Very loud - music, kitchen noises, etc. only four tables filled but can't carry on a conversation. Not used to getting my own coffee- everyone up and down and running into each other. Prefer no flavors but that's not an option

We're sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your experience at Cafe Patachou! We will be installing a sound boards to absorb sound from the kitchen and patrons. And we do offer coffee that is not flavored! So we hope you might give us another chance sometime soon. More

I love the food at Cafe Patachou and also loved the location on 126th street. The new location on Main Street is too loud and not a neighborhood restaurant. We won't be returning to this location.

Visited the new location at 5790 E Main Street, Carmel, on opening day. Nice crowd, new building is much larger, more outdoor space, always friendly & outgoing service. The noise level with the music was a bit loud - nothing inside to soften it. Everyone here is super friendly & the crowds kept coming. My concern for summer or as... More

This place was top notch! As you walk in, the cage sets the vibe as a student union for adults- such a clever and creative idea. I chose to eat breakfast and ordered the cuban breakfast and grabbed a self-serve coffee (three amazing flavors to choose from). The jalapeno pesto made my dish superb. Everyday there is a different omelet... More

Stopped in for breakfast. Liked the fact there was a grab a cup of coffee and seat yourself. Waitress promptly followed up with offerings and as a snob, I ordered pouched eggs, crisp bacon with dry sourdough toast. All made to perfection.

This was our first visit to the Cafe Patachou in Carmel's Clay Terrace. The menu is the same as the other locations and the restaurant is most inviting. This location, like its' siblings in Broad Ripple and 49th an Penn, offers both outdoor and indoor dining--though the outdoor tables aren't adjacent to a city street. Otherwise the overall experience was... More

Called a carryout order in for the Cafe Patachou chicken salad with chocolate muffins. Order was picked up & brought home. Opened to find that neither had the muffin we ordered. I understand they are popular & probably go quickly but it would have been helpful for the person taking the order to have told us right then that none... More

We went there on Labor Day and made reservations - it's a must. Food and service were really good at an affordable price. Music was a bit loud but all in all a great experience. We really had a good time and were very satisfied

We waited. Forever. So it's got to be good, right? Shame on us for coming to brunch on Labor Day. I know we were a group of 10, but our 15-20 minute wait was an hour. The staff was very nice and apologetic, but people were lingering. I get it. But if people were lingering, then at least the kitchen... More
