This is my third visit to New Orleans in two years and each visit I have to satisfy my Crab Cake Taco craving and I am never disappointed. These friendly ladies have a great range of healthy food options and fresh juices. Get to the French Quarter Market and spoil yourself with a healthy taste of local cuisine - even... More

This place has amazing salads but the service is a little slow and not super friendly. Get out of the heat and head somewhere else.

I came here time after time during my visit for early breakfast and late lunch. I loved the blueberry pancake, ample and tasty. I ordered a side of turkey sausage - delicious. I came back for the Passion Crab Cake, which did not disappoint. The food is flavorful and menu selections are presented beautifully with more flair than I expect... More

It is not easy to find healthy low fat options in New Orleans, nor should you most of the time, but when you need something other than rich fried food this is the place to go. I had such an awesome salad I went back the next day and got it again.

This was tied for the best meal we had in New Orleans, and by far the best price. We each ordered the Crab Cake Passion salad and were extremely happy. To round things out we also split a gumbo, which was also excellent, and was a perfect amount of food. The quality and flavors the top-notch. Service is slow and... More

We ordered the crab cake po-boy on whole wheat bread and it was good. The roumalade sauce was amazing but overall a little more expensive than I care to pay for for a sandwich

My husband read the reviews so we decided to try it. All the food is made fresh when you order it so you will have to wait but it's worth it. It's tasty and filling and we all 4 ate our food with no complaints. While we waited they gave us orange wedges to eat and the water was only... More

Eatting healthy on vacation is difficult. Meals From the Heart has a wonderful organic salad with fresh greens, aspargus, beets with pistachios. Their crab cakes are amazing! It is in the French Market. You must try it!

Everyone raves about the food I New Orleans, but everything I ate was bland and nasty. We ate here twice in the 6 days we were here. Their turkey burgers are so flavorful. Crab cakes are amazing. Their sweet tea with honey is so good! They are also very friendly people. They deliver to hotels so please give them a... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
