If you like to people watch, Patys is a good spot. Inside is just as good as outside. The service is good and the food is good (though a bit over priced). You can depend on a decent meal with goodly portions, no matter what time of day it is.

Something for everybody,including some gluten-free options. Large portions of delicious comfort food. Free parking in the back (limited).Breakfast (most of them)served anytime. Friendly & helpful staff. Booths make it fun.

This place packs them in for lunch during the week and you may have to wait to be seated and it's the same for breakfast on weekends. The place is that popular.

January was still a bit chilly so we waited to be seated inside, but that gives you time to watch a nice staff working well together. Eggs and homemade hash for some while i had a great bowl of oatmeal. My son (who is local) says this is a busy place so figure on a long wait on week-ends, but... More

The food was great, friendly service, good quiet area. We had breakfast and the food arrived quickly and tasted great. Good fresh orange juice. Refills in the coffee.
