“Great spot!”
Reviewed 28 November 2013

Drove from Texas-Alabama and took a chance stopping here for coffee. Lovely interiors, very cozy. Loved the cornbread and veggie chili, the latte, and most of all the charming hostess/owner.

“Good lunch stop and great art”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

We stumbled upon this cafe for lunch after an awesome Cajun country swamp tour . There was a small menu of the day but it was freshly cooked and very tasty. We had very good chowder and salad at very reasonable prices and really enjoyed this large, clean cafe with an art exhibition , fair trade goods and much to look at . Service was prompt and friendly . We would recommend it to anyone.

“What a surprise”
Reviewed 15 November 2013 via mobile

Can't say that I was expecting this great vegetarian restaurant in crawfish country. The soup was great and not cream based. The salad was fresh, but the biggest delight was the homemade rootbeer. Save room for one of there coffee beverages

“Very good vegetarian cafe”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

Lovely arty style cafe. Simple fresh food, salads and sandwiches, all vegetarian. Serves coffee in the mornings and lunches. Like eating in the home of an eccentric friend.

“A coffee shop with live Cajun music”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

Six of us stopped here on a Sunday afternoon as it was very close to Au Bayou Teche Bed and Breakfast where we were all staying. This is a large coffee shop with lots of tables and chairs. They offer a large selection of hot and cold beverages including coffee, tea and fruit juices. The best part of our stop here was the live Cajun music jam where people just come in with their instruments and join in and start playing. Surprisingly the music was great. It was a fun way to spend the afternoon.
