In town for the weekend and saw good reviews. We stopped in for lunch but they were busy so we ordered to go. Açaí bowl, salmon ‘bagel’ substituted with GF bread and Cuban breakfast were amazing! We will definitely be back before we leave!

Waiter was very professional. I was confident and trusting in him that I didn’t use a Nima capsules. No issues and I know within 15 minutes often or any CC and it’s been 3 hours.

My wife and I are not celiac, but choose to eat GF. We travel quite a bit and are constantly trying out GF restaurants. This is one of favorites ever. Their GF waffle at breakfast is outstanding. Many other choices that are excellent. You will not go wrong by eating here. Trust me on this one.

The quality and quantity were outstanding.

This place was great. Didn’t get sick.

When i went service wasn’t great. It was on a convention weekend and the place was kind of crazy, so maybe that’s why. Still, a story:

I had a make your own omelet and told them I need it to be cooked separately. When it arrived there was one piece of bacon inside, and bacon wasn’t one of my toppings. So I’m not totally sure about how separate they made it!

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.

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!

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.
