In our 2 weeks in California we agreed this was the food that stood out the most. Shout out to the awesome waiter who we bumped... More

I've been to the other Cajun Kitchen several times for breakfast and I've never been disappointed. This location didn't disappoint. Good food, good service, nice atmosphere.

I enjoyed a special omlett of spinach, tomatoes, feta, and lemon sausage. It was excellent. This is a fast paced restaurant, get in, eat, and free up your table. Someone wants your table! Parking is free for 75 minutes at the city parking structure nearby.

I had breakfast here with a group of 11 of us, somehow they made space for us without a reservation and were very accommodating. I had shrimp and cheese grits which was more like something you would have for dinner but nice. However I swiftly got serious food envy when my brothers crab cake eggs benedict came out, very nice!... More

Went with Cajuns straight from the Louisiana, and ordered Seafood Gumbo, and Small Gumbo. Was informed by my Guest, that the rue, was not Cajun and someone missed the mark. I ate my Gumbo, because, I have eaten many Gumbos and everyone seems to think that theirs is the best or truly, Cajun, etc. The Server Julia, was wonder and... More

A large variety of food for breakfast to choose from. The place is always full. I have been coming here since I was a kid and it is consistently good food.

I stick to basics when I order breakfast: eggs over easy, home fries, toast, orange juice, coffee. All were good here and so was the service. Popular locals place, which always says something.

Had breakfast here over the weekend. They had fantastic specials and the regular menu looked solid. The Beignets were fantastic. I had the Crabcake Eggs Benedict and my wife had the Breakfast Sandwich. Both were excellent. The plates were full and everything was fresh.
