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?

Decent breakfast food. Nothing out of this world. The best part is the coffee and the quick service. Our food arrived quickly and our waitress was very kind.

Local here, have been eating at Patachou for about 5 years with my Celiac wife. You can't go wrong, tons of options for her and she has never once been sick. Servers are all trained in food allergies, just let them know ahead of time....More

What a pleasure to revisit this neighborhood gem after a twenty year absence! Same superb service (thank you Ryan!) more menu choices (loved the omelette of the day plus deliciously sinful cinnamon sourdough toast AND kneecap sized drop biscuit) and serve yourself coffee bar.

The tuna they use is very tasty, but it's a $10.75 sandwich. It comes with a very small portion of greens that is fine. Was there during lunch and it's noisy to have any type of conversation. I would imagine that anywhere during prime time.
