Sunday Brunch!!!!

All the food at Tope La is very good, but my favorite time to eat there is Sunday Brunch. Very reasonable prices ( including $2 Bloody Mary's) and wonderful and somewhat unique Cajun dishes, like Cajun Eggs Benedict. Great atmosphere, professional and positive wait staff. I can promise you will... read more

I dd not a restaurant of this caliber in Hammond. It was a very pleasant surprise I would definitely return and will probably make a trip just to eat there. The staff was awesome as well as the food. I definitely recommend it

We sooooo look forward to stopping at Tope La in Hammond, LA every time we are driving back to our home in Florida’s Panhandle! The food is creative, fresh and delicious! On our most recent visit, we arrived a little late in the evening, like 8PM, but Tope La still had a significant crowd. In fact, there were more cars... More

We decided we could eat here each day for a week and never run out of options we wanted to order! Their red beans and rice with catfish was delicious as was the chicken breast with crayfish. Portions were large and we actually left with a left-overs which we finished off for dinner! We thought prices were very fair. There... More

My family and I were driving through Hammond and stopped in Topela for dinner and we had an excellent experience! The restaurant was very attractive and welcoming; we enjoyed the low lights, tea light lamps, and excellent service! I had the divine pecan crusted talapia with garlic mashed potatoes and young, fresh green beans...it was absolutely delicious! We enjoyed tasting... More

Tope La is one of those restaurants in Hammond, where I say, "Yea, why don't we go there!". It is never first on my list of where to eat in Hammond, because truth be told, I don't like eating in Hammond. That might be because I live here and the lack of restaurants is annoying. Tope La is a great... More

We went for dinner, wife and two messy boys. Ordered quick, obviously. Kids food came quick (thoughtful): actually very tasty mac&cheese. We had Sugar cane grilled salmon and Tournedo Bayou Lafourche: both would be excellent choices.
