The Lost Cajun
TripAdvisor Rating: 4.5
Address: 411 South Main Street, Breckenridge
The Lost Cajun focuses on Southern atmosphere and authentic Cajun food, making it a nice contrast to the mountain air and chill. The food is warm and flavorful. The Lost Cajun slow cooks all of their gumbos, bisques, and etouffees, making them both filling and delicious. The atmosphere is casual and familiar, with hospitality being a focus—something that visitors familiar with Southern culture will know well.
It’s also a great place to take the kids for lunch or dinner. For families who have never been to Louisiana, there’s a bit of a cultural lesson in store as the menus talk about the history and culture of the Cajuns, including a pronunciation guide. If you’re unsure what you might like, the Lost Cajun offers samplers of favorite dishes when you sit down, so you can pick a favorite before you order. For dessert, be sure to order a plate of their beignets.
What They’re Known for: The Lost Cajun is known for their authentic food and atmosphere. They offer a number of different styles of gumbo, so you can be sure there is one that everyone in the family will love. Aside from their gumbos, other traditional Cajun fare, such as red beans and rice, crawfish etouffee and lobster bisque are cooked in-house with love.
What to Watch for: While there are options for those with dietary concerns, they are somewhat limited, so guests who don’t eat meat or who have a gluten sensitivity should review the menu ahead of time to ensure that they’ll find a delicious meal that suits their needs. We’ve also heard the seating lacks for comfort.
