Restaurants in Lafayette, LA

Lafayette is the de facto capital of Cajun Louisiana. It is the place to savor boudin sausage in all its glory — at butcher shops, groceries, roadside stands, gas stations, and even some restaurants. Sit down Cajun meals that go beyond sausage are casual but brilliant at T-Coon’s (rabbit, beignets, crawfish) and more fancy fare at the long-established Prejean’s, which is a big, boisterous eating hall that serves crawfish in every imaginable configuration and three kinds of gumbo. Not-necessarily Cajun fare includes world-class hamburgers at Judice Inn, breakfast biscuits at Edie’s Express next to a gas station, sweet potato pancakes at Dwyer’s Cafe, and famous “pink cookies” at Champagne’s bakery down in Breaux Bridge.
