Our Story

Being in the restaurant industry for over 40 years, the owners of The Café – as it’s lovingly referred to by loyal patrons – continue to celebrate Southern Louisiana’s  people, hospitality, and the state’s famous culture devoted to delicious meals. This loving philosophy emphasizing food and people brought Café America into the forefront of Baton Rouge’s restaurant arena.

Cozy restaurant. Lunch menu is awesome and their cheesecakes are godly. Great tasting food and the portion sizes are just right.

Love Café Américain - it's a beautiful restaurant with great food. I almost always get the Double Café Américain Salad with blackened shrimp.

Stephanie Sander Amy

A cozy and relaxing bistro cafe. Service was excellent, and the staff was friendly and cordial.The cream of asparagus with lump crab meat is a superb must, and I can happily recommend their menu as first rate.

The food was first-rate as well as the service. Pleasant atmosphere and gracious hostess. Even the owner stops and asks how your day going - got to love that!
