Enjoy genteel service at Burnside Café, a huge dining hall of old brick and old windows with huge fireplaces adorning each end.You must try the Bisque of Curried Pumpkin, Crawfish and Corn.In fact, it was so good, I made this the next day at home.

The menu is filled with Chef Jeremy Langlois’ imaginative Nouvelle Louisiana.My Jumbo-Lump Crab and Mango Cake Salad and Kaye’s Lunch Special, Soft Shell Crab on Top of Shrimp Penne Alfredo, were award worthy.The dishes are enhanced with fresh Louisiana ingredients, including vegetables and herbs from the picturesque garden growing right outside the café.I just had to have a mint julep (my favorite drink) and enjoyed it while strolling through the gardens.Made with fresh mint from the garden and smooth Southern bourbon, I believe it’s the best I’ve ever had!

Latil House, the original home constructed at Houmas House, is the setting for the award-winning restaurant, Latil’s Landing. You’ll feel like a guest in the grand house in its antebellum heyday as Chef Jeremy Langlois serves a fabulous 7-course meal.

What Cajun Daughters love about Burnside Cafe at Houmas House: The food is superb as is the service!
