T-Coon's Restaurant - Lafayette, LA

The picture above may look like it was taken in the middle of the night but in fact it was taken at about 5:00 in the morning. In other words, O'dark:30! When you find yourself wide awake on a weekend morning and looking for breakfast T-Coon's Restaurant in Lafayette is a fine place to land.

The tables are set with huge coffeepots, plenty of cups, cream and sugar; however you take your morning brew, they're ready for you.

How wonderful not to have to wait for that first cup of the morning. Sit down, grab a mug and you're all set. While I sipped my coffee we looked over the menu. T-Coon's has a big breakfast menu. A couple different breakfast plates, at least a dozen different omelets, biscuits, bagels, pancakes and more.

The Dining Companion and I decided on omelets. They were stuffed to the gills and served with potatoes, biscuits and grits.

T-Coon's is the kind of place where people know each other. Almost every time the door opened, the newcomer was greeted by the folks already there. Groups of older gentlemen, seated in threes and fours at various tables, drinking coffee and solving the worlds problems. A fantastic, albeit very early start to our day.

T-Coon's is one of those places, if you like a good diner with local influence, that you just have to visit. So, when you're planning that trip to Southern Louisiana (and you are right?) plan to stop here for breakfast at O'Dark:30. They'll have the coffee on for you.

Happy dining!
