Great little cafe for breakfast. Nothing fancy, but who needs fancy for delicious?! My husband and I were in town for a conference in mid September. When we asked someone where to go to breakfast, they pointed us here. We were so happy they did! We both ordered the same dish, pork dripping eggs benedict. WOW is all I can... More

Great food, good pricing, nice service, and bloody mary's and mimosa's at the door while you wait to get a table in this busy for a good reason place. Food was fun, creative, well prepared, quick, and not over priced. What is not to like? Atmosphere was interesting and fun. Obviously, stop in for brunch or lunch

Came here for brunch with my husband and loved it. It was about a 30min wait but so worth it. The double Mimosa is huge and sooooo good. The food was delicious and our waiter was really nice. Totally recommend this place!

Buy some reviews of others. I ordered a traditional breakfast while ordering waiters seemed a little disinterested. As I did not know this kind of food I was asking questions. Idid not feel it was explained enough to me.The bacon was on the small side. When I finished eating and it came around to tip time did the wait staff... More

The omelets and grits are the best......especially liked the Egg White Omelet with spinach and goat cheese.....and their grits are the 'real thing'....not instant! Yummy!

This is a great place to go to get away from the normal breakfast. The staff was amazing the place was comfortable and busy and the food was unique and delicious. I would go back here again to try some new items on the menu.

A very busy place with a line out the door. All sorts of customers from couples to big families. The bar keep was very talkative and took orders right away. The food was really hearty, lots of meat and delicious biscuits. Didn't know they had expresso, would have ordered that over the regular coffee. Worth a visit for sure.

Great food, wide variety to choose from. Helpful and polite service. The Brandy Milk punch is a great way to start a day in New Orleans.
