If you love authentic Cajun/Creole food, you won’t want to miss “Laginappe – A Cajun Creole Eatery”. Master Chef Dan has taken special care to bring Louisiana’s finest culinary favorites and Bourbon street essence to downtown Marquette. His black beans and rice and traditional shrimp jambalaya will leave you saying, “Wow!”
Marquette is also a creative hub where an artist with creative materials, combined with a unique artistic approach can fashion every day items into quirky and beautiful art. One such resident is Andy Gregg, a former cyclist turned artist who displays his unique, one-of-a-kind chairs, stools, and tables made entirely from old bicycle parts. Marquette also boasts the wonderfully bizarre Lakenenland, a free drive-through art exhibit of industrial scrap yard art. These beautiful, freaky, and unique creations of scrap machine metal are a must-see for those looking to complete their Marquette experience. Feeling creative yourself? Be sure to visit “Hot Plate,” a paint your own pottery store which allows visitors to relax, have fun, and produce something they can be proud of!
