6 of Louisiana’s Best Brunch Spots


With simple yet stunning food, festive cocktail flights, and live music on the porch every Sunday, brunch at The Saint Street Inn is an event. The farm-to-table restaurant in Lafayette serves brunch on Saturdays and Sundays, but Sundays are especially fun with the addition of local artists performing Cajun, folk, jazz, and more.

“We can set people up on our porch and have something really simple and intimate, and I think people really like that,” says owner Nathan Stubbs. “Brunch is a great time for that kind of laid-back atmosphere and to come together over some nice food and have a good time.”

On Saint Street Inn’s brunch menu, Chef Jackson Nevitt makes familiar foods shine with fresh, local ingredients. Customer favorites include the Scotch Egg with house-made chaurice sausage, Shrimp & Grits, the Local Farm Egg Sandwich, and Fried Chicken & Smoked Oats, as well as standards like the Classic Breakfast with eggs, bacon or sausage, and buttermilk biscuits.

Saint Street Inn also offers flights of brunch cocktails, including Bloody Marys and mimosas. Each flight is served on a board with 5-ounce glasses filled with variations of whatever cocktail is being served that day. Bloody Mary flights have come with a variety of infused vodkas, like bacon, horseradish, and basil. When local citrus is in season, mimosa flights showcase grapefruit, oranges, and tangerines.

Expect to see seasonal updates to menu items like the waffle and salads, which are refreshed with local produce as it becomes available.
