Restaurant On The Water

The Abita Roasting restaurant and coffee shop on the riverfront in Madisonville is one of my favorite places, not only for the food and drink (and live music from time to time) but for the location, landscaping and backyard ambiance. They have a shallow pond, a three-tiered fountain, a big oak tree, and several pieces of patio furniture to round out the relaxing, rejuvenating environment. 

They use the backyard for weddings and receptions and stuff like that, but I found it a great place just to take pictures, especially with all the "water features" surrounded by elephant ears and other lush vegetation.

Of course, the biggest "water feature" of all is the Tchefuncte River right across the street.
