Buckhorn Cafe in Lottie on I-190 - show up at lunch on the early side like 11:15 - we're not kidding - folks eat fashionably early in Louisiana - you must get the plate lunch - the most authentic Louisiana food in the parish - and say "thank you" to the ladies on your way out
SNOWBALLS - give yourself a once-a-day treat (or twice-a-day if its hot) - visit B&N Tropical Snowballs on New Roads Street on the way to the ferry - all flavors are great - especially Tiger Blood - but remember they are only open after school.
Always, always, always take advantage of church festivals - the church ladies and gents serve great food. That goes the same for all festivals and sporting events - the Booster clubs serve jambalaya at football games. And don't forget the annual GUMBO COOKOFF during the Christmas in Morganza event. Mmm mmm good.
Keep a lookout for Uncle Bud cooking up his famous chicken barbecue - he can be anywhere because he is very popular.
The Ferry - go for a cruise - from downtown New Roads follow signs for ferry to St. Francisville - you will probably have to wait but hey that's cool - you got nothing better to do - once on board you can get out and walk around the boat - get off at St. Francisville - you got about 20 minutes to check out the town - then go back to the ferry and wait for the trip back - coming back costs a dollar.
Not My Mama's on LA1 in Morganza - again, show up fashionably early 11:15 for lunch, or 5:00 for dinner - anything with crawfish, catfish, poboys, shrimp - and folks just love the bread pudding.
Alma Sugar Plantation Store just off LA 416 in Lakeland - usually a sign in the road on LA416 when you get there - store doesn't have a sign - don't be scared just go on in - get yourself a big bag of the best cane sugar in the world - they also have a sack lunch.
Doris's Park - downtown New Roads on the corner of Main and New Roads Streets - a good place to "people watch" - you can get yourself a coffee from ESPRESSO ETC kitty corner and down.
Pointe Coupée Gallery - corner of Main and New Roads Streets - all kinds of items pertaining to the region.
Glaser's Vegetable Stand - False River Road - all kinds of homegrown fresh vegetables.
