It's a little bit of NOLA on the West Coast for breakfast and lunch. There are beignets and coffee with chicory, po' boys, muffuletta sandwiches and eggs lot of yummy ways. It gets crowded on the weekends, but the wait is worth it.

This is a must-go breakfast destination. The coffee is excellent, a great, robust flavor, with a hint of chicory. I ordered the fried chicken and waffle, and it was far better than expected. The dish was prepared with a slight hint of Asian flair. Green onions and roasted garlic slivers garnished the dish, accompanied by a spicy maple syrup to... More

Wonderful, authentic food by a woman who lived in NOLA. This is a very popular restaurant for breakfast or brunch. Closed for dinner.

I read about this diner in my local paper singing the praises of the little town of Fairfax CA. The food was great very unique place with a creative menu. I had the Lobster Eggs Benedict "Not My First Choice" I actually had two other items that I wanted and sadly they were not able to make because they were... More

Natives of New Orleans observe a special rule: never, ever eat in restaurants outside of the Crescent City that advertise "New Orleans Style" food. Real New Orleans cuisine doesn't travel well, and the many places that try either just can't do it, or mistakenly confuse New Orleans creole cuisine with Cajun food. There is a HUGE difference. So, it was... More

We were so happy when Hummingbird Cafe opened. Breakfast is our favorite meal of the day, and this NOLA inspired menu does not disappoint. From the piping hot beignets covered with heaps of powdered sugar to the cafe au laits, everyone in your family will find something yummy to satiate their hungry appetite. I would have given this spot 5... More

We love New Orleans: beignets, gumbo, cafe au lait, crawfish and all . . . but wait I am writing a review of a tiny breakfast place in Fairfax, California, 2000 miles away ! ! ! The beignets are wonderful. The bottomless cafe au lait is powerful (tasty). The gumbo is "home made," no canned ingredients in this one. And,... More

No matter what time of the day you will see the place full of happy people. Sometimes you'll have to wait as the place is small and very popular. The reason is that it is very good food and a friendly staff.

You'll easily spend less elsewhere in Fairfax (coffee $3...but refills are free), but unlikely you will enjoy as good a start to your day. I had the 3-egg omelette with hashbrowns and sourdough toast; my wife had pancakes and spicy sausage. Perfectly prepared and every mouthful was delicious Added bonus is the smalltown atmosphere. The local regulars are greeted like... More
