This place is located near the Jefferson Parish Courthouse in Gretna, across the river from New Orleans. It's pretty easy to find. They serve all the meals here, but it really is a breakfast restaurant and that's what they are good at. Service is fast and friendly and the egg dishes are quite good, though I have noticed soggy bacon... More

The food is definitely mediocre. If you live in old gretna it's just convenient. About the only thing you can't screw up is the bacon egg and cheese sandwich. Coffee & on the expressway runs circles around this place, and you get to eat donuts over there while you wait! Don't waste your time here for anything other than the... More

I have been there several times the food is average but I find it a little over priced. The atmosphere is nice.

As a previous diner said, the food is greasy but, hey, this the West Bank of the Mississippi River, right? I had the rueben sandwich and fries which was OK. Service was good. The best thing about this dining experience was the train that came right down the middle of the street right outside the restaurant. I will tick the... More

Great atmosphere for a Family get together. Very open with good view of old Gretna and there is always artwork for sale from local artist on the walls. Parking is always easy too.

I have been here on several occasions. My favorite place on the westbank to have breakfast b/c the service is good and the food is mostly good (hashbrowns were cold and mushy). The atmosphere is very casual and laid back and I like that. It's the kind of place to go for a good time with friends or family. Not... More

Went for Breakfast and was very disappointed! My eggs were swimming in oil, my hash browns were cold and mushy. Will not be back.

This place was our last-ditch effort to find a good place to have breakfast when we are in town visiting the kids. I am so glad we found it, and so sad that we found it on our last day there…and even more sad when I think of all the money we wasted on crappy breakfast in the Quarter. The... More

My family loves this place, I'm not impressed. I guess that's because they like to have breakfast there (it's hard to mess up bacon and eggs?) and I went during lunch. I ordered the BBQ chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries. What I got was a very large but very bland mostly cooked chicken breast that coincidentally had BBQ sauce... More

A repurposed Chevrolet dealership, Common Grounds offers great breakfasts, burgers and super appetizers at retro prices. Comfortable, in the heart of Old Gretna. A contrast to The Quarter or Uptown restaurants. Enjoy!
