The food and service are great here. They have unique dishes with large portions. It's not cheap eats, but it's worth it given the quality and quantity of the dishes. Be sure to come hungry. They also make very good specialty coffees (ie. mocha, cappuccino, etc...)

My first time at this location - have been to the Goketa location numerously. The food is always yummy and always a line of people waiting to get in. We ordered the beignets which is a must. I had the corned beef and hash served with 2 eggs. It was the best corned beef and hash ever. My cousin had... More

I love the Cajun Kitchen and have been there many times with family and friends. Recently, I stopped by for a late breakfast. Totally delicious: fried eggs over medium with great, thick bacon. If a restaurant can do a simple meal like that well, they can do anything. My husband likes their breakfast burrito. Try the Cajun Kitchen! You won't... More

I typically LOVE shrimp and grits! Sadly, this one was served swimming in grease! I literally had to pour the excess off before I could take a bite. The beignets were pretty good and my husband said his eggs were fine. We'll try another spot next time we're in town.

We were told about this place on recommendation from a random bloke in the street. It was so good we went back ever single day and tried a whole bunch of the chef specials. In our 2 weeks in California we agreed this was the food that stood out the most. Shout out to the awesome waiter who we bumped... More

I've been to the other Cajun Kitchen several times for breakfast and I've never been disappointed. This location didn't disappoint. Good food, good service, nice atmosphere.

I enjoyed a special omlett of spinach, tomatoes, feta, and lemon sausage. It was excellent. This is a fast paced restaurant, get in, eat, and free up your table. Someone wants your table! Parking is free for 75 minutes at the city parking structure nearby.

I had breakfast here with a group of 11 of us, somehow they made space for us without a reservation and were very accommodating. I had shrimp and cheese grits which was more like something you would have for dinner but nice. However I swiftly got serious food envy when my brothers crab cake eggs benedict came out, very nice!... More

Went with Cajuns straight from the Louisiana, and ordered Seafood Gumbo, and Small Gumbo. Was informed by my Guest, that the rue, was not Cajun and someone missed the mark. I ate my Gumbo, because, I have eaten many Gumbos and everyone seems to think that theirs is the best or truly, Cajun, etc. The Server Julia, was wonder and... More
