We went there on a Wednesday night, and the place was not crowded. Had an absolutely delicious meal. Would recommend the eggplant with shrimp étouffée (the roux was heavenly). The roast duck was perfect, as was my husband's fish. Excellent service. Good wine selection, and for the quality of the food and wine, a very good value.

We had to try twice to eat here. They say they are open until 9:00, but in our experience actually close whenever they feel like it. Don't count on being able to show up late and be served. The first time we arrived just after 8:30 and were told they were closed. The second time we arrived at about 7:45,... More

Had the alligator sausage cheesecake. Amazing blend of flavors, especially with the light and air french bread that they serve.

After spending several hours on a swamp tour at Lake Martin my husband and I walked into Cafe Des Amis. We were referred by a local tour guide to the restaurant. The restaurant was located in Breaux Bridge in a historic building. We were greeted by a friendly waitor and seated shortly after arrival. The menu contained many local favorite... More

We warned our 5th and 7th graders: "We are going to eat in some places on this trip that will require MANNERS." We arrived at Cafe Des Amis on a quiet Wednesday night and the girls (they don't get out much) were awed by its beauty. The service was excellent and the meal ...holy cow. Everything we had was the... More

My husband and I stopped in around 1:00. We were seated and served immediately. The restaurant was over half full at the time. Megan was our waitress, and she was very efficient and friendly, explaining what we were ordering. We had the cheesecake crawfish appetizer which was our favorite along with the crawfish pie and the crawfish cornbread. We thought... More

We came to the Cajun country for the food and to Breau Bridge for Chez Jacqueline. We ate at Cafe des Amis because CJ was closed on a Wednesday night. I shy away from restaurants that rely on live music and tout their breakfast menu, because food is frequently secondary--CdA is famous for its Saturday morning music sessions. Did we... More

For those who love the cajun zydeco culture, this is the place to be "on a Saturday morning", That's right, you can party at many great dance halls in south Louisiana, but the best place for live cajun zydeco music and a first rate breakfast every Saturday morning, is Cafe Des Amis. A must stop and see for anyone visiting... More
