    Since the gf bread switch I have not eaten here as often, used to go twice a week. Native oat bread is made in a shared kitchen on shared equipment, the staff does not share this. Not safe for those with celiac disease like me!!!

    Staff was extremely knowledgeable about Celiac and cross contamination. I have eaten here 3 times in 3 days and everything is great. They put a little flag on your plate to show it’s gluten free and do everything they can to prevent cross contamination. I tested their gluten free waffle with my Nima tester and it came out truly gluten free :)

    Menu items labeled as gluten free are misleading - the soup said gluten free but was served with croutons. Waiter didn’t seem knowledgeable on why this was a problem. Would eat here again but would ask more questions about the food and prep.

    Celiac, ate there two days in a row. On the second day I learned the candied walnuts were prepared in flour on their spinach salad. Their protocol, marking your food with flags is good but don't let your guard down. Question the prep of your food. I will eat there again. I will just be more careful.

    Staff is very knowledgeable, menu has many GF options to choose from - with openness to customizing other menu options for food allergies. Food was wonderful!

    My husband and I recently visited Indy. Because I need to eat gluten free, it can be hard to eat while traveling, so we always appreciate restaurants that offer allergen free meals. Cafe Patachou has so many options for gluten free eaters (even waffles!). We ate at the restaurant four times because the food was that amazing. In addition to the food, price was reasonable, and the service was excellent. Each server was highly attentive to my allergy. During one visit, we witnessed a man outside the restaurant get hit by a car; one of the servers ran outside with an umbrella and stood in the pouring rain to shield first responders. He then came back in and finished his shift!

    Yes yes YES!!! Excellent wait staff. Very knowledgeable about gluten free. Safe for a Celiac. Very busy place so plan ahead and arrive early. SO WORTH THE WAIT! They have many gf options. I had the Simple Broken Yolk (eggs, white cheddar & avocado on gf toast & fruit). Toast is prepared in a separate gf toaster. AMAZING! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    GF Belgian waffles! This food was absolutely amazing… You would never know that it was gluten-free. Very trendy vibe in this busy downtown cafe. Definitely a place I will return to next time I'm downtown Indy.

    For breakfast or lunch this place is great. Many things on the menu either are gf or can be made to be including the sandwiches. I really appreciate a place that I don't have to educate and this is one of them. tip: Ask if the specials are gf.

    They said their French toast was gluten free and it was not...I found out they use the same batter for everyone and use gluten free bread. Be careful.

    Wow! Amazing food here! Was impressed in how they handled my order and pointed out what was gluten free. Definitely a safe and tasty option for someone with celiac. Literally the only thing I could knock, is its a bit hard to figure out which items are gluten free as they are mixed throughout the menu... but who cares! There are great options and it tasted awesome.

    Excellent restaurant for GF choices. Delicious, fresh, fairly priced food, and 2 pieces of Udi's GF bread is a reasonable $2 charge.
