Nice coffee and baked goods served in a location that's close to many other restaurants. Worth it to avoid paying convention center or Hilton prices.

Spectacular coffee and scones that were crumbly and light. It is a cash only business, but well worth making sure your wallet is not empty. Wonderful morning stop!

It is a blessing and a curse to work right above this cafe! The coffee is great and the baked goods are made fresh every morning. I particularly like the savory scones and cinnamon scones. Keep in mind that Cafe Patteen only accepts cash.

It’s always funny to see a line outside of Caribou or Starbucks when one of the best local coffee shops in all of my travels all over the US is right nearby. I always get the large Sumatra, the owner knows my order, it is...More

I loved their scones! I don't even have a reason to go downtown, but once I get a craving from a scone from Cafe Patteen, I am there. Go, you won't be sorry. I love their raspberry white chocolate scone.

Right now I'm eating one of the best scones I've ever had and enjoying a nice cup of coffee. I found this coffee house on the internet because I was sick of Caribou Coffee. The atmosphere was so pleasant. Everyone was very friendly- it seemed...More
