American kitchen is located in an 80 year old farmhouse that is now surrounded by downtown Lafayette. There are two separate dining rooms plus an outdoor seating area. Menu choices are plentiful including lamb chops, Chicken breast, pork ribs, meatloaf, and the catch of the day. There are about two dozen wines by the glass with some very nice selections. I recommend the Fidelity Merlot from the Alexander Valley. The ambiance is low-key and the staff are very friendly and the owner and the chef de Cuisine were also present and checking on everyone. Metered parking is available.

My wife and I stop here for lunch frequently on a nice day. The front patio offers a comfortable, shaded table for a casual lunch on a nice day.

The food is consistently good though nothing stands out on the menu. Parking plentiful both on the street and in the metered lot across the street. The only slight flaw is that the service is spotty - sometimes quite good and at other times, such as our most recent visit, very slow with intervention required to get refills of water or coffee.

Overall, a favorite stop for the location and the simple, well-prepared food.

Love this place for breakfast. The menu is great offering every possible concoction you would want for breakfast. I always have the breakfast burrito with spicy chorizo, eggs, and potatos.
I like the homey feeling sitting inside on cold mornings. It also has a large outdoor sitting area outside.
This place is owned by locals and we always have super friendly staff taking our orders. Have met and started great conversation with strangers because that's the kind of pleasant people who go there.
Would definitely recommend.

Visited with a friend of a friend while visiting from the UK. So glad we did, had a lovely evening, eating outside, friendly staff, and great food. Would gladly go back for more.

Sep. 25, we are seated outside at a casual wooden table, but comfortable. The service is provided by Aimee, friendly and professional. The meal is authentic and tasteful, four Cobb Salads and one Benedict. All well prepared and well served. To try again when in the surroundings.
