About

This restaurant is permanently closed. SSI is focused on keeping cooking local. Seafood from the Gulf, produce from Acadiana’s farms and innovative cooking set the table for an inspired menu. Nestled in the heart of one of Lafayette’s oldest neighborhoods, The Saint Street Inn also plays host to a variety of community events, from benefits and fundraisers to live music events and cookoffs. Both the kitchen and bar stay open late and there’s always a spot on the big front porch to sip a local brew and watch the sun go down.

Two of us ordered juice to go with our brunch and the juice was warm. We asked for ice but had to go to the bar and get it ourselves. All of our meals were only lukewarm and had no flavor. Two of us had the vegan omelet and the other had two eggs which were supposed to be over easy but were totally hard and cold. The grits were also cold. Nothing had any taste, even the sweet tea was not good. The service was also very slow. We will never return.

Eclectic atmosphere, kinda hipster in a fun way. Not a cozy, romantic atmosphere, but fun energy and fantastic food. We ordered the charcuterie board and it was over-stuffed and 100% delicious- every piece. Definitely recommend it!

We've been here many times, but never for brunch. It was perfect. I think everyone, including our pickiest eaters and our dog, enjoyed their meals. My chik'n and waffles was amazing, while my husband really enjoyed his burrito, especially since they were so kind to make it vegetarian for him. Drinks were refreshing and tasty and our server was helpful and attentive (like always, but she was really great this time).

Thank you for the great experience!

Always a delight. It's fun to people watch because the coolest people in town seem to be regulars, and everyone seems to be genuine friends. More importantly, the food and drinks are fantastic. Having a vegan menu in Lafayette is a rare feat, and that alone is a recommendation.

My pain Perdue (French toast) was a soggy mush with 6 blueberries on top. Ate less than half. My husband’s Buddha bowl had scimpy portions of quinoa and chickpeas. Service was slow but polite.

The service and the food could not have been better! When we sat down to our outside reservation it was a literally monsoon outside and the wait staff was able to fit us inside for dinner despite other reservations pending. It ended up being a fabulous experience!

The food was exceptional. The Scotch Egg was cooked perfectly and the Fried Oyster Mushroom was exceptional. The Pesto sauce on the pasta was as rich as an Alfredo. Wonderful food.

All went well until it was time to pay. We used two cards in order to wipe out balance on one and then complete interaction with the other. The first card was not depleted....leaving a larger balance on the second card. Not sure what happened....and according to the math, we were charged a few dollars more. Oh well.

I had reserved a table inside as it was a pretty warm day. We were told the inside was already filled up when we arrived 10 minutes early. The hostess blamed opentable. 20 min later another party of 4 experienced the same situation as we had. No idea if they used opentable as well.

The food was fresh and pretty good. The cocktails were outstanding. An overall ho-hum experience.

HI Todd, thank you for your feedback. OpenTable allows diners to select seating preferences, though we don't make guarantees for online reservations. During peak times, the seating chart is always in flux so please let the host know your preference and we'll do our best to get you seated in a comfortable place. (the inside bar is also full service). If you have a definitive seating request, please call ahead and we can let you know exactly what's available. Thank you, hope to see you again soon

Easter Sunday brunch. Viewed menu before going and was very excited to dine there. Unfortunately, by the time of our reservation, they ran out of several items and dishes on the menu...very disappointing. The food we did order from what was left was very good, but many of the items we were looking forward to were unavailable.

I'm from New Orleans and we were visiting family in the area. We chose The Saint Street Inn to meet so that we could include Erika in our gathering. The food was so delicious. We started off with the bacon and brussel sprouts. They were delicious. My son and I shared the basil salad and the hamburger. my son said that he had never had a burger that good in his life. We ended with the bread pudding with whipped cream and strawberries. You tasted the farm to table love in every ingredient. I would go out of my way to eat here again.

We live this hidden gem so much we returned to celebrate our anniversary. The appetizers and drinks were great. The Old fashion was out of this world. The flank steak was tasty but a little chewy. The fresh fish was outstanding. Love the cozy feel of the place. Definitely will be back for more!
