We really dislike hot weather; but its one advantage is that it means East End is open.
Wednesdays mean a large deluxe pizza (no onions) and a large vanilla malt. Any day means an almond joy ice cream banana cup or some other temptation.
Sure,there's the Circus, Cole Porter etc.; but the tastiest Peru icon tempts one with generous treats at a reasonable price.

The Voodoo Public House is a surprising little gem in downtown Peru, Indiana. It feels like a typical Midwestern diner until you look at the menu and the specials. Yesterday's specials included Jackfruit Curry, Mac Tease, and Mango Vegetable soup. I tried all 3--the first two for lunch and the soup for the road trip after a 22 mile bike ride on the Nickel Plate Trail (another gem). All 3 dishes were tasty and very well-seasoned.
BTW, my carnivore husband liked the bison burger as well.

Decided to treat ourselves with a peppermint mocha and a couple turnovers. The Aroma Coffee Shop is still a good local option to satisfy the craving.
The mocha was tasty (strong on the peppermint), and the turnovers (raspberry cream & almond paste) were both a delightful indulgence.
The facility has a comfortable, hometown feel; and our server was friendly and attentive.
A nice little retreat, especially during the cold days.

You can get a meal or an ice cream or both. It's DQ, nothing more or less than that. Easy in and out location and clean.

During a recent family reunion many of us ate two different group breakfasts at Gabriels on Sat and Sun. Nothing but good things to say about it. A variety of seating arrangements for all size groups in a pleasant setting. The restaurant is right on Broadway (old US 31) in Peru, just north of main. Lots of easy parking.
There is just about every possible breakfast offering on the menu. I can't imagine anything (reasonably) that anyone could want that they didn't have on it. Between the eight of us (over two days) we had skillet dishes, plain ol' eggs and bacon, omelets, and pancakes. Good coffee, too. And the food came amazingly quickly.
We saw the really extensive Sunday brunch buffet and it looked great, although we all enjoyed ordering off the menu the previous morning so we stuck to that.
Two last things worth mentioning: we were blessed to have the same young woman serving us both days and she could not have been more helpful and attentive. A great server. Finally, if you like hot sauce, they make their own really great habanero sauce which two of my brothers poured over everything (and asked for more). Not for the faint of palette.

We were passing thru on US 31 and decided to go into Peru and see what we could find. We found Harvey's. And so glad we did. The service was prompt and courteous, the food arrived in good time, and it was good. I had a Reuben and it was probably one of the best I've ever had. The rye bread was really very good! Hubby enjoyed the salad bar and he had a brat which he said was really good. Wish we had saved room for dessert but we were very full. Only drawback I could see was that their menu was too big. They need to stick to their specialties and cut out the fluff that probably never gets ordered. All in all, a great dining experience.

This is not "upscale dining", but it is an excellent choice for value, quality of food and service.
The soft chewy pizza crust is a wonderful base for many tasty toppings (my wife especially liked the barbecue chicken ranch). The subs and calzones were also outstanding.
The salad ingredients were fresh and varied. All of which made for a highly satisfying buffet experience.
We really appreciated the attentiveness of the staff. We were asked several times if we needed anything made special, not what one usually experiences at a buffet.
The only minor disappointment was that there was no soup left by 6:30 pm.
All and all though, we highly recommend this option.

We wanted to try this place because the menu looked great and drove 15 mines to do....but on this Tuesday night there was a live band in the small interior, and reservations were needed.
Too bad.....some Cajun food, fried chicken, specialty burgers.....wish we could have tried it.
