things but is primarily known for its breakfast. The food is very good and very consistent. They offer all traditional breakfast type meals but they also carry a few non-traditional omelets and quiches. It is very crowded on the weekends but the wait times move quick. Definitely worth checking out!

Service:
Quick, no frills, straight forward diner style servers. Servers are typically young and casually dressed - but they are polite and eager to please.

Value:
Pricing is on par with most breakfast diners. Generous portions and endless coffee.

Atmosphere:
Casual atmosphere with many tables and booths. Dining room is a little cramped and a few tables might have you sitting very close to other patrons making it hard for private conversation.

“Breakfast is Top Notch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

We found this sort of small, plain restaurant after reading recommendations here on Tripadvisor, as we were looking for a good place to have breakfast...WOW...what a great find! We had to wait about 10 minutes, but it was well worth it. Coffee took a few extra minutes to get, as our waiter was waiting for a fresh pot to brew - I'll take that kind of service any day of the week. We had a FAB western omelette with cornbread-stuffing-ish side, which was excellent, and a Daybreak special with scrambled eggs, bacon, and pancakes. The food was served very quickly and smokin' hot, just the way we like it. Excellent find if you are in the Indy area!
