I've visited New Orleans and the French Quarter many times and love it there. So I was pleasantly surprised to find a slice of the Quarter right here in Saskatoon of all places.
A couple colleagues and I were actually heading to another restaurant when we passed by Bon Temps Cafe and liked the vibe coming from the place as we looked in the window. So we changed plans and stepped inside. Walking in felt like walking into a place right off Dauphine or Royal or Bourbon St in the Quarter right down to the tin ceiling tiles.
The food is a very good take on Cajun and Creole cuisine like you'd find down there. We ordered oysters to start and they were quite small. Frankly not worth the price but they were fresh. My crawfish étouffée on the other hand was well proportioned and excellent tasting.
I don't know how Saskatooners feel about Cajun or Creole cuisine but I love it and judging from the crowd in Bon Temps at the time, it seems to be catching on with the locals. I will definitely be coming back to eat next time I'm here for business.
