Cozy little deli

I had the moffaletta, which was very tasty, if not exceptional. It was made in a sandwich press, which made it nice and crispy on the outside and melted the cheese on the inside. This no-frills deli has a friendly and cozy atmosphere. I came at 11:30am on a Saturday and there was no line or... read more

As my family and I were exploring the Garden Districe of New Orleans we came upon a little shop called the Grocery. We thought that it was a corner grocery store and seeing how it was getting to be lunch time we went in to buy some sodas and fruit. Little did we know that this was really a resturant... More

We were getting ready to take a tour of the Lafayette Cemetery, and we wanted to get a bite to eat. This place showed up on Apple maps near the cemetery. We almost walked by it because it looked like a small grocer mart from the outside. We went in, and the place was really nice. Beautiful paintings on walls,... More

The shop moves at its own pace - and good for them. Po-boys and pressed sandwiches - today I had the mushroom and brie soup, great complement to my Southwestern club. One of my favorite sandwiches is the pressed Chicken pesto sandwich. If calling in an order then ask about any sandwich specials they may have for the day.

Stopped by The Grocery after walking around the Garden District. The service was excellent. I ordered the chicken pesto sandwich and it was delicious. Large portion and I wasn't able to eat it all. Definitely recommend to those visiting this area and looking for a simple, local eatery.

We made this corner our home base for saturday parades, and we were glad we did! They were selling sandwiches and gumbo out of the window to parade watchers. We had the muffaletta - pressed, really good! I would come back outside of parade season and have it again.

My daughter and I stopped in after a walking tour of the Garden District. I had read they had the best grilled shrimp Po Boy, but didn't see it on the menu. I asked, and he said they could make their pressed sandwich with grilled shrimp, which is on French bread. We halved that, and it was so delicious with... More

We were so hungry after tooling around in the Garden District and touring the cemetery and homes for about 3 hours. The Grocery popped up as a close by lunch spot, so we looked past the somewhat ramshackle conditions inside and ordered. Had a very good muffuletta and two vegetarian sandwiches, plus the brie and mushroom soup was surprisingly amazing.... More

We had a roast beef with gravy po' boy (per recommendation) and gumbo and it was one of the simplest but best meals we had during our whole visit! The gravy made the sandwich super sloppy but we were licking our fingers by the end. Gumbo was also hearty and with perfect spice.Great way to fill our bellies before walking... More

We had the Cuban sandwich and the muffaletta, both pressed. Very tasty, a nice twist on these classic sandwiches. Very nice staff who were willing to change up my sandwich a bit because I'm always one of those who doesn't like this or that. Also, the brownie?? To die for. Hmmm...maybe they should press the brownies too. I'd try that... More
