We shared a crab cake tacos (2) so I suppose I can’t complain at the price of €18.20 with tax. The tacos and the service were very good, but note it’s not fast food.

This is the best Gluten Free friendly spot to eat in New Orleans. Very casual in a flea market like setting. Delicious food. First time getting to try a gluten free crab cake. Great fresh squeezed orange juice made right in front of us.
