The Black Sparrow is a nice addition to downtown Lafayette. I suspect it is best enjoyed in the evening as more of a pub, but my experience has been limited to its lunch offerings. At night, its solid beer selection would be an advantage. It has a nice bar, and the wait staff has always been friendly. They aren’t really set up for take out, but have been more than happy to let me call in an order to carry out for lunch.
For lunch, it has a good variety of sandwiches. For me, the BLT&E is a standard – Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato, and Egg. It runs about $7 and, despite what you might think, the egg is an excellent addition to the time honored favorite.
In addition to sandwiches, the Black Sparrow offers salads and what I suppose I would describe as Mediterranean plates involving variously hummus, dates, olives, and goat cheese. I have not been so adventurous as to try these things, but if they are as good as their sandwiches, they are probably worth trying out.
Kid friendly: No. It’s a bar.
Methods of payment: Cash or credit.
