I travel through the Venice area often and invariably at some point in my trip I end up eating breakfast here, A good place for breakfast where many of the patrons are "locals"

I only ate a basic breakfast there once, and it was not anything special. Very reasonable prices. The clown motif is certainly different.

Patches won't win for decor or design but it more than makes up for it with its healthy breakfasts and staff who aim to please.

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 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, as this is where the locals eat!
