a favorite sunday brunch spot for my family. Warm weather outdoor seating near the coy pond. Cold weather indoor seating and a wood burning fireplace. Wonderful coffee and warm beignets. Delicious omelets always plump and steamy hot. Great owners, hosts and wait staff. Kind service. Daily specials with great cajun choices. Nice large bar area with high top table seating

This restaurant is well off the beaten path, and my husband and I seek out these types of places. We like to support locals and we like to avoid all the hustle and bustle when we get a rare night away without our kids. We chose to sit outside on the patio and it was so nice and peaceful. There...

Lunch is served from 11-3 Mon-Sat. Also serve brunch on Sat and Sun. Had the special of the day a pasta with blackened chicken in a tomato cream sauce. Very delicious. An outside patio is also available with seating. Their dishes combine creole and Sicilian together to create mouth watering tastes. Don't be fooled by the outward appearance of the... More

My top spot in Louisville for Brunch. My group of 7 had a great brunch experience sitting outside near the fish pond - beautiful setting. The food and the service were both top notch even though this place was busy. We had the Eggs Sardou, Tavern French Toast and some basic egg dishes - all were very good (the French... More

I had high hopes for this evening. We selected outdoor seating near the fishpond and settled in for a special dinner. The stars were not aligned though. The service was mediocre. The food was mediocre. Something as simple as a bread basket would have helped. It was clear that Selena's is a popular place, but I was disappointed. Perhaps we... More

Selena's looks like it would be a casual joint with fried foods and burgers. The building is older and parking lot gravel. It has a concrete floor and casual tables. There's a bar when you first walk through the door and a choice between inside and outside seating. They have done a lot to the outside area to make it... More

Very cool place - lots of atmosphere. Staff very friendly and accomodating. They have a wonderful patio outside. Some may not appreciate the trains that occasionally go by but I thought it adds to the mood. The food was mouth watering good and plentiful. We could have shared one meal easily but I really didn't mind having leftovers at all.... More

Have eaten lunch here a few times with my girlfriends, one of our favorite meeting places. Had dinner with my husband outside on the patio & found it very pretty & relaxing. Great friendly service from the minute we walked in. My husband loves Gumbo & has had it many places as we travel & he thinks it's one of... More

My favorite location for Sunday brunch. Beignets for starters, then country ham, eggs, grits all for less than $30. My wife and I add another vegetable and meat for less than $40. Includes coffee and bloody mary.
