Breaux Bridge is a few miles east of Lafayette. It is a picturesque small town on the banks of Bayou Teche in the heart of Cajun Country that proclaims itself as the “Crawfish Capital of the World”. For our short visit here we parked at Poche’s RV Park and Fish-N-Camp. It’s a lovely setting with the RV sites arranged among the fish ponds.
We couldn’t let this opportunity pass without sampling some local Cajun food. We were directed to a local restaurant named Pont Breaux. We had their seafood gumbo, Pont Breaux catfish and a side of hushpuppies. The catfish was grilled and topped with shrimp étouffée. It was exceptionally good.
