Try jambalaya or gumbo at this Louisiana-inspired diner

Taste gumbo + beignets while playing a board game at Louise and Anna

Last updated: 6 September 2022

“Ain’t you a peach”, says the sign as you walk into this diner. You’re greeted with red and blue all around, thanks to the large neon lobster on the ceiling. The smell of fresh gumbo pulls you closer as you take a seat. Welcome to Louisiana. Well…sort of. 

Louise and Anna is a popular Joburg restaurant that has opened its doors in Blouberg, Cape Town. It serves Louisiana-inspired dishes like jambalaya and beignets.

If you’ve ever watched The Princess and the Frog and wondered what Tiana’s gumbo tastes like, here’s your chance. Louise and Anna’s specialty is all things Louisiana, from meat or seafood gumbo and jambalaya, to sweet beignets with syrup. You can also try a Philly cheese steak sandwich or a lobster shrimp mac & cheese.

Louise and Anna also serve brunch everyday from 10.30am. Image: Louise and Anna


Louise and Anna is a great place for an intimate date or going out with friends, mostly due to the impressive collection of boardgames. No matter the size of your table, there’s a game that will suit you, from Scrabble and 30 Seconds to Catan and Jumanji (there’s even a Rick and Morty Cluedo). 

You must pay a R100 deposit to play one of the games. Image: Simone Strydom


Louise and Anna is open: Monday to Sunday; 10.30am - 11pm
Find it: Shop 16A, Eden on the Bay (close to Kapstadt Brauhaus), Otto du Plessis Drive, Big Bay
Price range: From R40
