This was my final coffee shop to try in Gainesville and I was not disappointed! They had one of the best and sweetest cortaditos I’ve had in Gainesville and it was absolutely perfect iced! Will definitely be back!

We frequent one of the two Patticakes restaurants in our city often — usually to catch a quick light dinner in the city. The facility is strategically located — always tidy — the staff is ALWAYS friendly and efficient — and the food good. THANK YOU!

Great scones and coffee. The quiche was wonderful. Earlier the music was a bit loud for my studies but they eventually turned it down. The location is really convenient. Don't know how lunch fares. Stop by!
Patticakes replied:
Hi Joanne, thanks for letting us know how much you love our coffee, scones, and quiche! If the music, or anything else, is ever bothering you, please let one of our baristas know, As for lunch, we've heard from many people how great our subs and paninis are, so give them a try sometime and let us know what you think!

Very new-age, industrial feel - fits the theme of the area with depot park and cade nearby, and it's catering to the college crowd. Smaller and less seating than Haile location; also feels less "warm." Still the same great coffee and treats!

Hi Carrie, thanks for stopping by and your feedback. We will definitely take note of the "less warm" feel and work on that. Great to hear you had the same great coffee and treats experience!

Patticakes is one of those places I did not expect to be drawn back to again and again when I saw it from outside the first time. But, their coffee has got me hooked. And as you can expect they have fantastic cupcakes, and other desserts too. Try out the scones, they are the not too sweet buttery goodness kind! They have outdoor seating which faces the plaza outside and is perfect if you plan to spend some time reading or working.

I happened to go in Saturday afternoon about 15 minutes before closing, all the things that where left where already removed when I asked if anything was left the young lady looked over her shoulder to the counter behind her said yes and listed the few they had . Thee was no offer to let me see them better, so I ordered was handed the cupcakes in little cups and told sorry we are out of boxes. I was shocked at how small they where for the price,I might not have even ordered if would have seen them better. I got the feeling I was annoying the two by coming in. I was hoping at least to enjoy the cupcakes but the frosting is disgusting, the chocolate has a odd flavor and the vanilla just isn’t good.

Looking for a coffee shop with amazing beverages, a welcoming atmosphere, and plenty of treats? Patticakes on the Plaza is the perfect mid-day stop to get your caffeine fix and interact with some of the sweetest people in Gainesville. The service is exceptional, and you can always count on the staff to do their best to brighten your day. The location is great for people watching or enjoying some sunshine, and Patticakes usually stays open for evening events and concerts. Grab a table on the shaded patio, or snag a seat at the bar as you enjoy your beverage, snack, or lunch. It's a great place to finish that essay, grab a glass of wine with a friend, or sip on a cafe con leche to start your day. If that's not enough, Patticakes was just awarded the Best Coffee Shop in Gainesville! Highly recommend the turkey panini with pesto mayonnaise and the cafe con leche!

Patticakes never fails to impress. The cupcakes are decadent, the Cuban espresso drinks are so yummy, and if you’re looking for a quick bite you can’t go wrong with a bacon quiche! Everything on the menu is delicious, but my favorite thing about Patticakes is the community. The staff are exceptionally friendly and there’s no better place to take in all Bo Diddley Plaza has to offer than a seat by the bar (and if you ask nicely, they’ll help you open those spectacular garage-windows!) The owner, Jan Patterson, is committed to treating everyone that walks through the doors with a latte of love ❤️

I have been to Patticakes in Haile Village a few times. They have a reward program which is nice. Coffee freshness is very good. Selection is good. My coffee product has not always been the best, once in a while 'l'll l have to take it back for them to tweek. But overall no complaints. Of course cupcakes are always super no matter which one. Pressed sandwiches are terrifuc too, although a bit pricey.

Great location downtown, things are always happening at both didley plaza, where Patticakes is located. From farmer's markets to drum circles, not including the concerts. So there is plenty to watch as you sit at your table and enjoy a coffee in a mug and a fresh cupcake. Little hot for coffee? They also have cold beer! Vegan options too! Deffinitly stop by and check them out!

This is a fantastic place to have downtown, given the area and how well the shop has been put together (love sitting outdoors or indoors when they have the garage/windows opened). It's a nice, relaxing, and enjoyable atmosphere. The coffee itself is very well made, whether made straight up or with flavors. If you choose to go to Starbucks/Maude/Volta instead of here, that's fine, but you are then consciously choosing to spend more $$ on lower quality. Definitely come check it out.

Trying to provide an objective feedback here. Let's start with the positive: The location is great and the decor is industrial chic - very inviting right at the Bo Didley Plaza where the farmer market takes place. The staff I interacted with were very friendly and pleasant, they informed us about the original location and gave us samples for the pastry. The negative: The latte tasted of very bitter/over roasted espresso. The milk consistency was great but the espresso in it was just horrendous. I mentioned this to the staff and they apologized for it. I sincerely hope they talk to their roaster or switch the roaster. I will try them again in some time and will happily change the rating to a higher star (or two) if they fix it. I hate to give bad reviews but I hope this makes the owner realize the poor quality of the coffee served and we all can enjoy this great looking new addition to the town.

The bacon quiche and cold brew coffee are a favorite of mine for breakfast, the black tie cupcake and cold brew coffee are a delicious snack that's my favorite and ice cream for desert.

These people are amazing. They have another store in Haile Plantation that we regularly drive to, so we are very glad they opened this new location closer to our home. They are even going to bring vegan cupcake options. They don't have a web site for the location yet, but the manager told us it's coming up soon.
