Our first breakfast in New Orleans was at Meals From The Heart Cafe. Not only was it our best breakfast is was one of our best meals. My daughter is gluten free and we searched this cafe out ahead of our trip. We were greeted with freshly made coffee, and treated to small clementine type oranges. Everyone was so accommodating...

One of our goals for our visit to New Orleans last week was to pay a return visit to Meals From the Heart. We (again) were not disappointed and ate there twice, once for a crab cake poboy at lunch and once for a crab cake and poached egg for breakfast. Though we ate at quite a few other restaurants...

Needless to say, gluten free food in New Orleans is not easy to find. Thank goodness for Meals From the Heart Cafe located in the French Market. If you don't need gluten free, it's excellent as well. All food is made healthily and with TLC. The prices are very reasonable. There are only about 6 stools since it's a small... More

For healthy takes on New Orleans dishes - Meals From the Heart was recommended by our walking food tour guide. This spot is definitely worth coming back to for lunch. Their Black Bean Soup and Okra Gumbo looked irresistible. See our review here: http://ilianaspalette.blogspot.ca/2014/11/meals-from-heart-cafe.html

This is located in the French Market. The options there are mostly local "fast food" and not particularly healthy with the exception of this place. Understand it is not a real sit-down restaurant, just a counter with half a dozen stools. That said, the menu had a number of great choices, from fresh juices and salads to sandwiches. The folks...

So we found this on yelp and thought it sounded like a healthy meal that I would like since I'm diabetic and try to to eat gluten free. Anyway, I ordered the poached egg with crab cake and GF bread. It was SO good. The crab cake was delicious and the egg done just right. The coffee was very nice... More

Go see these wonderful folks! I found this restaurant by looking through trip advisor and we mapped it out and walked through New Orleans! It is located within the farmers Market. The owner's son whom was working today was very friendly and we decided to sit at the counter and chat with him. The gumbo was fabulous! Must go here... More
