This is a family friendly, nice little restaurant on the corner with outdoor seating. Food is very good and fresh. The cinnamon toast is tasty, the "can't resist it" omelet was excellent, fruit was fresh, hot chocolate was amazing, and my husband enjoyed the coffee. I am very particular about my breakfast and this was a fabulous little spot to... More

Came here for breakfast. Like the place, cozy and good selection of sandwich & omelette. Their hot chocolate is yummy! Tried the chili soup & tomato artichoke - love both! Should try this place when visiting Indianapolis

This is truly one of the most unique places I have ever been it. The food is absolutely delicious and everything they serve is of the highest quality. The fruit is ripe, the water is pure and the portions are very large! This restaurant offers an amazing value for the price and there is enough variety on the menu to... More

I ordered the Cubano breakfast (white rice, black beans, fried egg, cheese, avocado), and a croissant. Very nicely prepared, Cubano needed a little salt, but this is a personal preference. The croissant was delicious, very fluffy and fresh. Atmosphere was phenomenal. Waiting time for a table might be long, but it is definitely worth it.

There are lots of reviews here for Cafe Patachou and many of them appear to be of the DOWNTOWN location (Patachou at the Park), not this one, which is in the historic (residential) Meridian-Kessler neighborhood. I've been to the downtown location twice and was underwhelmed but I've never had a bad experience at THIS one, which I've been to a... More

Excellent food, service, and atmosphere. The neighborhood surrounding this restaurant gives it a nice urban/suburban blended feel. It is very clean and well decorated with the French café style. The menu combines some French classics with some other unique combinations to create an eclectic mix that makes this a spot to both try new things and enjoy classics done well.

Cafe Patachou is ideal to go out with young children who are at their best in the morning. The breakfast menu with emphasis on crepes is well prepared and the specials omelette was light and rich in healthy choices. Good coffees and very good service rounds out the experience.

During a conference in Indianapolis, one group I belong had its business meeting over an 8-10 am breakfast at Cafe Patachou, and after reading glowing reviews on TripAdvisor, I was looking forward to this breakfast. The restaurant had arranged for our group to meet in a separated area so we could have reports and discussions as needed, and we were... More
