Cooking with Paula Deen

A Charming Destination

TUCKED AWAY IN NORTHERN LOUISIANA and seated on the banks of the Ouachita River and Bayou Desiard is a delightful duo of cities rich with history and connection: Monroe-West Monroe. Many years ago, this area blossomed due to its distinct role in the industrial and commercial sectors. Nowadays, the area is often referred to as “twin cities,” generously dotted with memorable restaurants, local goods and antiques stores, a vibrant community, and, quite simply, more than meets the eye.


Boasting more than 100 locally owned restaurants, Monroe-West Monroe has something for every in Monroe. This family-owned establishment opened more than a decade ago, and its down-home feel hits you the moment you sit in one of their well-worn booths. Come hungry, because the Stuffed Biscuit with egg, cheese, bacon, and sausage gravy will keep you full until lunch, and their chocolate chip pancakes are fluffy perfection. The lunch hour is bustling, too, as they offer daily lunch plate specials and hearty slices of their famous house-made pies.
