“We are still smiling!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

We made it to Cafe des Amis about 7:45 on Saturday morning. Got a great table, ordered our crawfish etouffee and eggs and grits and were on the dance floor by 8:05. Cher, if you want to have some fun, do some laughing and feel a whole bunch younger, this is the place to be! I grew up in the Cajun country; my wife grew up in the Swiss Alps. She just kept saying "So this is what you've been talking about!" The zydeco band was terrific, everybody in the place was having a good time and we will be back as soon as we can get there. (We hung in till the band stopped playing, around 11 AM.) Breaux Bridge is certainly worth a night in a B&B and an afternoon browsing through the shops in the village. Whatever you do, don't miss the zyedco brunch!

“Anniversary dinner disappointment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

We stopped in Breaux Bridge for the night on the way from New Orleans. We decided to try the cafe', when we walked in the hostess (whom we later heard tell someone she and her grandfather had bought the restaurant) was talking to two women who were sitting near the door, She didn't acknowledge us finished talking and seated us. Our waitress was wonderful. We got the stuffed mushrooms for appetizer which were good. My husband got the crawfish pie which he said had about 10 crawfish, I got the 12 ounce ribeye which was 8 ounces of fat. during the course of our meal another couple came in and the hostess was talking to another couple, they stood there for 5 minutes got mad and left. The hostess never knew they were there.

“Disappointed return visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We went to Cafe des amis 8 years ago and really enjoyed the food and
ambiance and were excited to have an opportunity to go back. Things have changed and we were very disappointed. The crawfish pie was sadly lacking in crawfish. We shared the shrimp appetizer and enjoyed it.

“Couldn't squeeze in for brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I've heard great things. Went on Saturday morning with friends for brunch. We arrived at 8:15 thinking we would get in. No way. Place was packed. We made it to the bar for bloody marys and the party inside was rocking. Food looked great, but there was no way we would get a table within a reasonable amount of time. Next time I'm in the area we will be getting up pretty early to go to Café des Amis.

“Cafe De Amis, Breaux Bridge, LA”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Not a good experience. It started when I tried to call and make a reservation. It took half an hour of calling before someone picked up the phone. Because it was early, and only 2 of us, they told us we didn't need a reservation. When we got there, there was no hostess to seat us, so the bartender seated us and gave us our silverware. We waited over 15 minutes before someone took our drink order, and there were only 4 tables with people at them. Meanwhile, there were 2 ladies sitting not far from us who worked there, but didn't feel the need to help the customers.
We finally placed our food order, and everything came out at once. The appetizers, salad, and entree. The food was okay, not exceptional. I've eaten there before and it was definately better the last time. We were there over 1 1/2 hours. When we were leaving another waitress showed up, and they decided to close early and had the bartender turn people away. No idea why. Won't be going back.
