While standing on a corner in Walla Walla trying to decide where to have lunch, a lovely woman stopped and suggested we go to Whoopemup Cafe, her favorite place. She was right. The restaurant is a cozy spot full of welcoming atmosphere. The staff is...More

My experience was in the original Waitsburg, WA, restaurant. The staff is most personable and amenable to menu deviations. The food is outstanding -except for the "wedge salad" which is little more than iceberg lettuce in a wedge configuration. Never mind though, you'll be battling...More

This is not your usual "southern cooking." This is Cajun/Creole cooking elevated to an art form. Four entrees, lots of food, all perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. The jambalaya is not to be missed. And yes, it's all wonderfully spicy. The restaurant is friendly, bustling...More

Stopped in for lunch. Glad to see the full menu was available. We had the crawfish flatbread, muffuletta and pulled pork. Terrific flavors, large portions and easy to share. The sweet is a must as an accompaniment.

Sorry to hear that your experience was not up to par! We once had a guest say to us that "ketchup is too spicy for me!" If that describes your palate, Creole & Cajun cuisine could indeed be a challenge. Since you're not alone in...More

This is a new restaurant in Walla Walla since our last visit to town, and it is wonderful! My husband and I both enjoyed our menu choices (I had the jambalaya, which I highly recommend). Our server was very good, answering questions about the menu...More

Thank you so much for your kind words! What we have in common with NOLA is the love (and soul) we put into our food. Your server has been part of our Whoopemup Family since she was 16! We are so proud of her, and...More

We went to Whoopemum Hollow Cafe on a cold night in December. That being said, the Gumbo sounded wonderful and it definitely was. My husband had the Jambalaya and enjoyed it just as much. The mini cornbread was also very good---would have liked more!

No---we didn't have reservations and had no problem---I supposed if there is a big event doing on in town or at the college that reservations would be a good idea--otherwise not really necessary

It's a good idea. Sometimes during the winter, they close earlier than usual if they don't have a lot of business, but they won't if they know you're coming in.
