Great crab cakes!

This is a lovely place for lunch, but don't expect it to be served in a hurry! We had a plain crab cake each & they were delicious - all served with a smile too!

Wonderful Crab-Cakes, Salads and Juices. Well worth the wait (Why do some people object to having to wait for freshly made food? I'd be worried if the food was lying for hours!! - perhaps Americans are too used to quick food, they need to slow down) It is also a great place to watch the hussle and bussel of the... More

I came back to Meals from the Heart twice on my trip since we stayed just around the corner and they offer some vegan breakfast options. The food was good but it take a long time and seems overly priced for the portion sizes. But, I do appreciate having vegan options, which can be hard to find, and would likely... More

Great Crab cakes but not worth the 30 minute wait we had. They should let their customers know the wait time , especially when it's over 15 minutes.

Stopped here while touring the French Market and we definitely wished we would not have just eaten so we could eat here. The menu looked AMAZING but we settled for the "Vegan power shake" I think it was called? It seemed like it did take a bit for the food to come out but, remember, it is made fresh, so... More

Meals From the Heart Cafe in the French Market Seating at the counter for only 7 but plenty of tables across the way. If you can possibly grab a counter seat, grab it since these ladies are a hoot interacting with each other and the customers. If you don't snag a counter seat, it's a bit of a scrum putting... More

The French Market is a wonderful place to wander around. There are stalls with arts and crafts, food items and a variety of vendors. It is not always easy to get non-greasy or tasty food in places like these. Which is one reason why Meals from the Heart is a great place to eat. It has something for everyone -... More

After a few meals in NOLA, your gut is gonna be so happy to find this place! All that fried, buttery stuff can make you a little uncomfortable, but the food here is health and delicious...a welcome oasis!

The concept behind this restaurant is good but their food and service leaves much to be desired. I waited for 45 minutes for my order and when it finally arrived my crab cake po' boy was a huge disappointment. Firstly, the crab flavor was nonexistent (you would not know that it was crab)and the texture was dry. The only redeeming... More
