It is a variety of Americana that can only be found in southern Louisiana. Combining the two arts of zydeco and breakfast was a brilliant move. Café Des Amis in Breaux Bridge plays host to this experience every Saturday morning where they host zydeco bands and serve breakfast for a mulitcultural audience of dancers and music fans. Patrons line up outside to enter an alternate world, celebrating great food and liberating dance music.

Zydeco Enterprises and director Tom Uhl have teamed up to document the zydeco breakfast celebration phenomenon in a new film entitled Zydeco Breakfast. The film, which is still in production, features music by Geno Delafose, Cedric Watson, Joe Hall, Wayne Singleton and many others.

 The trailer for the film can be viewed at
