Ask for the Dessert of the Day. It changes often but can consist of red velvet cake, cheesecake, or a delicious pie option. There are daily entree specials such as fried chicken, chicken & shrimp alfredo, hamburger steak, and grilled pork chops. All entrees come with side choices.
Thoughts: Sweet and Savory Company is a quaint restaurant with full color and eclectic decor. It is a sense of home by the food aromas and warm welcoming from staff. Even though the restaurant is in a business complex, exposure to the pond and greenery out the large windows provide a comforting atmosphere. Don’t expect to get served alcoholic beverages but try their house specialty, Doodle Berry Punch. It is a fruit punch.
Sweet and Savory Company goal is to excel in “providing irresistible foods and flavors”. They have exceeded in this goal. The food is made fresh daily. Do you love seafood? They have many options. Try the award-winning Shrimp and Grits made with their signature creamy sauce and served with garlic bread. It’s like no other in Ascension Parish. The second most popular seafood entrée is the Rich Girl, a twisted recipe to the classic shrimp po-boy.
Not into seafood? Sweet and Savory Company has a chicken and sausage gumbo. It is served year round with a side of rice and bread. The flavorful, robust broth only makes you drink it like coffee or tea. There is a plain burger called “The Company” Gourmet Stack. It is an 8-ounce all-beef patty made with their special seasoning. The fresh and local toppings are sweet maple bacon, caramelized onions, chipotle BBQ, house mayo, jalapeños, American and Swiss cheeses.
