Right next door to where we stayed at the cottages. This is a quaint array of renovated buildings full of quirky shops. Antiques and souvenirs, plus a couple of live gators! Not kitschy but very well renovated. Breakfast at the café is very generous, and the main village shop must sell everything in the souvenir department known to man! Giant... More

Great Beignets and plenty of stores to browse through. Next time I plan to try the gumbo. Oh, and don't forget to visit the friendly alligators.

We rarely miss a chance on the road to or from New Orleans to stop at Cajun Village. It has interesting and fun shopping, as well as a delicious restaurant called the Coffee House that has a full menu of Cajun dishes. It makes for a great food or rest stop, and is worth driving a quarter mile off I-10!

There were 4 of us ladies (3 who are locals) who visited The Cajun Village. If you have an hour or so to roam around quaint shops full of lots and lots of things (particularly Louisiana themed of course) then this is a nice outing. But if your intent is to learn about and enjoy the Cajun culture and eat... More

The Cajun village has some neat little shops with down-home local flare that are worth a stop in if you're in the area. While you're there, stop at the Coffee Pot for a bite to eat anytime of day. Grab some beignets and coffee, or have you some Gumbo or Red Beans and rice - it's all pretty good from... More

Was in the area staying at the cottages associated with this place. Lots of neat shops covering every type of cajun clothing, entertaiinment, spices, candy, etc. you could think of. Antiques, pottery classes and showroom, estate sales items and much more. All the people here were very nice and exhibited the southern hospitality you should expect from the area. Highly... More

From Houmas Plantation, we rushed there right before it closed (6pm) to get some cafe au lait et beignets and they were absolutely delicious, far better than those from Cafe du Monde. Can't tell about the other shops though.

You can stop in for breakfast as we did today with our 3 grands. They love the bengiets. I'm bringing my Red Hatters the Lafourche Dizzy Lizzies there in Sept. for our Dilly Dally to have lunch & shop.
