Big portions, standard cafe, appreciate the upgrade to the decor and the food is middle of the road. Nothing horrible, nothing outstanding. I am sure if I was a college student I would frequent, their late night eats would be great.

Good food all the time. Variety of favorites from burgers to chili to breakfast. Cheap prices and great staff. A favorite LSU hangout for students. No bar or alcohol is available. Portion sizes tend to be large.

Without doubt the best omelets in Baton Rouge. Good service, everything is made fresh to order. When you've finished your meal take a ride around LSU.

The best breakfast ever. Consistently great. The hash browns are to die for, homemade, slightly seasoned with scallions. Eggs cooked to perfection. You will not be disappointed.

Great food! They serve huge portions! The omelettes are the best! Looks like a lot of the people were ordering their potatoe dishes served in many different ways! I would highly recommend the cafe!

We tried to go for breakfast on a busy game day but the line was ridiculously long. So we tried again this past weekend and only waited 5 minutes for a seat. The restaurant is very small and we sat at the counter. All three...More
