Cooks at The Café boast that theirs is the best Southern Fried Fish and Seafood Etouffee in Baton Rouge. If the eatery's flock of regulars is any indication, locals test this assertion with zeal—over and over again. House seasonings and sauce in the signature etouffee smother smoked chicken, smoked sausage, shrimp, and crab, while the southern fried fish envelopes a whole, fresh fillet in a crispy halo of batter. For other authentic, down-home flavors, eaters chow down on gumbo and jambalaya, southern-fried chicken, and sides like mustard greens, candied yams, and sweet corn. The menu also consists of entrees and sides including super marinated southern fried chicken, signature seafood etouffee loaded with shrimp and crab meat, baked chicken, southern fried fish fillets, mustard greens, candied yam, homemade potato salad, jambalaya, homemade pecan candy and More..The Café is perhaps best known for their $5.95 Sunday dinner as well.
