We visited ST Martinsville LA. from Poches RV Park, to find ST John Restaurant. We were told by a person at the visitor’s center and a tour guide that they had the best crab cakes. Linda agreed, saying it was the best crab cake she ever had except for her mother's. Bob had a seafood platter and a cup of crab bisque which was the best he ever had. It’s a BYOB place if so inclined.
Nothing fancy outside, but the food is delicious
Bob's super crab bisque and his fresh seafood platter
Linda's super crab cake, a lot bigger then it looks.
With our bellies full we the visited Longfellow Evangeline State Historic Site, and the Evangeline Oak.

We also toured the Church of ST Marin de Tours. We walked the historic town to check out some of the old buildings, and then did a driving tour around town.
All the street signs are in English and French
Shows the church influence at the time
While in the area we figured we were so close to Avery Island it was worth another visit. We were here several years ago. We again toured the Jungle Gardens and of course the Tabasco factory which helped put Avery island on the map.
