A highly-rated restaurant in Lafayette, The Squirrels Coffee Shop offers a casual ambience with a fresh menu that features coffee. It's a popular restaurant for visitors seeking good food.
There's not really a recommended attire, so feel free to dress comfortably. Also, in addition to its low prices, this won't exactly be the place to earn credit card points (it's cash-only). In fact, you should be able to enjoy a good meal for $11 or $12, and can probably get in and out for $8 if you try.
There really is something for everyone, with gluten-free options, as well as low-fat and vegetarian items on the robust menu. Plus, if you're searching for the perfect spot for a family gathering, it's been reviewed as a great local option for big groups and families with kids. If you're in a hurry, you can always take advantage of the convenient take-out offerings.
A breakfast staple in Downtown Lafayette for nearly three decades, The Squirrels definitely stands out from the rest. Visitors to the restaurant have access to a private lot nearby or can park on the street.
