This restaurant came highly recommended from someone in the neighborhood. The atmosphere had a good feel, and the service was fine, but the breakfast was very disappointing. I ordered the "farmer's breakfast" which is scrambled eggs with a giant hashbrown and cheddar cheese on top. I was suprised by the quantity--mainly the size of the hashbrown--but I had keep mining the potatoes for where to find the scrambled eggs. When I got to them, it looked more like one egg than two. And although the hashbrown was enormous, it was so greasy that I could barely eat it. The prices here were way too high for the what I ended up getting ($8.95 for that??!!). The coffee was and the atmosphere were the main highpoints, the service was average, and the food was disappointing. I'd be willing to give it one more try, but I wasn't too impressed.
Poor treatment – The food and service are usually very good at the Louisiana Cafe, however today a member of the wait staff copped an attitude and instead of politely asking people waiting to be seated to move back from the hosting station, he chose to yell not once but twice at us. After having already waited for 20 minutes to be seated we decided to go to another restaurant. Upon returning home we called the manager to lodge a complaint and he just didn't get it. This whole treatment has now changed our perception of the Louisiana Cafe and we will not return there despite having been patrons for 15 years as they were a valued part of our neighberhood. Louisiana Cafe there is a lot of competition out there and no matter how arrogant you are you can always lose business.
Experience – I have gone there several times with a group. The service is always excellent and prompt. The food is always good and a lot for your money. All around a good place to eat.
Best place in the City – It is the best place to eat breakfast when you are in a rush
