Joey and Brandi Najolia of Cafe Lynn in Mandeville have been serving up delicious food and fantastic service for over 12 years. With immense experience in both the culinary arts and management, this husband and wife team work tirelessly to create fresh and flavorful dishes while serving their community. “We love working together and with our Cafe Lynn family,” stated owner Brandi Najolia  “The key to our marriage and business success is respecting each other in and out of the kitchen.” Cafe Lynn takes pride in their authentic French Creole cuisine and provides patrons with the freshest of ingredients. “My husband Joey was classically trained in Pardou, France and brings that expertise to our restaurant,” stated Brandi. “He won’t ever take short cuts when it comes to freshness.” Whether it is their Chicken Grenonbloise, Crispy Duck Confit, or fresh Fish Du Jour, Cafe Lynn provides customers a variety of plates that satisfy any taste. Local produce plays a intricate part in each dish and dietary requests are handled with ease. “We are gluten and allergy friendly which sets us apart from many restaurants in the region,” said Brandi. “A common misconception is that French food is heavy, but we keep our dishes light.”

Not only does the food shine at Cafe Lynn, but also the welcoming atmosphere. Their light and airy designs create a tranquil environment which sets the perfect tone for a special event or casual dining experience. “We want you to feel like you are a part of our family here at Cafe Lynn,” said Brandi. The vision of Cafe Lynn is to serve the community with purpose. By keeping their cuisine and service consistent, Brandi believes that the restaurant will continue to strive in excellence and grow to its fullest potential. “Overall, our vision is to grow, thrive, and to stay consistent without losing our focus. Joey and I want our kids to grow up seeing that with hard work, anything is possible.”
