Cafe des Amis / Breaux Bridge, LA
Eggs Begnaud w/Crawfish Étouffée covered Biscuts and Boudin Sausage
Opened in 1890 as a General Store, it has gone thru two fires, casket manufacturing, apparel shop, and art house before ending as a coffee shop in 1992. Was not long after that food was being served depending on how much catfish could be bought for $200 every week. Open for lunch and dinner, I am going to devote this entry to the breakfast. Fresh Beignets, Chicory Coffee, Stuffed Boudin Pigs Ears (long beignets), Crawfish Omelets, Biscuits smothered in Étouffée, Grilled Boudin Sausage, it is a first meal of the day cajun style. And to make it even better every Saturday is Zydeco Breakfast, where a local band comes in to play for brunch. In between Baton Rouge and Lafayette, worth the drive for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Closed on Mondays.
