We've been here many times. It is home style soul food. Not fancy but tasty. Made with love. Fun music plays, the family that runs the joint is friendly. The price is a bit high but most if not all of the ingredients are organic and locally sourced so actually pretty reasonable for green dining.

Not sure why we chose to dine at “Bless my Sole”, but glad we did. The food was great (mostly Cajun) and the staff is awesome. I can’t say we had fast service, but we did have excellent service. We had the pleasure and honor of meeting “Mama” who owns, manages and is the head chef. She is an incredible... More

Have always loved the food in New Orleans and now we have it here. Fried okra, catfish and gumbos. Small wine list, but good.

We enjoyed dinner here one evening. Everything we ordered was good. We tried fried okra and Desiree's delights and found both enjoyable. The ribs were perfect. Vanilla carrots were different. all in all worth a visit.

This place is the real deal. I enjoy visiting my family in NOLA as often as I can and this restaurant would fit right in there. The food was outstanding and the service even better. The Cajun spice is right up there with the best I've had. I hope to have food this good on my next trip to Louisiana!

My husband and I recently spent a night in Eureka, CA and searched for nearby restaurants. Bless My Soul Cafe was only a couple of blocks away, and I noticed it had been featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, a show we enjoy watching. This little restaurant far exceeded our expectations in service as well as amazing food. I ordered... More

We found this place at random as we were milling around Eureka looking for dinner. My husband and I are from the south so having a little southern comfort food and hospitality was just what we were looking for. Its a fun atmosphere and very laid back. We ordered some hush puppies to hold us over since I'd read some... More
