The food is delicious. Service is impeccable. It has a very small town feel and the patrons do stare like they’ve never seen a black person but the staff is welcoming and it has great prices.

This is a food store with a cafe. Its about 20 minutes from the French Quarter and worth the drive. They have a very good muffaletta that rivals Central Grocery and is $4 cheaper. $15.99 for a whole. Central is now $19.95 for a whole....More

Came here for dinner while visiting family in the area. Great local business with friendly folks. Had delicious combo of fried shrimp & catfish. The servings are HUGE. It is a little pricey, but so worth it. It's always good to support local businesses.
