Granted I never ate out for breakfast much in Lafayette when I lived in Acadiana. Really don't eat out for breakfast now these days, so my experience is limited. Also, I'm not a huge breakfast meal guy. I'll eat leftover rice & gravy or pizza for breakfast all the time. Love me some grits when cooked right, but like them better with shrimp. Leftover fried trout...slap a filet or two into a folded over piece of Evangeline Maid bread and enjoy the best damn breakfast on earth! In fact, as I type this, I'm eating a bowl of crawfish mac & cheese that I cooked for dinner Monday night when we were without electricity and sub-30 degrees outside.
That said, here goes:
Underrated: Billy's Again, goes back to me not being some huge breakfast good person. Their sausage, egg and cheese biscuits are good, but a place where I can spend $6 on breakfast and be full on delicious crawfish pies? Sign me up.
Overrated: Dwyer's Cafe
Yeah...I'd rather visit this place for lunch.
Properly Rated: T-Coon's The best sausage, egg and cheese biscuit I've ever bought. Also, I'm not normally a fan of white gravy, but the white sausage gravy there is delightful.
I'll also add that while I ate at Broken Egg only once when living in Louisiana, and that was probably 10+ years ago for lunch. However, the wife and I have been to the one that opened a couple years ago in Sugar Land several times for mid/late morning. Tough to beat having one of those tasty bloody marys with crab cakes and fried green tomatoes at 10am on a Friday off.
