The many flavors of Lake Charles

Jambalaya, gumbo, spicy crawfish, boudin and bread pudding, these are just a few things you can sample of Southwest Louisiana's famous Cajun French and Creole cuisine. Cajuns in Southwest Louisiana like to tap their toes to good music while dining, and several restaurants in the Southwest Louisiana area feature live Cajun tunes almost every night of the week.

In Lake Charles for the weekend? Then let's do brunch! Check out our great restaurants that can offer that not quite breakfast not quite lunch menu and possibly accompany it with a nice brunch cocktail.
