Discover Lafayette

Located in the heart of south Louisiana's Acadiana country, Lafayette is the city where Cajun and Creole cuisine originated. Whether it's seafood or freshwater fish, in Lafayette, you can have it baked, boiled, braised, blackened, or fried and seasoned to taste. Locally owned restaurants even serve alligator on their menus, and crawfish is a springtime favorite. Area chefs use fresh local ingredients in all their dishes whether it's a cheeseburger or po'boy. American restaurants serve traditional home-style dishes called plate lunches. Featuring hearty portions and a thick gravy, plate lunches are popular because they are inexpensive and quick. Cafes and bistros serve soups and sandwiches. You can also find French cuisine, Asian-style restaurants, and Mexican food in Lafayette.
