I ended up here because the Zydeco Brunch at Buck and Johnny's was way too loud for me. Had the Grand Slam - great biscuit, sunny eggs and grits. And the bacon was awesome. Friendly service.

Great atmosphere and fun music. The service was slow but it fit with the atmosphere, very laid back. The Bloody Mary was just right and the egg, muffin, cheese and boudin sandwich was very tasty. A fun casual family place where children dance to the music. I would certainly go back.

We were in Lafayette for my sons soccer tournament so I looked up where to get a great cup of coffee and this little gem popped up. What a great find. The owner was working the counter. She was super helpful and very nice. The coffee was excellent and the breakfast sandwiches were homemade and very good. We will hopefully get back there soon.

We stopped in during late afternoon for coffee, tea, salad and a sandwich to share. The friendly atmosphere in this old cajun town carries into this coffee house. We wish we could have returned for one of the scheduled music performances.

We came across cafe Joie de Vivre by chance since we were in area and popped in for a coffee. It was a Saturday morning and a local jam was happening with over 20 musicians. The music was Cajun and Zydeco . There was dancing to it as well. We went back for dinner in evening. 2 musicians playing and although quieter it was good.Food was good too
Enjoyable day
