Perfect Afternoon

We went here for an afternoon snack. I loved the restaurant thought it was so cool. We had a cheese platter,which was phenomenal, Wine, and had this delicious lemon cake. We sat out on the patio and it was so relaxing watching life pass us by as we ate our cheese and drank our wine.

This place is absolutely spot on for a French neighborhood restaurant in NOLA. From a tree growing right thru the roof of the dining room to the perfectly slightly rude servers you feel at a French cafe all the way. Specials are always well placed and listen to the waiters recommendation on these. Escargots and pate are awesome and the... More

Another good meal at an excellent NOLA restaurant. The outdoor setting was a bit cool for the time of year, however the service and meals were enjoyed by all. My duck leg was cooked to perfection and just fell off the bone. My companions eat French Onion soup, which they consumed with out giving me at least a small taste.... More

Came here for a quick lunch before ending vacation and flying home. Sat in the patio area, and enjoyed the fresh air, sunshine, tree growing through the middle of the restaurant, and great food and service. Ordered the quail dish and it was cooked to perfection. My wife had a salad with chicken on top, excellant. Entire experience is well... More

So many of my out-of-town friends have raved about Cafe Degas that I had to try it. And so I did … and I liked it, but I didn't love it. The atmosphere was casual and fun, unpretentious. The dishes I ordered were good, and well priced, but there was nothing really special about them. And the service was, well,... More

What a gem this place is! You will definitely want to make a reservation here! The place is small and quaint and the service is amazing. But let's get to the food! We started with the duck ravioli. So delicate and light. Was the perfect starter and introduction to this great menu. The next must have is the French onion... More

my friend had eaten here before, and chose this cafe for us to have lunch.....loved it! The quiche was so light and tasted divine. The salad was fresh and had a nice light dressing. Loved being able to get a Kroningburg beer!

We're headed to the museum at city Park and looked for a place to eat. The tree-lined streets and garden like atmosphere are delightful. French food without being too fussy. I can't wait to bring some friends here.
