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.

My husband and I come to Patches at least once a month and have always received good breakfasts. Their huge pancakes are amazing --- you won't find any better. Place can get very crowded and restaurant can get a bit frenzied, but the morning good is always hot and good.

My mom has been going here for more than 20 years. The staff all know her, and treat her well when she visits, and by extension they treat me well. The breakfast is excellent. Eggs, bacon, toast, grits, sausage gravy, pancakes - all delicious. My friend had the sweet potato pancakes, which were out of this world.

We really should have left Patches within minutes of entering. The waitress was making coughing and sneezing noises which she sort of apologized for by saying that it was an allergy. That may be so but it was inexcusable for her to sneeze into her hand more than once. GROSS! As for the food, we both had a Western omelette.... More

My husband's grandparents are regulars at Patches and it's always a treat when we go with them during our visits. The food is delicious, the service is fast and friendly, and the customers all seem to know each other. I highly recommend dining here!

The last time I was there the food was horrible, the cook had a dangling cigarette in his mouth and the smell from the nearby sewer treatment plant was all too much. I won't be back-ever.

Don't expect 5* service, because you don't deserve it at Patches. If you want real food, served up big and strong, the way Mom used to make it, then go to Patches. The same servers have been there for 75 years, and nothing has changed. Which is good. Total locals spot, with ambience from the 60s that they better NEVER... More
