Once again a fine lunch at this little cafe in Slidell

This is the fourth time in 5 years that I have dined at this café and it did not disappoint. My wife and I had the Crawfish Etouffe and split a shrimp Poboy. The first time I visited this place I had the Crawfish Ettouffe and it was a first time experience, one never to be forgotten it was so... read more

Can't review the food because we never got to see the menu but the service was terrible. We were told to sit anywhere & no one ever came. 5 minutes later other customers came in and were greeted with a straw & menu. I won't be returning.

I found the food ok, but the prices are high. Red beans and rice $9.95 is a rip off. The beans were nothing to write home about. There are too many other places at eat in Slidell that are far cheaper and better

Had a Mardi Gras dinner at Camilia's (although chain restaurants were open, several other local restaurants were closed on this holiday; who'd have known?). On this evening they offered a special, Taste of New Orleans: fried catfish, shrimp bisque, seafood gumbo, red beans & rice. Wow. Lots of food, and delicious - everything. When I asked the server what the... More

I'm a fan of the food, and I love the funky vibe. Sometimes meet friends who live in Lacombe here for lunch. Holy cow, was the service slow this time. I guess they figured we weren't in a hurry.

The family went to Camellia Cafe tonight and I didn't prep by reading other reviews first, so we went in blind, based on recommendations from my wife's travelling customers. Camellia Cafe has a very casual atmosphere when you walk in, looks to seat about 100 guests, and has a bar with seating for about 6-7 people eating individually. We ordered... More

This cafe is always full of locals judging from the license plates in the parking lot. Very good food, reasonably priced. Causal atmosphere good for dining with children.
