Lafayette has wonderful dining options.
There are many choices within 2 miles of the LITE Center, both locally owned favorites and fast food/chain restaurants. Downtown Lafayette has some unique options as well, many of them on Jefferson St.
The local committee has compiled their favorites, loosely classified as either Local Favorites or Chain and Fast Food. No warranties on actual local or chain ownership are implied.
These lists are idiosyncratic to the local committee members who curated them.
