Great Local Diner

Small-town diner atmosphere when you walk in. We ate with another couple on a Sunday morning around 9:00am and beat the post church crowd. I had the Eggs, bacon, corned beef hash, wheat toast and coffee. Everything was delicious and in generous portions. I had to explain to our waitress while... read more

Great breakfast food, cheap prices. It reminds us of our breakfast place in MO we would always go to. People are friendly and we always take everyone who comes to visit there for breakfast. Especially if they don't like clowns because the place is full of them.

Patches is a nice small and crowded diner with clowns hanging from the ceiling. We had breakfast at Patches which was good and reasonably priced. We had the usual eggs, bacon, toast and coffee all good. It is conveniently located at 501 Venice Ave. E. . No need to call for reservations. Patches, like most diners has fast service with... More

This unpretentious diner is a good bet for breakfast IF you can get in! It is very noisy when crowded and you sit inches from the other diners. I don't know how the wait staff gets the food between the tables but I'm glad that they do! Their entrees are tasty and plentiful. My husband loves the kielbasa omelet while... More

Stopped in after my latest colonoscopy. I was starving! Big surprise! It was almost 10 a.m. and the place was busy. We were seated immediately. I ordered the sausage biscuits and gravy, plus a buttermilk pancake. The two large biscuits were split and covered with thick, sausage filled gravy. The pancake was light and huge; filling the plate. I ate... More

Good food for the bikers on the trail. The Greece meals are just fantastic. Everyone in this place is just friendly. Sometimes it is like being at home. When you are on the bike trail at the train station in Venice ride away from the water. It is about two blocks on the left.

This is a neighborhood place that has great pancakes and even better prices. The pancakes are the size of a dinner plate!

First off the restaurant had a funny smell, like a combination of cigarettes and mildew. We got pancakes and French Toast. Pancakes were ok and French Toast were just sad. Would not go back.
