Late Night Dining in Lafayette, LA?

I'll be arriving in Lafayette after 9pm on Thursday and was looking for recommendations for places whose kitchens stay open until at least 11pm during the week.
 
Thanks!

    I would suggest the Blue Dog Cafe in Lafayette.  It has been there for many years and I have visited it several times.  I totally enjoyed it and it is easy to find.  I consulted with a company in Lafayette for nearly five years and this was always handy.
     
    For Breakfast, I would suggest T Coons. Super Cajun breakfast.

    Thanks for the suggestions, Paul. Unfortunately, the Blue Dog Cafe's website states that they close at 9pm, so they'll be closed by the time I arrive that night.
     
    I'm just trying to avoid the tragic scenerio of being in a really great food town and forced to go to a Waffle House because of no other known late-night options.

    Looks like Mels Diner, 2956 Johnson St( 337-235-6219)is open 24 hours a day. A friend of mine ate there awhile ago and said the food was good and a fun atmosphere.

    Great - I'll shoot for Old Tyme Grocery and have Mel's as a backup plan if running late. Thanks!

    I was sure Prejean's had to be a place that stayed open late, but they close at 9:30, too.

    Gator Cove would be my recommendation in Lafayette.

    Gator Cove closes at 10pm.All great recommendations, my friends, but if  arriving after 9pm, I understand why the request is for at least 11pm.

    I live here in Lafayette and sorry to say a lot of the places close pretty early. Your best bet might be around the Johnston Street/Ammbassador Cafferty PKWY intersection, there are the usual chains in that area and most would probably still be open. Also there is a good burger place right on Johnston near that intersection called Burgersmiths, they have house brews and seem to be pretty popular with the locals. If you get the chance do go to Olde Thyme for a PoBoy (preferably a shrimp) or strange as it may seem a local grocery called Rouses has a hot food area that has some great items, but you would need to have transportation to it as it is out in the country.How long will your stay be?

    Thanks for everyone's suggestions and tips. I arrived in Lafayette last Thursday on schedule at a little after 9pm so I was able to make it to Gator Cove before they closed. I had some of the best boiled crawfish I've ever had, so thanks to Davydd for the great recommendation. I went to Old Tyme Grocery the following day but they were closed as it was New Year's Eve.
     
    I did hit Mel's on Johnston late Sunday night and liked the friendly atmosphere, but unfortunately I ordered the roast beef po' boy which wasn't very good - the bread was all wrong and there was just one tiny sliver of beef. Next time, I'll probably stick with breakfast items and save the po' boys for Old Tyme Grocery.
     
    All in all, I absolutely loved Lafayette.  The food and live music scene is really hard to beat.

    Thanks for the trip report, I think Lafayette is one of the most under-rated places in the country.
