My wife and I had breakfast and lunch here on 11/7/2005. Both meals were excellent. The meat pie (our first) was as described. The eggs and grits were cooked exactly as I like them. The coffee was Community.
Lunch was equally great. We ordered from the daily lunch menu, which is set up like a "meat and three" menu. It was very, very good. We didn't try dessert as we were stuffed from our previous two meals. Although the Roadfood.com review is five years old it is still valid.
"Even though a cup of gravy comes with your meat pie, the pork/beef mixture is moist enough that the gravy is unnecessary. That is dirty rice on the side."
"Named after the local Cane River, this dessert alone is worth a detour to Natchitoches."
"Lasyone's has been a Roadfood standard-bearer since long before the original edition of our book was published. This photo, featuring a papier-mache meat pie hanging in the window, was taken when we first drove through Louisiana in the early 1970s."
"Natchitoches is famous for their annual Festival of Lights. Lasyone's also decorates for the season."
"The streets of Natchitoches are rich with history. Lasyone's is a vintage eatery that fits right in."
