Zydeco breakfast on Saturday mornings is a must for any visitor to Acadiana! But dinner is also great and there is often live music on wednesdays.

Delicious place to stop for breakfast on the weekends, lunch on the weekdays. We opted for a late lunch after a day of hitting the antique/2nd hand shops around Breaux Bridge! Food was delicious; the way Cajun food should be done. It's a smaller restaurant so you get more of the mom and pop cooking on a sophisticated level, but still casual and fun atmosphere. I haven't been yet but if you want to go for the Zydeco breakfast on Saturday mornings YOU BETTER GET THERE EARLY. I tried a few weekends ago but it was booked up at 9:30am. Usually a line outside the building. Breakfast is reasonably priced and I believe its $5 cover to listen to some amazing live music while you dine! Call ahead for reservations. A definite place to stop in if you are in the area any time of the day/week!

Stopped here because of a Frommers guidebook recommendation and we were not disappointed. We ordered appetizers only, including BBQ shrimp, alligator cheesecake, cornbread and crabcakes, all interesting and excellent. The live music and Russian icons over the bar were nice touches. Friendly service.

Music and dancing with breakfast? Mais oui en la Louisiane! We were staying at a hotel in Lafayette and, in perusing the local attractions pamphlets, we saw one for this place and decided to try it. This place opens at 7:30, we got there about 7:20, got in line, and managed to get a seat; the music starts around 8:30 and the dancing starts about 8:30.05. You have to pay a $5 per person cover charge at the door but if you order breakfast, that charge is refunded on your ticket. The food was good but the people, music, and dancing was great! All in all, happy-happy!!

Food is good but that is not the reason to tarry a while here on Saturday mornings-the music and dancing and people watching are what it's all about.
