buffetbuster Wanted to expand this a little.... Looks like I may also be spending time in Monroe and Alexandria, LA, so if anyone has suggestions, I would love to see them. Thanks!
crew84rowIn Alexandria, there's The Cottage. Local lunch place. Been around for a long time. Good creamed soups. Limited pie selection though. I've heard Restaurant Cotton in Monroe has a draft beer list of southern crafts beers, but I've never been there, so can't opine on the food. For good coffee try the Corner Coffeehouse in West Monroe, on Blanchard off Thomas Road. They have a shop next door that sells cupcakes, that Southern specialty--cookie cake--and some interesting daily sammie specials.
