Had the crawfish etouffee,blackeyed peas,and carrot souffle.The ettouffee was $9.99 and pretty much tasteless.Didn't even taste like seafood.Tasted like rice and gravy with crawfish. The black-eyed peas tasted like they came out of a can. The carrot soufle was very nice an tasty.

This was a pleasant place to enjoy a lunch buffet. The food is pleasant and there is varied choice. We had the blackened fish,roast beef, mac and cheese and corn bread and some crab salad. With drinks it came to $25. The service was good and it was a pleasant stop.

Our family loves Piccadilly! They have the best food. Everything is good from the soups and salads to the desserts. Their selection of food is huge. The people who work there are so friendly and helpful. I could eat at Piccadilly every day of the week!

The food is typical cafeteria style food but up a notch since it is in Lafayette. I think everything is good. Their gumbo is not authentic gumbo but a good soup - just to let you know if you wanted real gumbo. All their desserts are homemade and the chocolate cream pie is to die for and I make my... More

Just a great spot for lunch. Reminds me of those treasured trips to the Pickadilly in Beaumont when I was a kid. Unlike Luby's of Texas the dishes here are more local & regional fare. I guess Luby's does that in Texas also. Keep my ratings in mind when comparred to other lunch places. A 5 at Pickadilly does not... More

The Piccadilly is a chain of cafeterias across the South with its headquarters in Baton Rouge. The Piccadilly in the Oil Center in Lafayette has been here at least since my childhood in the early 1960s. There's a second Piccadilly in Lafayette, on South Johnston Street which in recent years has become the main commercial area. As cafeterias go, these... More
