  • I'm so impressed by this large and historical building but also their inclusivity for everyone and their more spiritual offers like mindfulness classes, meditation, and even yoga at the Hines Center.....  more »
  • This is a very old building and church locally for this city and the windows are well worth looking at and seeing in more closer proximity  more »
  • There is a cafeteria there that is open at lunch. The Cajun food is why people show up there for lunch. I love the red beans & rice with sausage & their brownies for a great lunch. They also have great salads.
  • The best etouffe in town. All they cook is very good, and the desserts delicious especially the bread pudding. I go with coworkers during our lunch break. I recommend it.
