Misty and her crew catered a party for 35 non-locals, and did so with great aplomb. She worked with us to get the perfect menu in our budget, and the food was fantastic!! The crawfish gravy is not to be missed!

We arrived five minutes ahead of our 6:00 reservation on Monday night and were seated immediately. The first thing that we noticed was how dark it was in the restaurant, so dark that we couldn't read the menus without turning on our phones. I'm always...More

We decided to have lunch here (on a Friday) because of reviews. Particularly the pastries. It's a very small yet cozy establishment but with one restroom to serve both men/women...if you don't jump up as soon as someone exits you'll surely miss a turn lol...More
