We had heard good things about this place and wanted to try it, but when we got there, we found that there is absolutely no handicapped access. The stairs don't even have decent handrails. We went elsewhere.

We kept hearing that NOLA serves great food and they didn’t disappoint. The red beans & rice dish is probably the best we’ve ever had.

Be sure to sit outside to enjoy the view at Cafe NOLA! The food was cooked perfectly and the NOLA spice was on point! You get the taste of New Orleans from the beach!

Sorry, I am just seeing this, but no to future travelers, a lot of stairs, no elevator. But a very good restaurant that could provide take-out or delivery for another option.
