Brand-new brunch restaurant opens in a historic downtown building



Indianapolis, Indiana – On Thursday, November 16, Patachou at the Stutz, the most recent location of Martha Hoover’s well-known Cafe Patachou business, opened at 1060 N. Capitol St.

The restaurant’s hours of operation are 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekends, so customers have plenty of time to enjoy its brunch selection.

With a main dining area that can seat about 75 people, the venue is unique in that it has a private dining and conference area with a wet bar, which is a first for Cafe Patachou locations.

A characteristic that sets it apart is the widespread application of a gentle shade of halcyon blue, which has been Hoover’s preferred paint color for more than 40 years and is evocative of her own style.

“I’m a big people-watcher. I like hotel lobbies that invite you in and make you feel really welcome, where you want to sink in and have a glass of wine and listen to the music,” Hoover said. “We hope that people will want to sink into the cozy custom furniture and think of the restaurant as an extension of their homes.”

Enjoy full-service dining while relishing the signature Cafe Patachou brunch experience at the oxblood marble counters.

The walls are covered with original artwork by local artist Kaila Austin, which features pictures of prominent Black activists and leaders. The artwork was purchased from the BUTTER Art Fair.

An oblique reference to Cafe Patachou’s philosophy is made via built-in shelving that features a selection of books written only by feminist poets, philosophers, and writers.

The signature Cafe Patachou experience is what customers can expect: breakfast and lunch menus with dishes made with quality, frequently organic, locally sourced ingredients.
