I ruined my dinning visit there by thinking I had lost my ring wiping my fingers and it had been deposited in kitchen trash can. The owner spent a long time combing through the debris looking for it. He later called me of his failed...More

My wife and I are from Cajun country and were in heaven eating here 3 days in a row. Varied menu will meet every dining idiosyncrasy. All food is organic and locally sourced thus the only thing they lack is fried green tomatoes.

The banana pecan french toast was delicious. We didn't try any of the cajun/creole options, but standard breakfast items were great. Good friendly and fast service. The outdoor patio is really nice with a giant tree canopy shading the whole area. They accept cash only.

My husband had a potato boat and I had Tomato Gasser. Both were extremely yummy, filling and well presented. The waitresses were very friendly and the overall environment was fun. We'll be back for certain, thank you!
