I enjoyed a lovely dinner with a friend here during a weekend trip. It is tiny, quirky, and the food was delish.

Lovely outdoor seating area, waiter was friendly and helpful. Food portions were a good size, authentic tasty dishes and my husband enjoyed the good selection of beer. Would recommend.

I had wanted to try New Orleans Creole Cafe on a couple of previous trips to San Diego, but things just hadn't worked out. Well, I must say, it was definitely worth the trip! My girlfriend and I enjoyed the outdoor setting on the patio. The sweet iced tea was so refreshing! I believe my girlfriend had at least 3... More

My friend and I went to New Orleans in July for a vacation. This place brought back some great memories. We had the red beans and rice with alligator sausage and the jambalaya. We had the Abita Purple Haze beer! Everything was delicious! Our server was so friendly and the ambiance was charming. It's in the garden behind the famously... More

Right next to "America's Most Haunted House", New Orleans Creole Cafe has great food and attentive service. Don't be shy about peeking in the kitchen to find someone to seat you, especially if there are few customers when you get there. Our service was great, and they made my son's gumbo extra spicy for him. It was nice to do... More

Enjoyed a peaceful lunch in the shady courtyard. Watched the butterflies go from flower to flower. A nice rest spot from walking around old town... Enjoyed iced tea and BBQ shrimp.

I recently stopped by the New Orleans Creole Cafe for lunch while visiting San Diego Old Town. This restaurant is hidden away behind a cluster of very populated local Mexican cuisine restaurants that seemed to be overcrowded with tourists. I steered away from the crowds and chose to dine at New Orleans Creole Cafe for what I hoped to be... More

A Creole/Cajun cafe right in the middle of a dozen Mexican restaurants - who knew? After eating close to a dozen tacos the night before, it was great to change things up a bit. The New Orleans Creole Cafe is a short walk from the center of Old Town. It has an outdoor cafe for eating, as well as an... More

This unlikely spot in Old Town was a hit for dinner last weekend. The restaurant is tiny and unassuming, but the food is excellent and the service was attentive. I recommend the gumbo and jambalaya. A nice change from the touristy Mexican restaurants that abound in Old Town.
