Hope the owner doesn't get mad, but we were going to walk right by this place when a nice young man outside offered us a free appetizer, we fell for it and didn't regret it one bit! I had a muffuletta, which was huge and...awesome, while my daughter had the blackened chicken and creole jambalaya licking the plate clean. There was a crowd but our waitress steadily refilled our drinks and made small talk until our meals arrived, making us feel like special customers. Don't walk by like we almost did, stop in ... and by the way, the free appetizer we chose was the chicken parm bites - double dog delicious!More

Cafe Maspero's was a wonderful place to dine. We had the beignet fries and they were amazing. We definately will be returning to this place every visit. Can't wait to go back already. The staff was friendly and the bloody mary was perfectly spiced. D-Money

If you're looking for that New Orleans favorite, a great Muffaletta sandwich, go to Cafe Maspero, a French Quarter favorite. And thanks to our server Theron B. for his great service.

Have been to Masepero’s probably a dozen times in my life as a local resident. Food was always consistent and reasonably priced. Cold French fries and a sloppily put together of a mediocre at best muffuletta for $18 + tax and tip. Needless to say...I will look elsewhere for food when I am back in that area.More

Last night in The French Quarter so we had an early dinner (6pm) and so we chose this place for its location and variety of food, and it was a winner, server was new and shy but very attentive, food was great, and the manager...stop by and chatted with us a while. At some time hopefully we will returnMore

Arrived to two members of staff arguing who then continued to argue as they showed us to our table. Our server seemed completely disinterested in doing her job and was very blunt and rude. The food was okay though, portions were good but fries were...cold. The other members of staff were very friendly however especially the man at the door.More

This café has a little bit of everything. From familiar classics to first class New Orleans meals! My first interaction with this café was the hostess, who didn't seem to want to be there and do her job. Zero enthusiasm. That was where the negative...experience ended. Kynnedy was my server and she was on point! Got my drink order, answered my questions and everything came out almost exactly as I wanted it. My meat was a little under my requested temperature, but that wasn't her fault. I do enjoy a rare bit of beef now and again, but I did order medium. Regardless, it was so good and exactly what I needed to get me through the rest of my day! I was seated by the hostess stand and did see that the hostess remained unenthusiastic so it wasn't me. However, on the way out, she was all smiles. Go figure.More

Classic eggs benedict was superb! My friend, a Louisiana local, had the Atchafala omlet with crawfish and gave it a big thumbs 👍. Well priced for the French Quarter. Literally cool w/fans and air as well as a 😎 vibe. Exceptional service.

We arrived in NOLA on Monday, July 18 and found this restaurant after walking a few blocks from our hotel. We were seated immediately (this was around 3:00) and all the employees we encountered were friendly. Wide selection of menu items for us to choose...from…the chicken Parmesan bites, roast beef po’ boy and chicken po’ boy were ordered. Food came out in a timely fashion, Generous portions and everything tasted delicious. We will definitely return next time we’re in New Orleans.More

Amazing food. Absolutely perfect. Great friendly staff. Even got a hello from. The executive chef. Best omelets I've ever eaten. One criticism (not really even) is that despite what this site says its not really vegetarian friendly. But it it's wonderful.

We used to visit café maspero quite often but had not been in several years. Today was very disappointing! When we asked our waitress about the type of bread offered for the sandwiches we mentioned the muffaletta type bread we Had gotten in the past...for our sandwiches and we were told that would be the soft bun. Basically my ham and Swiss was round slices of deli ham with melted Swiss cheese on a hamburger bun for $18. Nothing like it used to be. Very disappointed and will not return.More

The restaurant does not take reservations. I do not remember if it is open. Probably not. But many other restaurants are open. Try Palace Cafe.
