Approriately on a bayou in Pinellas Park, Cajun Cafe has always delivered for my friends and I. I was reminded of this fact when a large group of us went there on a recent saturday night.

The crawfish cornbread is a luxurious delight, moist and savory. On this occassion, however, both orders arrived lukewarm in places, like it should have stayed in the mic (or oven) longer. The gator bites were good, too, with a great tomato-based dipping sauce.

My smoked pork roast was great, with a heavy smoke flavor and stuffed with andouille sausage. My companions had crawfish boudin (very fishy), BBQ shrimp (ahh-- yummy), shrimp etoufee (mild and comforting) and some sort of gator chunks in sauce (nice). Service was better than ever-- it usually was pretty lousy but the food made it worth it. Bottled Blackened Voodoo took me back to Mardi Gras.....

        A bunch of us Chez Funk alumni met there a couple of weeks ago. They were 11 for 12, with just one person complaining of too much heat. The cornbread is still the greatest, and our service was good. If you're a beer lover, you may never want to leave. I think they have 70 or so choices. There is something in the breading that turns on the heat just right. I had the oyster dinner, and got plenty of them. Not bad at all.

          I agree, and have to add that the oyster 'Po Boy and Bread Pudding are might tasty, too!
