Excellent fresh food

We stopped here for brunch/lunch and shared the stuffed french toast and the chicken sandwich. The food was fresh and tasted very good. The service was friendly and very helpful. On a Saturday afternoon around lunch we only had to wait <30min - not bad at all.

First visit. Food was good and fresh. They were very busy which is a good sign. Atmosphere was a bit loud and plain. Coffee is self serve so lots of up and down. Staff was friendly. We will come back but to often.

The TA reviews of Patachou are right on! We had breakfast here after a Monday night show at the Murat. The eggs were fresh and the choices were unique and delicious. The waitress was helpful and friendly. We looked at the lunch menu and the choices were likewise inviting.

Went here for the first time on local's recommendation, and was just charmed. Fresh jams and jellies, plus generous portion sizes. My group tried salads, soups, sandwiches, and special drinks. So glad to have this great place in downtown Indy for future visits--please come build down in Texas! Customer mix was just that--suits, jeans, and in-between.

What a great breakfast! My wife had the waffle with bacon and fruit and I had the broken yolk sandwich on sourdough. Both fabulous. The sourdough bread was the best I have ever tasted. Big lines on weekend so we went on a Monday with no wait but after eating here I can confirm the wait is worth it. Bill... More

The line was out the door on a cold and rainy day. That was the first clue but then I blew it when , after ordering, I followed the waiter to the register where he was posting our orders- I changed my selection. He was mad and ignored us from that moment on. So while the first waiter was a... More

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.
