Acadiana Profile: The Grand Pigs-periment

As we are sure you know the concept has changed since the interview. We are now going to be a full on Brick and Mortar restaurant, but still with bacon in everything!!!!

Opening date coming soon!

The popular chef and former face of E’s Kitchen has taken Acadiana’s passion for all things pork to the next level, opening Avec Bacon Café in the middle of March 2018. The entire menu is bacon-infused. There are the predictable BLT as well as bacon breakfast biscuits, but there’s also mad scientist creations like bacon cinnamon rolls — a seemingly simple recipe Ayo spent months perfecting. To clarify, this isn’t the bacon you pick up in a vacuum-sealed pouch. No, the bacon at Avec Bacon Café takes five days to make, according to Ayo.

Developing Lafayette covers Avec Bacon progress

Back in October of 2017, we shared the awesome news of a bacon-centered restaurant, called Avec Bacon Café, coming soon to Bertrand Drive.

The restaurant is still happening, but in a different location. The new location for Avec Bacon Café will be 4807 Johnston, behind Baskin & Robin, in the former Good To Geaux restaurant.

The new location is already setup for most of Avec Bacon’s needs, and will allow for a quicker turnaround for opening the highly anticipated Bacon restaurant. Also coming with Avec Bacon Café is fresh, locally roasted Rêve Coffee.

Expected opening date is about six weeks away.
