Best cajun breakfast ever

Our family went for the traditional breakfast food. The food was very good and the service was quick and polite. It seemed like a busy place. Parking is a little tricky. We parked on a side street and walked about a block.

We had a late breakfast in the Neighborhood Cafe Sunday morning. There was a short wait, but excellent service. We ordered different menu options : cajun breakfast,eggs benedict, breakfast buritto and 2 eggs combo. All was great, cajun breakfast was a little spicy. I would not order an orange juice again- it was not freshly squized, still good quality.

I had the Cajun breakfast! It was basically Cajun andouille over hash browns with cheese and peppers, then topped with basted eggs and hollandaise sauce. Sourdough toast on the side. It was excellent!!!

Just a great Sunday morning breakfast with friends. The homemade corned beef hast was homemade. It was so good I could have taken a nap in it :-). Just the kind of charming, neighborhood place to take the family or friends.

Small and quiet but delivers big on service and food. 4 of us had differing breakfast orders which cam to is in under 15 minutes. Has browns were perfect and my 3 egg 9mlet with sausage and cheese was outstanding. Coffee was plentiful and they brought it in a warming carafe. The other three dishes were breakfast sandwiches and two... More

Because of the favorable comments here on trip advisor, my friend and I went for breakfast and they exceeded expectations. Wasn't sure what to have, but our great waiter guided us through the menu based on what we liked and his recommendations were spot on! (very good menu choices!!) I had the eggs benedict with extra crispy hash browns and... More

First time but will be back many more. Had 3 excellent dinners - roast turkey sandwich with sweet potato tater tots; pulled pork with home-made fries; and cajun breakfast skillet. All delicious and well-prepared. Lots of other great-sounding stuff on the menu, can't wait to try them! Also had an amazingly delicious pie that was like a rich toll-house cookie,... More
