Café Patachou is a refreshing spot to get brunch in downtown Indianapolis. Sitting in this café, I was overwhelmed with delicious aromas and cool, uplifting indie pop music. As for the coffee, the café offers about five different custom brews at a self-serve coffee bar, including their special banana-nut coffee. This is great because depending on the day, the wait can be anywhere from immediate seating to an hour, so you can freely fill up on coffee while you wait. For my meal, I ordered the Cuban Breakfast. This south-of-the-border dish included two fried eggs, rice, black beans, avocado and white cheddar with a spinach-jalapeño sauce on the side. I have to say, this was one of the best breakfasts I have ever had. It was the perfect combination of creamy and spicy. I also split the Croissant French toast Patachou with my dad. This French toast was simply a flaky croissant flattened and cooked in the same way classic French toast is, then covered in powdered sugar, pecans and warm syrup. This sweet and flaky French toast was a great complement to my spicy Cuban Breakfast. The pricing is very reasonable; almost everything on the menu is about $10 or less, making Café Patachou a great place to get breakfast or lunch with your friends, without spending too much money and burning a hole in your pocket. Overall, I cannot wait to go back to this restaurant. This is definitely one of my favorite finds in Indy so far.
