From 1905 to 1990, the L.S. Ayres Tea Room was the place to go for lunch. A favorite among women and businessmen, the tea room was an icon of Indianapolis. It closed its doors in 1990 but was recreated inside the Indiana State Museum because of its rich history to the city. Inside, the tea room looks just as it originally did and some of the old menu favorites also made the transition. The most popular menu items - the Velvet Chicken Soup and the Clown Sundae dessert for kids. At Christmas, the tearoom is decorated beautifully for the holidays. It is also very popular around Mother's Day.
