What can I say – but that was the best $2 (with coupon) I have spent in a long time. We had a blast at the UCM Museum (5 miles North of I-12) in Abita Springs . The curator, John Preble couldn’t be nicer and more patient as the 6 kids poked around his gift store and touched everything for an hour! I won’t tell you too much more, but tell you that if you haven’t seen it – GO! Fun for all ages!!!

After about 2 hours in the museum – of course, everyone was STARVING . Dang kids always requiring food. We stopped in front of the Abita Brew Pub and saw the menu – not for these buggers and I would have to have at least one beer there….keep driving. Lot’s of “I’m so hungry I need to eat NOW.” OK – so we stopped at the Camellia Cafe’ (not far North off I-12) – first question – do they have a children’s menu – yep! Bingo! Everything on the kid’s menu was $5 and I didn’t let them order sodas – extra. I got a Caesar salad with grilled tuna for $10 – yummy! If you want authentic New Orleans atmosphere and don’t want to drive to the city – this is it! Art everywhere, tables, bathrooms (kids were amazed), walls, bar stools, music…what more could you want? Why did I have to face the bar – no I refrained! Renee’ our server was great and the kids all loved it!

  1. We really like Camelia Cafe too, but the pictures did not really show how bright and cheerful it is. It has a very pleasant atmosphere all around.

    I really love receiving these emails every day, and learning about my community without having had the time to get out there myself. You are wonderful!
