Family restaurant that serves great breakfast anytime!

If you are looking for a restaurant with that "down home" atmosphere, be sure to check out Patches. Wide selection of breakfast items at a very fair price. Also have daily specials. If you'd prefer, lunch is also available. Wait staff aim to please. You can tell this is a very good restaurant... read more

Breakfast was very good. Reasonable prices, plenty of food and coffee and pleasant servers. It is a hometown kind of restaurant. We prefer local to chains and are very happy to have found this one.

If you would like to place a to go order, they aren't too acceptable to this accommodation as it always seems to be a bother.

I when ordered a BLT it came out with burnt toast and one little slice of tomato not even ripe. They were not even busy had to wait to order about 15 minutes. Waitress came by I... More

heOne look at the outside and you wonder if you should go in; once you enter you know you are in the right place...everything looked clean and in it's place. This was a late lunch time and only a few people were left from lunch. We we welcomed by just about all the workers. The menu is varied with sandwiches... More

We have been coming to Venice over 8 years on vacation. We go to Patches every time. We were disappointed in the service this time. It seemed that it was a chore for the server to wait on us. The food was fine, but a little disappointed in the Western Omelet This time there was a lot to be desired.... More

I'm always thrilled when a friend invites me to a lunch or dinner at a new place, at least for me, since I had not been here in about 15 years and it had changed owners since. Even though we met for lunch, we were both in the mood for a nice omelet. Our waitress, Rusty proudly proclaimed that they... More

I'm not a big breakfast fan, but if you're looking for a place with good food, clean atmosphere, and friendly service, this just may be the one you're looking for.

Good for breakfast. Been here several times. Have not been here for lunch. Service we had today was very good. .Unfortunately we had to wait a bit for food to some but at least it was hot when we got it.

Stopped here by mistake, while looking for another place with a similar name (Peach's) and did not realize I was in the wrong place until I looked more closely at the sign and clown decor. However, it was busy with a mix of locals and snowbird winter residents, so I stayed. Glad I did because the service was very good... More
