I've enjoyed this place many times so this is a late post but it worth a post! My favorite drinks are the different craft mimosas especially the the pineapple. I love the the food and posh atmosphere! To single out one dish is hard but I really like the sliders! This place gets busy on the weekend so you wanna... More

My husband and I went for the first time for breakfast after seeing the restaurant in Southern Living. We are so glad we made the two hour trip. Sweet baby breesus was amazing- the sweet cane syrup with the spicy boudin balls was a perfect combination. Grits were not seasoned so I didn't eat any after the first bite, and... More

Excellent food in cajun style. Don't make the mistake to choose something similar to the plain american breakfast but follow the waiter advice (especially tim is very nice). t

Not sure I need to say more... That dish is the epitome of what the Louisiana culinary scene is all about. We arrived at 9:15 on Sunday and were seated right away. The place has a wonderful atmosphere and the staff is welcoming. The only negative comment was that we had to wait 40 minutes to get our food once... More

I came here for brunch expecting a very eclectic, artsy vibe, and that's exactly what I got. This place is the epitome of cool. While the aesthetics definitely did not disappoint, the food somewhat did. However, I know that I am not the correct person to judge. Personally, I prefer a more traditional breakfast, diner style. The French Press gives... More

Six friends and I had Sunday breakfast. Our server was knowledgeable, efficient and friendly. I like the atmosphere of the restaurant. My choice today was French toast with cream cheese and bananas topped with berry-champagne compote. I added scrambled eggs and sausage. Everything was served just as I ordered it. My Coke glass was filled as necessary. Very impressed and... More

A friend of my wife told us that we had to go to this place for brunch if we were in Lafayette. I didn't really want to go since our hotel offered a free breakfast and it is pretty good, but I played along. One of the best decisions I made all trip. It is a small place, laid back... More
