After searching and walking the downtown area for a good breakfast spot, we asked a concierge and he suggested Patachou. We almost missed this wonderful dining experience. From the omelet selections, the cinnamon toast, the waffles, everything was delicious. Our server was very helpful in...More

This is the original Patachou location and it has great light with big windows from two sides. The Omelettes are large and packed with lots of great ingredients. The 10 Grain Porridge was also very filling, but as fruit lovers, we were glad we had...More

Busy, and somewhat noisy, but that is just because it is an incredibly popular spot for brunch or lunch. The food was delicious, the menu extensive, and the service was excellent. Prices, although not cheap, were definitely competitive.

Food was good, very busy lunch time crowd. Service a bit slow but very pleasant. Warning: Chopped Cobb salad with chicken - less that a tablespoon of chicken on the salad! They do feature many vegan options, maybe they are discouraging eating bird?
