Double-Header Zydeco Breakfast !

There's a great little cafe in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana that has the most wonderful Cajun breakfasts. I've been there many times and was there on a Saturday in August, when Joe Hall and the Canecutters were playing. Cafe' Des Amis is one of those quaint Cajun places where you can get a good breakfast and hear live music and dance, too. You'll find all of your favorite Cajun breakfast delights, such as couche-couche, grilled boudin patties, pain perdu, or beignets and of course, lots of strong Louisiana coffee. Or try Eggs Arnaud, eggs your way with grilled boudin patties, or homemade bisquits topped with crawfish etoufee. And maybe a Cajun Bloody Mary or an Abita beer or two.

After this fabulous breakfast, you are asked to move your chairs aside to make room for the dancers that didn't quite get enough dancing in on Friday night. Every Saturday morning from 8:30 to 11:30 am, the popular restaurant hosts a Zydeco band, that is guaranteed to get your Cajun or non Cajun blood pumping, for sure! Very aerobic and so much fun! Perfect for working off that rich, decadent breakfast. Believe me when I tell you that it is a blast! True to Cajun tradition, the cafe' caters to locals and visitors alike. Conveniently located off I-10 East, at 140 E. Bridge Street, in Breaux Bridge. For a complete schedule and menu, click here. Hope ya'll pass a good time. Let the good times roll, cher!

That would be most fu to have a breakfast and a work out all at the same time.

Not sure I'd go for the early morning music and dancing, bit too used to the British idea of a quiet newspaper and tea after a grilled kipper. However, I reviewed the menu at the Cafe; I now know where to go for lunch.

I have an author/screen writer friend that lives there, I'm going to ask him if he eats there! :)
Maybe I'll join him there!

Cloudia- Thought you would like this place. Very high energy atmosphere and excellent food, too.

Marlene- You need a high carb breakfast just to dance one song. Quite a fun work out!

John- It's a bit too early for me, too, but once in a while, I manage. The menu is fabulous!

Carol- If your friend lives in Breaux Bridge, you can bet that he does. Let me know if you do, and I'll join you, as well!
