“Unexpected Source of Great Gumbo”
Review of Cream & Sugar Cafe - CLOSED

Reviewed 20 January 2018 via mobile

I noticed that in the last Nappie Awards (annual reader votes on best of almost everything of note that run by Lagniappe newspaper “Something Extra for Mobile”) my favorite light lunch + coffeehouse place was selected as having the best gumbo in Mobile. It was a dish that I had never ordered there, although my wife and I frequently ate at Cream and Sugar. So we went for the Gumbo and loved it. Rich and with lots of “meat” and nicely light on liquid. Excellent seasoning with a moderate amount of salt. We really had been missing something but will compensate by making it our gotta have menu item.
Cream and Sugar is in one of the beautiful historic districts just off Government Street, adjacent to the equally excellent and upscale Kitchen on George.

Great little coffee shop and cafe. The food is delicious, I’ve gotten an avocado toast sandwich and the breakfast bowl. The prices were very reasonable and they tasted great. Very friendly staff and the coffee drinks are also delicious. They also have a nice little shaded courtyard to enjoy the weather (when it’s cooler out).

Set back in the beautiful historic neighborhood of Oakleigh, Cream and Sugar is a quaintly old-fashioned popular local gathering place for gourmet bakery goods, coffee and lunch. It's perfect.

Quaint old house & outside ambiance seating; coffee is fine & fun to taste Cake Pops sampler, Key Lime was a good taste variation.
