The food was surprisingly good. The salad bar was fresh. The entire staff seemed to be pleased that we were there.
Save room for dessert.

I have been going to Patticakes for years at Haile Plantation. Without a doubt the best Cafe Latte I have ever had. Forget about Starbucks weak expensive warm milk. No comparison the full body espresso is a double shot of goodness. The artistic touch of steamed milk is a sight to behold that the baristas create with care. Sarah and the other employees are always very pleasant. The bakery goods are very tasty, from cupcakes, quiche and bagels you can't go wrong. Great atmosphere to take in at Haile Plantation just outside of Gainesville the Haile Plantation Village which is a great place to walk around and enjoy the wonderful shops. Another location near the U of F Campus across from Bo Diddley square. Stop by and taste what I am talking about this place blows Starbucks away!!!! Be patient it can be very busy and for good reason, they are the best and very popular. Everything bagel with cream cheese and a Latte is the best deal around!!! Forget about any bad review about their coffee, the reviewer does not know what they are talking about and must have a hidden agenda :) This place ROCKS!!!!!

We had finished having a late lunch/early dinner which was a bit on the lighter side at a restaurant in Haile and we decided to splurge on some ice cream for dessert. We had the dog with us so we sat at the table outside and I went in to choose the ice cream, with an idea to get something that the dog could enjoy too (so in other words, had to stay away from the chocolate stuff).

I ordered two scoops to go--a scoop of pralines and cream and a scoop of raspberry white chocolate swirl. The ice cream was very good--the raspberry in particular was extremely tasty. Next time we'll have to try a cupcake.

I had the regular coffee - the espresso drinks might be better. But stay away from the regular brew - it's weak and not tasty. Service was friendly, ambiance is very nice - quiet, pretty outdoor seating. BTW, it doesn't open until 8:00.

This is a great coffee/bakery. The cupcakes are the best in town, and their lattes are fantastic! My very favorite is the snickerdoodle latte. This is an excellent spot for relaxing, studying, talking, all the above! Two giant thumbs up!
