  Derek and Idolka Villavaso opened the breakfast and lunch spot Bayou Breakfast (3111 Grand Route St. John; 504-252-9129) on Nov. 1.

  The couple also are partners in Marigny restaurant and nightclub Vaso (1407 Decatur St., 504-272-0929; and say they were inspired to open the cafe after noticing a lack of breakfast options in the area.

  "We saw a need and a niche that needed to be filled," Derek says.

  The menu includes omelets, French toast, pancakes and dishes with a strong Southern or Creole twist, such as marinated catfish Benedict, fried lemon-pepper frog legs with cayenne and blue cheese dressing and an alligator and andouille sausage omelet.

  Lunch fare includes a small selection of po-boys and salads. Derek says they will be applying for a liquor permit and hope to offer bloody marys and mimosas.

  Plans to open a cold-pressed juice and smoothie bar in the Warehouse District also are underway. Derek said Joose Heaven will open at 841 Fulton St. within the month.

  Bayou Breakfast is open from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.
