We’ve all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and with all the options we have at our local eateries it can be the tastiest too! Whether you’re looking for healthy fare or a Cajun/ Creole spin on the traditional breakfast, Southwest Louisiana has got you covered.


If you haven’t tried The Bekery yet, you need to get there fast! Not only is the atmosphere adorable, but their baked goods are made fresh daily and are amazing. You can even enjoy your breakfast outside on the patio, which is always a nice touch.

If you’re looking for a breakfast that screams Southwest Louisiana, I highly recommend Favorites Southern Kitchen inside L’Auberge Casino Resort. Several of the menu offerings use fresh local seafood and offer a unique twist on your favorite breakfast dishes. You honestly can’t go wrong with whatever you choose, but the Cajun Benedict and Chicken and waffles are to die for!

Of course, everyone knows Cotton’s Downtown is famous for their burgers, but their breakfast is equally as impressive. This cozy little diner serves up some mean pancakes and other great choices, but the fan-favorite is the donut burger. Yes……you read that correctly. 😊

For more traditional breakfast cuisine with an inviting atmosphere, check out Big Daddy’s Sports Grill. I’m partial to the biscuits and gravy since they remind me of my grandma’s, but all items are fantastic and the southern hospitality you receive is top-notch!
