Wonderful gluten free breakfast!

This is a popular cafe with lots of egg dishes including their popular broken yolk sandwiches available on gluten free bread. They also have gluten free waffles. Pretty, sunny cafe. Usually have a wait but it's worth it. Friendly staff.

Fresh, whole food from local farms! Friendly, helpful staff! Bright, welcoming space! Flowers on the table! JOY! Truly nourishing, delicious foods that look so pretty on the plate are a true pleasure when traveling. The extensive lunch and breakfast menus offered plenty of options for all kinds of eaters -- gluten free, vegan, and old fashioned Grandmas' favorites. The tomato... More

The menu had many unique takes on different breakfast dishes. If you are hoping to find some "traditional" menu selections this place is not for you. I order one of the egg sandwiches. The bread used was very fresh, but the rest did not seem like anything special. Seemed a bit over priced for breakfast or brunch.

This is the 3rd time I've been here. I have family that lives here and this place is a must go EVERY TIME! The wait staff were friendly. I had the Cuban Breakfast. They made that eggs just like I wanted, not runny. The ingredients don't overpower each other and the Cilantro sauce that goes over it, pulls it all... More

My favorite place to eat breakfast! The broken yolk sandwiches are great , cinnamon toast with your omelette is delish. Fresh ground coffee of the day is great too! Love their egg salad or chicken salad sandwich for lunch. Always fresh ingredients

There are several Patachou locations in the Greater Indy area. All of them serve interesting and tasty breakfast and lunch items. Try the breakfast sandwiches. Good coffee too. Great places to meet and talk, but the cafes are not large, so they can be crowded at busy times. Probably easier to get a table on a weekday morning, but worth... More

I've been going here for years and to all of their spin off restaurants. Healthy and unhealthy options, super fresh and just generally delicious. Sometimes the service can be hit or miss but that's just because they are always so darn busy. Personally if you enjoy omelette's or open faced egg sandwiches this is the place for you. Tomato artichoke... More

Hands-down, this is the best breakfast spot in the Indianapolis area. Cafe Patachou uses fresh ingredients and the food is consistently delicious. My favorite thing on the menu are the omelets. They're served with a cup of fresh fruit and two slices of toast. Their cinnamon toast is amazing! If you're worried about sugar overload, they'll gladly split your order... More
