THE PATTEE CAFE
Come aboard The Pattee Cafe for a dining experience that will be a memorable occasion. Enjoy our menu with a variety of American Cuisine that will be sure to fancy your taste buds.
Within the Pattee Cafe are 3 distinct dining areas that'll take you back to the time when trains were king. The Arrow Room, named for a Milwaukee passenger train, is a recreation of an early 20th Century railroad dining car, complete with coffered ceiling, wood paneling, and murals showing the countryside near Perry by Bouton artist Dennis Adams. The Challenger and Hiawatha Rooms, also named for Milwaukee trains are designed in the Arts and Crafts style frequently found in depot restaurants and railroad hotel dining rooms. The Challenger Room is topped with murals of Perry's Railroad past by Iowa artist John Preston remind you of the panorama passengers viewed from the train that was Queen of the Rails.
Named for the electric train that shuttled travelers back and forth between Perry and Des Moines throughout the early part of the 20th Century, this lounge is decorated in the style of the Midwest's best-known Arts and Crafts designer, Frank Lloyd Wright. Known as Prairie Style, Wright's designs dot the Midwest. Photos of the Inter-Urban, Perry's railroad history, and the people who made the town line the walls. Relax and enjoy a great drink menu daily in the Inter-Urban Lounge.

Message from the Hotel Pattee and The Pattee Cafe
To all of our guests and supporters, we are so grateful for your continued support of our restaurant during these unprecedented times. Our Family Meal program has allowed us to keep employees working and to provide excellent meals for our community. We continue to evaluate the Governor’s comments related to businesses being permitted to re-open in the near future. While re-opening is our goal, we want to be prepared and make sure it is handled in the best way.
Starting next week, May 4th, we are suspending our Family Meals until we are permitted to re-open the restaurant. During this time, we are adding new equipment to our kitchen, repairing equipment, creating new menus, working with State guidelines on social distancing and how we can set up our restaurant safely, and thoroughly cleaning/sterilizing the entire Hotel & restaurant. Our staff has been working hard for weeks getting the property cleaned, repairs made, policies created, and training completed to be ready to welcome our guests back soon.
When we come back, we will be prepared. We value your patronage and will do everything we can to make sure your experience in our Hotel and/or restaurant is excellent each and every time. Please stay healthy and safe and we will see you soon.
