It is also known for its unusual listing of nicknames in its telephone directory.
You cross the Bayou Teche to enter into the old town, where you will find the Famous Cafe des Amis Cajun Restaurant and some very cute and unique shops. There is also another famous restaurant there, Mulates Cajun Restaurant, which also has a large dance floor, but I can’t remember when they have a band and dancing. Cajun people love to dance and have a good time.
On our way to St. Francisville, Roy and I stopped to have lunch at des Amis. On Saturday morning starting about 7:00-8:00 they have Zydeco music and dancing until lunch time. The place was wild when we arrived with music and dancing and laughter and good times.
CAFE dES AMIS ON THE MAIN STREET JUST AS YOU CROSS THE BRIDGE.
These are the sights that greeted us as we waited for a table to eat lunch. I wish you could hear the music and laughter.
Zydeco music started with the rural black Creole, but now as you can see is joined by all.
After lunch, I had crawfish etoffee and Roy has barbecue shrimp, we took a walk thru the little town and shopped in the stores.
Here is a new one, where Roy found a treasure…..
Last but the best…Roy and his treasure.
The coke cooler is in great condition and has a tray inside which they say makes it more valuable. Some of you experts will have to tell us about that. Roy just likes old Coke things.
We found some more treasures and then continued our trip on this rainy Saturday to St. Francisville.
