Our family of 5 had a wonderful dinner at High Street. We went on a Monday and it was not crowded or noisy. The seafood bisque was voted as the best appetizer by us - absolutely delicious!! The XXX spicy crawfish lived up to its name and made my son sweat. The calamari was also very good. We all enjoyed... More

We returned to High Street Cafe with high hopes..maybe too high. The seating seemed more crowded than we remembered, so tight that the wait staff kept bumping me as they passed. The ahi tuna was excellent as expected...crab cakes just ok with filling I didn't expect...and the chocolate mousse tasted more light cake frosting than what is was supposed to... More

Never a bad meal at this restaurant and remains consistent over the years. Best cajun salads served hot for lunch or dinner.

the high street caffe is a not so hidden gem out side the hustle of the downtown dining area. although parking can be a challenge it is well worth it for the food and eclectic atmosphere of this new Orleans style restaurant. the food is authentic and plentiful. the somewhat dimly lit interior is reminiscent of new Orleans style eateries...

Friends have been recommending this place for years. My husband and I finally visited on a Friday night. The service was exceptional and truly some of the best we've ever experienced. Everyone we encountered made it their mission to make us feel welcome. But...the inside of the place is ugly. It is dark and unhappy-Mardi gras themed and the food... More

We've visited the High Street Caffe many times in the past and this may be the last time. The food used to be very good and consistent. This particular visit it was horrible. I ordered the Etouffee, which you would think would be one of their best dishes since it is a Cajun place. It was obviously ladled from a... More
