Baker’s Cajun Cafe

This place was open from 1981 to 2001. Wonderful, affordable food and my introduction to anything New Orleans style.  1126 Euclid Ave was originally just a house, it was owned by Mrs. Sarah Eason in up until the 1950’s when the commercial store-front was added to the front where it housed the F & S Grill. After Barker’s closed, a wine-centered place called Bang! opened which was pretty good, then there was some weird sushi/breakfast place for a bit. Now it’s Kimi’s which is supposed to be a decent Ethiopian restaurant and a convenience store on the east side.

Here’s Barker’s old menu:

You may notice it mentions parking at the end: at that time Sevananda was located in what is now Rag-O-Rama. If you’ve ever seen the movie “Driving Ms. Daisy”, the building was used as a 1950’s Piggly Wiggly. Nice tile work survives there.
