Taste of Louisiana (TOLA) Cafe
Taste of Louisiana (TOLA) Cafe is a work of love. Just ask husband-and-wife team founders Cary and Amber Dugas. They wanted to share their Louisiana home cooking with the community, so they set up shop in a Denham Springs flea market and instantly won over their neighbors with their crawfish etouffee and shrimp po'boys. When the flea market went out of business, the restaurant continued to thrive; soon, the Cafe moved into a brick-and-mortar location of their very own, and its dozen tables haven't been empty since.
The restaurant's appeal lies in its hearty homemade entrees, such as the hand-battered fried catfish, crab cakes, and chicken and sausage gumbo. Cary oversees work in the kitchen. He brings in local ingredients every morning, from french bread baked at Wayne's Bakery to catfish raised on Louisiana farms, to ensure that each meal is a fresh and flavorful as possible.
