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

Much better for breakfast than Shulas at our hotel. I would eat here every morning if I were in town for a convention. Two of us had egg sandwiches, other had omelet, another had pancakes. Bread on sandwich was delicious but thick and more calories than I needed so I took off one slice and ate with a knife and... More

Everything I've ever had at Patachou has been exceptional: the Belgian waffles, the eggs Benedict, the chicken salad, and especially their signature soup -- tomato artichoke!

The food here is some of the best in Indianapolis. The only negatives is the locations are small, so it gets crowded very quickly during peak hours and that it is not he cheapest restaurant. I highly recommend their made to order omelettes & he French toast.

Stopped in for breakfast/ lunch at the downtown branch of this restaurant, having been told I have to have the cinnamon toast as it is "life changing" (not life changing in my opinion, but still lovely). Had a California dreamer omelette (white cheddar, avocado and jalepeno) which was very good, with the yummy cinnamon toast, a lemon tart (very good)... More
