Staff was knowledgeable & menu labeled GF options. I’m very sensitive & did not get sick! Had the gf waffle
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 :)
Food was delicious, was just passing through Indianapolis and didn't realize I was going to be eating at a rich hoity toity place, very pricey.
Great Coffee! And Memosa for Breakfast ☺ Very Busy Place !!!
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!
Gorgeous food! Lots of great gluten free options.
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!
Wow! Simply wow. Fantastic omelette, cinnamon toast like real. Coffee delicious!!
Amazing breakfast, sandwiches for lunch. The wait staff is well versed on celiac. I will eat there again and again.
The waffles are delicious!! And the staff knowledgeable, helpful, and careful. Will be going back to explore more of the menu.
This was a great find! The food was delicious and the service was exceptional. Our server, Michelle, was very knowledgeable about the gluten free options and attentive to all our dietary concerns. Will definitely be back!
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.
great job with gluten even though they were very busy.
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.
Great GF meal they pay close attention food was great.
AMAZING! Very celiac friendly and have amazing gluten free waffles and omelettes
Awesome food and service. Clearly defined menu and a lot of great options
Food is amazing and they have some great gluten free options.
Amazing food & knowledgeable staff. Breakfast is my favorite!
Awesome service, knowledgeable staff!
Dedicated toaster and allergy alert on my order ticket. Oh, and the food is really good too.
powerful food, outstanding service. gf items and they ask about allergies to avoid xcontamination,
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, this place is great!! Very knowledgeable staff and the food Is outstanding!! I had the roast turkey on udi's and the Cuban breakfast for tomorrow morning. Highly recommend!
Very friendly accommodating staff and gluten free bread available. Had the egg and salmon sandwich w/ fruit and it was fine for a simple meal before my flight.
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.
Ate here (downtown location) almost every day during our trip to Indy. We had soup and sandwich and the gf bread was good as well as safe. Going for breakfast tomorrow
Gluten free waffles were delicious! Staff friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this place.
Excellent restaurant for GF choices. Delicious, fresh, fairly priced food, and 2 pieces of Udi's GF bread is a reasonable $2 charge.
Just fabulous. Ate here every day I was in town. So many great, yummy, gf choices and the service is excellent!
My favorite Indy GF spot.
Salads are amazing. All dressings are gf. Love the coffee bar.
Great options for someone with Celiac!!! Love this place!!!
My new favorite brunch spot! Breakfast can be so tough to find gluten free, so Patachou is my favorite for a weekend brunch or lunch! It’s a great atmosphere. I’ve come here many times and never had an issue. The cinnamon toast is my favorite. If you are very sensitive or have celiac, make sure to mention it and ask for them to grill the toast rather than putting it in the toaster. And it will come out with a little flag so you know it’s GF! I’ve also had many of the omelettes and sandwiches - all delicious!
This is not your usual Patachou. No separate kitchen or toaster. The waitress warned me of cross contamination, listened intently as I said I could not eat gluten or dairy, to include butter or milk, then brought me buttered toast. The bread was at least GF.
Love this place, but have been disappointed with the switch in bread for those with celiac! Three stars due to the fact that the staff was not aware initially how the bread was made...in a shared kitchen with shared equipment. Definitely not safe for those with celiac!! I have been sick eating the bread, along with several friends. Staff should be transparent in telling those ordering gf that the bread is made in a shared facility on shared equipment.
This was a little stressful. Lots of gf options with lots of cross contamination. I have Lara bars and almonds for travel, but I decided to try the turkey chili based on another celiac review. I Nima tested it to make sure, and it was safe. The waitress was not well informed and seemed annoyed when I asked about the cooking utensils, pans, toaster, etc. But I’m happy to have a safe option in a sea of cc!
If you have celiacs, beware. The GF bread is toasted in the same toaster and utensils used to make sandwiches are used making all sandwiches- cross contamination is high and guaranteed. The turkey Chili is good and the salads are made to order. I was fortunate to have a server who also has celiacs who kept me safe
GF waffle excellent, server very knowledgeable
They have gluten free bread so you can get one of their yummy sandwiches.
I am at odds with Patachou. The restaurant has a hip and modern vibe. They use fresh ingredients and have a decent menu, but it just doesn't thrill me, the prices seem a little high, and the food is just OK. Like many restaurants, Patachou isn't gluten free, but they do offer some items on the menu that can be accommodated, such as the omelets, salads, and sandwiches. They do offer Udi's bread, for a $1.50 up charge, but they don't have a separate toaster for the bread. I have gotten sick here as a result of CC.
