Description: A little taste of New Orleans at Baka Blues Cafe`...a quaint restaurant...
A little taste of New Orleans at Baka Blues Cafe`...a quaint restaurant positioned by the lily lake and next to the majestic Baka tree at Shop 9e, Arts Village, Pacific Harbour. While away an hour or two under our blue umbrellas, spot our local white heron and feel like you've been transported to a Louisiana bayou. Our barbeque and Cajun inspired menu features Southern favorites as well as mouth watering in-house creations, garden fresh salads and enticing appetizers.So for a little taste of New Orleans come listen to the Blues, nibble on baby back sizzlers, savour the flavors of smoked chicken served in a pineapple boat, be surprised by how well Cajun spices marry with South Pacific mud crabs, tuck into a Texas T-Bone, and sip on a refreshing margarita or mint julep...or two!!We'll help you keep your "mojo"...

I came here for lunch and the place was pretty empty. There was only one girl waiting on the tables. We ordered as soon as we sat down, the food took a little bit to come out. The fish and chips were very tasty and the coleslaw was divine. It didn't look like much, but the coleslaw was flavorful and... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review of Baka Blues Cafe` Enclie... "the coleslaw stole the show." You noted that our place was pretty empty.

After reading previous reviews we were looking forward to this place. The first time I inquired early in the day about booking and was told it wasn't necessary. Returned in the evening and a band was playing and we couldn't get a table. Mid-week we returned to find the place almost empty and, once we sat down to order, we... More
