Oh my gosh, what a fun experience! Local musicians just playing together, enjoying life. Great boudin sliders and a nice cold glass of wine. Music was great, service was really good. Just a fun must do while in Breaux Bridge!

Stopped by for breakfast and was treated by not only awesome food and service, but to outstanding music by the local artists. A true slice of Americana.

My wife and I stopped in for a morning coffee. The place looks very nice and appears to be popular with the locals. When first entering the café the person behind the counter did not acknowledge us even though there was no one at the counter. Then a local woman came in to get coffee and her order was taken...
