HOUMA, LOUISIANA

Houma Restaurant | Jolly Inn Cajun Café
BY: Susan Arcement

Just down the road from the military museum, you’ll find real Cajun-style cooking at the Jolly Inn Cajun Café. The menu, written in English and Cajun French, consists of the poboys and seafood platters that you’ll find at the typical Cajun restaurant.

We were served our delicious poboys by friendly and accommodating staff in the large dining area decorated with old fishing memorabilia and photographs of local interest. The wooden dance floor and bandstand suggests that food isn’t the only thing served at the Jolly Inn. On Friday nights and Sunday afternoons you can kick up your heels to live Cajun-Zydeco music!

The café gets its authenticity from Cajun owner, Werlien Prosperie, who was born on a houseboat in Montegut on the same Bayou Terrebonne that winds through the heart of Houma on its way to the gulf. He and his 5-piece band, Couche Couche, are among the Cajun musicians that provide music for the lively Cajun dances.

For authentic Cajun music and food, the Jolly Inn Cajun Café is the place to be.

What Cajun Daughters Love about the Jolly Inn:  It’s a true Cajun experience!
