    So the freak shakes are to die for! Don’t sleep on there, especially the biscoff! The portion sizes for the meals are MASSIVE and taste is something else. Amazing food. We had to take an entire meal away with us to have for lunch as just couldn’t fit it all in! Not at all sad about this outing and will be back without hesitation!

    The great: the food - OMG - thought I’d died and gone to heaven. I had the French toast - the caramel version. There are multiple options for sweet tooth’s like me. They kindly substituted their gelato for the cream. The dulce de leche sauce was amazing and their gelato forms the basis for many of these dishes and their freak shakes and I can see why. It is the right balance of creamy but light. I could have eaten a bucket full of it and still want more! Sooo good! We also bought some takeaway sweet things - donut-like creations. I don’t like donuts but these were delicious! The not so great: table service. There is none. But the staff were all so obliging and friendly it made lining up at the counter to order fee not so bad. The part I really didn’t like: the venue size. Inside there are three small tables which I was lucky to book one but I had to drag myself out of bed on a weekend morning to be there by 8:30. There was no ambience with people cramming in to place orders and pay for meals at the counter. They do also have outside tables and have done what they can with plastic sheeting protection and outdoor heaters but it really didn’t appeal in the middle of an icy Canberra morning. These guys have such a winning formula that it seems a pity not to have a larger venue. I’m sure they would easily fill one with their satisfied repeat customers. Overall I found my new go-to breakfast place. I’m in lluuurve…

    I had wanted a chicken burger which was sold out by 12 o’clock lunch time ! So I ordered a slow cook populated pork which was supposed to have caramelised onions and other ingredients on it. The pork was overwhelmingly the only thing you could see and taste. It therefore had no other flavour. Very dissatisfied as it was my birthday, the food was average and their website states best food something or other… probably good for kids and young adults only .

    I love this breaky place and the food is always amazing! Unfortunately, on Sunday we just had some mix ups with our booking. The girl who was working didn’t really know how to fix it and wasn’t overly helpful. In saying that, the food was amazing as usual and we’ll happily return for the meals!

    Have had great experiences previously here over a year ago but today the highlight was the coffee, the lowlights were the service and food. Staff seemed confused about the reservation system even though more than one table was free and we had booked and confirmed, and unfortunately my friend’s taco had pockets of extreme saltiness.

    The coffee was undrinkable. The freakshakes are no longer freakshakes. The desert display was a couple of unimaginative donuts. New management and it is no longer a great place.

    The food was good however service was pretty abysmal. Made a reservation but had no table reserved, was lucky enough to get a table however was placed near the register so was a constant back and forth of butts in my face. Took a long time to get acknowledged by staff for any kind of service and everything took a very long time to come out.

    The food here is always very good, and the service was polite and warm. We only had a slight frustration at making a booking at 11am but not being seated for over fifteen minutes. Once we’re seated food was very prompt and they thanked us for our patience, I do think though perhaps that if a booking is expected then equally the customers punctuality should also be respected.

    Breakfast/brunch is my favourite meal of the day. I like trying out new places for new dishes and takes on tried & tested dishes. Patissez is without question the best place I have eaten. I would (actually, wish I could) happily eat her every day for a fortnight, trying a new dish every day their selection is so enticing. Thank you team at Patissez. See you tomorrow before regretfully having to head back to Orange:)
