“Mais, dat place is Yummy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Delicious place to stop for breakfast on the weekends, lunch on the weekdays. We opted for a late lunch after a day of hitting the antique/2nd hand shops around Breaux Bridge! Food was delicious; the way Cajun food should be done. It's a smaller restaurant so you get more of the mom and pop cooking on a sophisticated level, but still casual and fun atmosphere. I haven't been yet but if you want to go for the Zydeco breakfast on Saturday mornings YOU BETTER GET THERE EARLY. I tried a few weekends ago but it was booked up at 9:30am. Usually a line outside the building. Breakfast is reasonably priced and I believe its $5 cover to listen to some amazing live music while you dine! Call ahead for reservations. A definite place to stop in if you are in the area any time of the day/week!

“Unexpectedly good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012 via mobile

Stopped here because of a Frommers guidebook recommendation and we were not disappointed. We ordered appetizers only, including BBQ shrimp, alligator cheesecake, cornbread and crabcakes, all interesting and excellent. The live music and Russian icons over the bar were nice touches. Friendly service.

“"AY-EEEE"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Music and dancing with breakfast? Mais oui en la Louisiane! We were staying at a hotel in Lafayette and, in perusing the local attractions pamphlets, we saw one for this place and decided to try it. This place opens at 7:30, we got there about 7:20, got in line, and managed to get a seat; the music starts around 8:30 and the dancing starts about 8:30.05. You have to pay a $5 per person cover charge at the door but if you order breakfast, that charge is refunded on your ticket. The food was good but the people, music, and dancing was great! All in all, happy-happy!!

“Saturday morning must do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

Food is good but that is not the reason to tarry a while here on Saturday mornings-the music and dancing and people watching are what it's all about.

“A must do in South Louisiana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

The Saturday morning Zydeco breakfast is unique with its combination of fabulous cajun style breakfast and zydeco music with dancing. Even if you only come for the breakfast, you will be entertained by a local Zydeco group playing live music and locals dancing it up as only the fun loving people of South Louisiana can do.
