Lafayette has finally earned a gem. This restaurant has the best selection of Southern food in Lafayette, LA. Bread & Circus has turned into an original, and there’s certainly no one in their way to the top. We eat there WEEKLY, and when we don’t, we’re thinking about eating there. It’s the restaurant your brain’s calling for when you’re thinking of a different but still familiar place to eat. The menu is creative in taking what you know and giving it an upgrade. It’s fantastic. The item I recommend that you try first: The John Jordan. If you’ve ever had a traditional Vietnamese po-boy (“banh mi”), you will love The John Jordan. It takes the best elements to “banh mi” like the crunchiness of the French baguette, the crispness of fresh pickled veggies, and the sweet butter and load it up with more deliciousness: PORK RIB. Sadly, it’s not pictured in my post, but please enjoy the view of their Juicy Lucy burger, the beef grillade & grits plate lunch, creamy veggie risotto, and Bread & Circus’s rustic interior.
