Muffaletta stop for us

Read some reviews and decided to try this place for our muffaletta. We were not disappointed. Cold beers and a sandwich for our afternoon snack.

We sat down and the waitress gave us all her favorite eats, and she was right on the money. I had french onion soup that was awesome!

I had lunch at Cafe Maspero's today, and the food was great! Had the gumbo, the special Cafe Atchafalya, and the banana bread pudding. Everything was yummy especially the bread pudding. Our server Cassandra was friendly and prompt. Clean, relaxed cafe perfect for an easy, no fuss lunch!

My friend who was born and raised in NOLA brought us to this restaurant for dinner on a Friday night. There weren't a lot of people when we came but we still had to wait 30-45 minutes for our food. I ordered the seafood platter and I wasn't impressed. It was kinda oily and the batter was nothing special. My... More

Hello, My girlfriend and I were seated at this restaurant, and we looked over the menu and found a section that said traditional creole dishes or something to that affect. So, my girlfriend got the Red Bean and Rice, and I got the Creole Jambalaya. Please do not try this restaurant if you are looking to get traditional Cajun/Creole food.... More

No crawfish on the menu, no sweet tea. If there is a group at the table, they don't take separate orders, it'll all be on one check and you figure it out. Food was good, not anything over the ordinary. Nice atmosphere and fast service. When I go back to NOLA, I will try another restaurant, though.

This place had all the authentic New Orleans food. The price was a little steep and the quality was just a step below good.

I am a huge fan of Masperos. I have personally been eating there for well over 12 years now. Any time that I take family to the Quarter, I introduce them to Masperos and then they become fans. Recently my wife and I stopped by to get something to eat. The service was good and there was no wait to... More

We stopped in for some wine and a Muffuletta and found ourselves in one of the Oldest Buildings in the French Quarter, erected in 1788. This is where Andrew Jackson met with the Lafitte Brothers to plan the battle of New Orleans. And this is were we not only had a fabulous lunch but enjoyed the endlessly wonderful friendship and...
