Went there for lunch, everything my party ordered was good. I was especially impressed with their gluten free options and liked being asked if it was an allergy. The vegetarians with us loved their veggie sandwiches minus the tofu. Overall everyone left satisfied.

Patachou Café is directly south of the State House and is located on the inside corner of the Simon Building so it is conveniently located. The food is very fresh and upscale there is a Hipster (if I can use that term) feel to the place. The inside has ceilings that are about 20' and it is all open. You... More

Cafe Patachou is my favorite spot for a breakfast meeting or brunch with my family. The original on Illinois St. is tops; Keystone Ave. location is good too. Pancakes, broken yolk sandwich, cinnamon toast, Cuban black bean breakfast w/ salsa verde...my mouth is watering.

Hands down best breakfast downtown! The omlets are delicious. I'm a hippie with the benz kinda girl. Fresh ingredients. Staff is modern and if it's a busy morning, don't expect a lot of conversation. They may even seem stand offish but on slower days they are happy to chill and talk.

Got to love the self service coffee bar. Weekends plan to spend some time waiting for a table but good things are always worth waiting for

My family eats at Patachou on a regular basis, it's always perfectly cooked, delicious, and served in a timely manner. Family friendly but still fresh and innovative!

25-30 minute wait at 10am on Saturday is not normally something I'm expecting, but it told me the food would be worth it. And it was. Best cinnamon toast I've ever had. Salmon on toast with egg and a side of argula was *plenty* filling and my husband's omelet of the day was the best thing we ate. Roasted chicken,... More
