The store itself is jam packed with lots of great stuff and is clean, neat and organized. The floor staff are friendly and helpful and can often assist you if you really don't know what the heck you're looking for. However, the cashiers leave a bit to be desired in the customer service area - they are generlly surly and perhaps would be better suited to stocking merchandise in the back room. Unfortunately, the parking is absolutely atrocious! The lot is so tiny and there is minimal street parking available. Parking proves to be just an appetizer for the surliness of the cashiers. The best thing, is that they generally have what you're looking for and they open EARLY! 7:00 A.M.! That's a boon for those of us who detest the parking issue.
I cannot say enough good stuff about these people! We have had numerous cats over the years, and with that comes the requisite illnesses and emergencies. The staff at the Lafayette Animal Hospital are caring and professional. I think even the pets look forward to going there and getting all that extra attention! They truly treat your pets as part of your family and know the importance of keeping you informed. You can generally visit your hospitalized pet without any hassles. In an emergency, they are WONDERFUL! I would recommend them to anyone! They have gone above and beyond the call of duty for my family.
The UPS store in Lafayette is a bit of a hidden treasure. Located on the main strip, you may pass by it without realizing it. BUT, if you are in need of mailing services, copy services, paper, or the myriad of other products/services we all find ourselves in need of now and again, these are the folks to see! Friendly, helpful staff. The store is well stocked and the equipment is never "down". Another benefit is that they are open BEFORE the post office and AFTER the post office, to meet those needs we have during off hours. Parking in the rear, so you don't have to do the parallel parking thing (Thank God!).
The Rising Loafer is located in Lafayette. It is a small, yet quaint establishment that garners a feeling of comfort and well-being. Serving breakfast and lunch, the menu is full of lovely offerings. The omelets are to die for! The sandwiches are tasty and plentiful. Dine in or take out - either way the staff treats you like part of the family. It's easy to call in your order and it is always ready when you arrive. Not only do you get your meal in a timely manner, but you get a gracious and warm greeting to go along with it. Outside seating available weather permitting.
If you like good barbeque, come to Bo's! Located in Lafayette, the restaurant does not make you feel like you need to posture for your dinner. Easy, relaxed atmosphere and excellent food. You have several choices available for lunch and dinner: 1/2 chicken, beef ribs, pork ribs, beef brisket, steak, and more! Each mean is accompanied by a couple of side dishes (generally potato salad and a veggie), as well as sliced baguette and bbq sauce on the side. The owners and the staff are friendly and efficient - makes you feel right at home! They have expanded their seating area, and have created a warm, welcoming environment. Come on down and have a bite!
