We walked to this restaurant from the Pinhook Hilton as it was the only decent place around. We weren't disappointed. Lovely building, professional staff and great food. Not cheap but worth the extra. Particularly liked Cajun Sharing Starter.

An historic house set back from a busy highway.We were advised to book but in fact for the whole of our time there they only had 3 tables occupied.The menu is not extensive but is imaginative which I prefer .The wine list is quite long but lacks the variety we are accustomed to in the UK.We both started with the...

My husband and I went to Lafayette to go to a concert and this meal was the highlight of our trip! We called around lunch to make reservations since the reviews said reservation recommended and to our surprise we got a table right next to the fireplace! From the outside this looked like an older home but as you walked... More

We try to dine here everytime we're in the area. Love the quaint atmosphere, attentive staff and delicious food. We had the turtle soup, crawfish beignets and Louisiana crab cakes, then toured the herb garden out back; love the cypress doors, floors and fireplace trimmings - all original. Would definitely recommend.

According to TA reviews, one of the top 10 in Lafayette. Well deserved ratings. Café is in a historic building, dining rooms are very comfortable, service was very good, and the food was excellent. My Turtle Soup was very good as was the fish main course.

From the setting to the tour by the owner it was a lovely experience! The setting is a well maintained, quite dining experience. The wait staff is well versed and well trained in making the diner feel confident in their choices, thank you Max! The turtle soup, grouper, and quail were wonderful! The desert was outstanding! A very enjoyable 39th... More

We celebrated Thanksgiving at Cafe Vermilionville...and the ambience, service and food was outstanding. My husband is a true Cajun and thought the turtle soup was some of the best...his birthday is right around the corner and I was going to take him to another Lafayette restaurant but decided a return visit is warranted so he can enjoy his turtle soup...

Went for holiday office luncheon. Our group was treated very well. The servers were on point, very professional. The food was excellent, everyone's food came out hot and freshly prepared. It was enjoyed by all. Definitely a special place to have a meal. Would absolutely return here again.
