IT MOVED! Hate to give it a 2-star review, but when I went to the address listed on TA I was greatly disappointed. It was not there! So I missed out on some great Cajun food. It is now at 625 Euclid, which I now...More

Went looking for this cafe because of Trip Advisor. Very glad we did. The food was fresh, tasty and spicy. Friendly staff and reasonable prices.

Cafe Zydeco is a fun, reasonably priced place to get some cajun flavor in your diet. The food has always been good, although a bit on the spendy side, it's A LOT! Great place to take large parties.

I've been here at least once during each trip to Helena and it's a wonderful place for breakfast or lunch. I love their sausage po boy!

Just finished my meal. Not impressed. Ice machine out of order. Had to wait too long for food. Can't read menu because it's so small above the counter. Unfriendly staff. My oyster and shrimp basket had 3 Shrimp and 3 oysters. Both way overcooked -...More

We found this place on Tripadvisor and thought we'd stop in and check the place out. We enjoyed the All That Jazz Po-Boy and the Bayou Po-Boy. Both were made fresh, the rolls were delicious and food lived up to its heritage. We would definitely...More
