This one, I have to give mixed reviews. I ate there multiple times in the time that I lived in Ignacio. Locals love it, and that may be because it's so hard for a restaurant to survive in Ignacio that they are very grateful that anyone made it and stayed. The food is mediocre at best, with the exception of their homemade pies, which are spectacular. Go for pie and coffee and throw out the coffee!
It needs a thorough cleaning, some updating and remodeling, and above all, it needs someone who can cook, use spices, and produce quality dishes with some flavor.
Service varies widely and wildly with the number of people there, the number of staff available, and the mood they happen to be in on that particular day.
Still, Ignacio is a sorry place to try to find a restaurant of any kind, and the Patio serves the community with at least something to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Not altogether bad - go for pie!
