Eat & Drink
See below for a list of cafes or tea salon.
Here in Louisiana, locals don't offer guests water or soda. We prefer something warm and full of caffeine, and so we say, "Would you like coffee or tea?" It's as if there's no other option because we know you can't go two steppin' to Cajun music without that little boost of energy.
What better way to experience the culture than through conversation over a cup coffee roasted right here in Acadiana? Find a good cup of joe almost anywhere in the parish, but for a taste of the locally roasted Rêve Coffee, you'll have to visit one of two local cafés. Take a step back in time at the old Parish & Trust Bank, and enjoy lunch in the vault at Java Square Café in Opelousas. Head farther west into Eunice and enjoy Café Mosaic's frozen yogurt and gourmet sandwiches in the former drug store. Want to enjoy Rêve at home? Both cafés offer several varieties and flavors, ground or whole bean. They make excellent gifts or even souvenirs!
