Cafe Patachou

Cafe Patachou

The original Cafe Patachou, a “student union for adults” based in Meridian-Kessler, marks its 25th birthday this year and has inspired offshoots such as this downtown location, a huge hit with both the business and weekend crowds. The cinnamon toast is still as thick as a brick, the omelets still have cheeky names (“Hippie with a Benz,” “The Omelette You Can’t Refuse”), and the broken-yolk sandwiches still lure ’em in for lunch. The thing to try these days is the PB&J topped with bacon and jalapeño (on sourdough, for sure); complete with the peppers’ pith and seeds, it may evoke a mini version of the St. Elmo shrimp-cocktail experience. 225 W.
