I've eaten here several times with friends. The artistic funky atmosphere is welcoming and the service is friendly. Soups, salads, and sandwiches are the ticket along with homemade gelato.

Loved the sandwich! Had a cup of three sisters soup! Had the home made sweet potato chips. Would recommend this to all. A trained chef owns and cooks at this place.

I love this little local fare. Everything is so good. Try the red beans and rice, or the rosemary chicken sandwich... I haven't had anything here that I didn't enjoy and would have licked the plate... if I could. Try it out, you won't regret it

Amazing beignets! Great service and good food. The decor of the building and location make it a place I will come to over and over again.

My husband and I stopped to have lunch at this restaurant and were pleasantly surprised. The decor is cozy and you immediately feel at home. The staff is friendly and efficient and the food is really good! We ate muffalettas, beans and rice, and we will definitely be back!

I love this low-key place for brunch/lunch. The french toast breakfast roll with pecans is delicious. I always order the pork sandwich for lunch. The pork is flavored well, the herb mayo is delicious and the bread is soft and fresh.

Cafe Bienville has a relaxed atmosphere, a clever front for an amazing array of near professional level foods. The beignets are amazing!! The sandwiches are well made, and all dishes are European in style and flavor, which I assume is actually New Orleans style in disguise. It is truly an amazing place, the coffee is always good, and there is... More

Love the gumbo and muffuletta. Pork sandwich is also great. Sweet potato fries were not hot if that's what you're used to getting. Wish it were located on the bay though.

Wow! We stopped here for breakfast with three kids! They have toys and did not mind the kids doing a "survey: of the place! Very casual atmosphere and the breakfast: The beignet plates are HUGE - so fresh and delicious! We also had a huge cinnamon type of bun! Thanks you for a memorable morning!
