Totally unique atmosphere. It feels like an eclectic antique shop. Food menu is varied and prepared when ordered. (Don't be in a rush when you go in) Caj8un and Creole cooking makes you feel like you're on the bayou..

Chef/Owner Brad Sullivan, a New Orleans native delivers a menu that covers his tradition training of Cajun/Creole to the more refined French cuisine that he learned at L'Orangerie in Los Angeles! Fresh food served by a loving family in a very unusual, eclectic dining room! We are now in our 9th year of serving "Truly Great Food!"
