Bon Temps Creole Cafe Restaurant Review

: No, there’s nothing fancy here, and purists will quibble with the details, but Bon Temps Creole Café is still the place to go if you want to get a hit of Mardi Gras in “San Luis-iana.” You will find dishes such as pain perdu, eggs Sardou, and even alligator etouffée on the menu, but we like the fried green tomato Benedict for breakfast, the muffalettas or po’boys for lunch, and the shrimp and andouille jambalaya for dinner. Enjoy a bottle of Abita beer or one of several wines by the glass, and be sure to save room for desserts, such as rich bread pudding or sweet potato pie.
