NoNo's Yummy Cajun Food and Beignets

Brent and I love NoNo's in Littleton. We've eaten there several times and always enjoy the atmosphere of a relaxed southern home and the cajun/creole/southern food made with soul.

Heavy handed mint julep
We had a busy Saturday and decided it was a great evening to sit outside and enjoy mint juleps. We had some crawfish to start--done up just right with andouille sausage, red potatoes, and corn. The seasoning was just right and absolutely delicious!

Crawfish "appetizer"

Brent had one of his standard dishes...the Crawfish Monica (left). A crawfish creamy tomato sauce atop curly pasta. And I had the special...Cajun Pasta (right). It was a creamy sauce made with white wine and lots of meat--crawfish, catfish, andouille sausage and probably more--atop angel hair pasta.

Both were so indulgent and filling. We traded dishes about half way through but we still only finished about 1/4 of the portions.

For dessert we shared some beignets. I've had beignets at Cafe Du Monde in New Orleans. I've had the beignets at Lucile's in Denver. NoNo's won the "Closest to New Orleans" style. So good.


  1. Oh man, that looks so good! We never had any cajun food while we lived down there, now I wish we had!!! And after reading the past few posts I've missed, I just have to say that Brent is a dang lucky guy if you cook like this all the time! Do you think you could find a good southern recipe for me so I can stop kicking myself? :)

  2. I'll search for something just for you, Natalie. I'm going to try to avoid anything fried though. :)
