Location Description:

Since 2000, Gabriela Pataro has been dishing out healthy meals in portions fitting of a café serving healthy meals, luring folks to her family-friendly neighborhood spot. The free Wi-Fi is certainly a big draw for the regulars who linger. But menu options like the pancakes made with a blend of flours and grains and the Peruvian chicken risotto are among the main attractions. Pataro's cafe isn't just kid-friendly in words or by the presence of high chairs. Fifteen percent of the kids' menu sales go to North Texas Food Bank's Food 4 Kids program, which provides children with backpacks containing food to eat when the young ones aren't in school. What's more, the kitchen will feed your dog the likes of doggie meatloaf on the patio replete with a bubbling multi-tiered fountain and a fireplace for cool nights.
