In South Louisiana a good piece of bread or a perfect roll to sop up the gravy on a plate, well, life may not get any better than that—a little life kiss, right?

A slice of cajun garlic bread, bread with only butter, a melt-in-your-mouth roll all of those variations of bread add to the thrill of eating a delicious meal.

In Lafayette and Acadiana, people love bread. Biscuits too, but for now let's focus on bread. Fresh Evangeline Maid bread for toast or a sandwich is nothing short of euphoria. The gas station roll you find in a plate lunch styrofoam container can make your day better. And the one that comes on a plate at a diner or fancy restaurant can make the meal.

Bread is awesome. Maybe that's why it's the first item you have to stop eating when you start a miserable diet. No bread, no happiness. Name a diet that invites you to eat all the bread you want to, there are none. That's one of the reasons diets are so painstakingly hard. No bread means your life is not 100% complete.

We wanted to find out where to find the best bread/rolls in Acadiana. From a restaurant, gas station or any other place. So we took to social media and to our surprise there was a 3-way tie.

Here are Acadiana's Favorite Places for the Best Bread/Rolls.

Very nice breakfast. The place is packed but you wouldn't know it by the staff. They were friendly and attentive and our meal came out quickly. Crawfish omelet and two egg breakfast both with grits and a biscuit. Fresh, hot and delicious. -Cristy Z., Yelp
