Frog City Cafe
Frog City Cafe information
The tourist board likes to say the little town of Rayne , 20 miles west of Lafayette, is the ‘Frog Capital of the World.’ What with a Frog Festival on Labor Day weekend (think frog-jumping contests) and a bevy of frog-themed murals around town, we’ll concede it’s at least the froggiest town in the USA. The wet rice fields around Rayne are ideal aquatic habitats. Locals started shipping the high-hopping amphibians to New Orleans restaurants in the 1890s; by 1946 they were being exported as far as France. Exports have since ceased, but you can still try fried frog legs at Chef Roy’s Frog City Cafe .
