Cafe at the Prop Business Growing

Chef Suzanne Rockwell of Chef Suzanne Catering took over the Café at the Prop in August 2019. The Café had been closed for six months. Rockwell knew there would be a period of slow growth as the Café was introduced to members and guests of the

Propylaeum. With a menu of fresh salads and sandwiches, entrée specials including lasagna and chicken and noodles, as well as Café staples like chicken velvet soup, Rockwell found her stride at Café at the Prop.

“December was an incredible month” said Rockwell, “we hosted 21 groups of women in the first three weeks—and that doesn’t include our regular groups like the Indianapolis Council of Women and the Indianapolis Woman’s Club.”

Café at the Prop is a great place for women’s groups to meet for lunch. Groups of 12-15 can be accommodated in the front parlor, while larger groups can meet in the Clubroom. All guests have the opportunity to tour the building and can use the Walking Tour Brochure for self-guided tour, or make arrangements ahead of time to have

Propylaeum staff provide a guided tour at no charge. Guests are always welcome to stop by the Prop offices to ask questions about the building or the Propylaeum


Café at the Prop is open weekdays from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. If you would like to make a reservation for a group to meet please call 317-638-7881 x2 or email
