Patrick's taking over the coffee shop/restaurant inside this Bachmans was brilliant. My mom and I had an early lunch at Patrick's today - such a delight. We shared a spinach quiche, which was very tasty and nice and warm - split on two plates with a side salad on each (very kind!). We also had 3 of their bite size... More

Patrick’s Bakery & Café is a find! It had been more than a decade since I’d stopped at the Bachman’s on Lyndale (which has since expanded). And lo and behold, inside we discovered this delightful little French pastry & espresso shop that also serves lunch! It has menu offerings similar to (sadly-no-longer-in-business) Pardon My French, or Patisserie 46. Espresso here... More

We were staying in Bloomington for a short overnight and wanted a breakfast that wasn't the usual chain restaurant. Found this on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. We had eggs Benedict, an omelet, and the French toast. All were delicious! Don't forget to try the light and tasty chocolate croissant! Can't wait to go back and try their... More

This little place is beautiful. Don't let the strip Mall location fool you--it's a French bakery atmosphere. Chocolate croissants are amazing-- light and tasty with great chocolate inside--just the perfect amount of sweet. Coffee may be the best I have ever had. Will definitely be coming back.

Nice place for lunch. Very nice setting in Bachman's garden center -- lots of lovely flowers around. It's self-service. Food is good -- not special. Good baked goods.

Patrick's Burger is amazing! As is anything on the menu. We go here for every birthday, lunch meetings, and pastries. It's a wonderful place.

We stopped by to have a sweet treat while we were visiting the Cities. We tried the Napoleon, cheesecake, and Creme Brulee. They melted in your mouth. We will definitely be back.

I had passed Patrick's for years not knowing exactly what it was. Then a friend informed me that they serve French inspired food out of that strip mall location. I had the mussels which were excellent. Anybody looking a good fine dining option by Southdale should check out Patrick's.

We frequent this spot when we stay at the Westin Edina near the Galleria. The baked goods are fresh and tasty. The breakfasts are authentic Parisian with better than Parisian service. If in this area, don't do a chain restaurant and you will love the food.

We've been here a few times for coffee & a sweet but wanted a light cheap lunch. We both had tasty hot meat sandwiches on high quality bread. Apple tart with solid pudding like topping still warm and just right sweetness. We'd go for lunch again since wife really likes this large Bachmans .
