Gluten free sourdough!!!!! Had a very yummy breakfast sandwich. Food comes out marked as gluten free, and they asked me if I have an allergy or a preference.

As per the recommendation we got the gluten free waffles and they were amazing, there was even an allergy flag on my plate! We got the chicken chili to go for dinner later and it was also delightful! Would highly recommend!

They put the gluten free sourdough bread slices on the grill instead of in the toaster to avoid cross contamination and my omelet came out with a flag indicating gluten free 😁 The waitress also hooked me up with a free gluten free brownie called "the best gluten free brownie in the world"

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.

Cafe Patachou does an excellent job with preparing allergy food separately, just tell the server of any allergies when ordering. They have gluten free waffles, pancakes and syrup in addition to gluten free bread! They also make gluten free cookies and brownies that are delicious!

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!

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.

They recently switched from Udi’s to Native Bread which contains oats and they are not certified or purity protocol oats.

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!

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!
