Party on the Patio

Good news is always around the corner in Southwest Louisiana. Especially for our restaurants. Let’s continue to support our local businesses by partying on the patios! Here is a short list of local restaurants offering patio seating:

Mellow Mushroom is for all the pizza lovers craving the ultimate cheesy pepperoni pizza and more. Their colorful patio area includes an outdoor stage for live acoustic acts by local musicians. A retro-fitted Airstream is fun to sit in, and the giant transformer amuses kids of all ages. 

Burgers, fries, and ice-cream! Oh my! Enjoy dining al fresco at Maplewood Burgers. They offer a large variety of burger and sandwich combos served with the classic ice-cream and milkshakes. Kids might enjoy the "Mac & Cheese Combo.” 

Crying Eagle Brewing boasts a large patio known as "The Beer Garden.” Eat, relax, listen to live music, and play cornhole while sipping your favorite beverage. They recently updated their menu with a tasty looking nacho combo. Bring along a friend or two and experience the latest new Crying Eagle beverages.

Southern Spice is known for their classic home-cooked meals like red beans & sausage, potatoes, rice, cornbread, mustard greens, fried fish and more. Instead of making a mess in the kitchen at home, consider dining outside at Southern Spice where the food will feel like home.

Breakfast (and lunch and afternoon snack) is served at The Bekery. You’ll find sandwiches, quiche, and tempting sweets. Their garden patio is like a little oasis in the heart of the city. It’s the perfect place to catch up with a friend over a cup of coffee.

Rikenjaks offers a large outdoor dining area with shaded umbrellas, an outdoor bar, live music, and plenty of patio games to keep you entertained while you wait for your meal. Try their ribs or cheesy jalapeno fries.

As we continue to practice social distancing and wear our masks as appropriate, we can still find ways to support our local restaurants. Indoor dining may be limited, but we can eat outside, order to go, for delivery, or curbside pick-up. More than ever, they need us!
