Stopped in for breakfast. Liked the fact there was a grab a cup of coffee and seat yourself. Waitress promptly followed up with offerings and as a snob, I ordered pouched eggs, crisp bacon with dry sourdough toast. All made to perfection.

This was our first visit to the Cafe Patachou in Carmel's Clay Terrace. The menu is the same as the other locations and the restaurant is most inviting. This location, like its' siblings in Broad Ripple and 49th an Penn, offers both outdoor and indoor dining--though the outdoor tables aren't adjacent to a city street. Otherwise the overall experience was... More

Called a carryout order in for the Cafe Patachou chicken salad with chocolate muffins. Order was picked up & brought home. Opened to find that neither had the muffin we ordered. I understand they are popular & probably go quickly but it would have been helpful for the person taking the order to have told us right then that none... More

We went there on Labor Day and made reservations - it's a must. Food and service were really good at an affordable price. Music was a bit loud but all in all a great experience. We really had a good time and were very satisfied

We waited. Forever. So it's got to be good, right? Shame on us for coming to brunch on Labor Day. I know we were a group of 10, but our 15-20 minute wait was an hour. The staff was very nice and apologetic, but people were lingering. I get it. But if people were lingering, then at least the kitchen... More

I can't say enough good things about this place. My wife and I were coming back from a trip to Indianapolis and decided to stop here for breakfast. It is a bustling place in a cute shopping plaza but it is so well organized with amazing people that you feel like you could be the only one there. The food... More

Though we've most often eaten at their Indy Airport facility, the location in Clay Terrace is also a nice option. The French bistro ambiance is an appropriate fit with this upscale suburban mall. The facility is clean and well maintained. The servers are professional and attentive. The omelets are usually quite good, though our last selection (the daily special: tomato,... More

Let me begin by saying I love Cafe Patachou. The employees are friendly, the service is always great and I've never had an item that I did not care for. The atmosphere while sometimes loud is fun, inviting, and clean. I also love this place for lunch and used to love it when it was open for dinner as well.... More
