For less formal dining, head to Poche's Market Restaurant & Smokehouse (3015 Main Hwy. No. A -- call tel. 800/3-POCHES [376-2437] or 337/332-2108 for directions!) for excellent spicy boudin, cracklins (fresher earlier in the day), weekend barbecue plates, and other regional meaty delicacies. They also ship, in case you want to cook like a Cajun at home. Open Monday through Saturday 5am to 8pm, Sunday 5am to 6pm.

There's also an outpost of Baby's Coffee, the Key West cult coffee roaster, in Breaux Bridge, offering a small selection of pastries and cookies. Look for the Quonset hut at 282 Rees St. (tel. 337/442-6359). Open Monday through Friday 8am to 5pm.
