Looking for weekend breakfast? Don't stand in line at those chain places - hop over to Louie's! Portions are large (don't over-order) and tasty. Service is fast but not rushed. A great find.

A great 24 hour diner. Was not too far off the highway on a road trip back to Texas. Hash browns with cheese and whatever else you want on them are the winners on their mebu.

Big portions, standard cafe, appreciate the upgrade to the decor and the food is middle of the road. Nothing horrible, nothing outstanding. I am sure if I was a college student I would frequent, their late night eats would be great.

Good food all the time. Variety of favorites from burgers to chili to breakfast. Cheap prices and great staff. A favorite LSU hangout for students. No bar or alcohol is available. Portion sizes tend to be large.

Without doubt the best omelets in Baton Rouge. Good service, everything is made fresh to order. When you've finished your meal take a ride around LSU.

The best breakfast ever. Consistently great. The hash browns are to die for, homemade, slightly seasoned with scallions. Eggs cooked to perfection. You will not be disappointed.

We stopped on for breakfast at this cute diner. The food was good, but not exceptional. You can substitute your toast for a waffle which is nice.
