My HUGE vegetarian muffuletta had the best olive salad and awesome bread. My daughter-in-law had the trio platter that came with very tasty fried fish and she said the tartar sauce was the best she's had!! 😍

I'm here in the French Quarter for a conference. A group of us visited Cafe Maspero nun-afternoon for lunch. Various items were ordered. I ordered French Onion soup which was excellent. I also ordered a side of red beans and rice, which was terrible. It was sauced, but every dry rice with a couple small pieces of sausage in it,... More

This was very close to our hotel so we decided to give it a try. The hostess was so welcoming and really made us feel at home. The place was crazy busy due to some church groups in the area so our waitress fell behind at times. She was very nice but was always rushing to catch up. We didn't... More

The staff was SO friendly and helpful! We stopped the first time for an appetizer and adult beverages and then later in the week for a full meal. Both times the wait staff was attentive and helpful in recommending things on the menu. Hubby had the red beans and rice and I tried the Muffaletta...both were awesome!

This cafe' is conveniently located near Jackson Square across from Jax Brewery. They had just started serving breakfast the day before and serve it only on Fri, Sat and Sunday. Windows were open which gave an outside feel. The server seemed a little scattered, but service was quick and accurate. I had the Eggs Benedict with cheesy grits. Grits were... More

We had a bowl of French Onion Soup when we were here! Seemed rather odd since it was 98 degrees out, but it was so good! I also had a toasted cheese sandwich! Honestly not impressed with it! It was reasonably priced and we enjoyed the experience!

Dropped in here for breakfast. The service was quick. We ordered the "garden district" and the " 2 egg platter" as well as the beignet sticks. The sticks arrived first. They look like a plate of fries. They were hot and fresh and were just great! The main dishes arrived soon after. We were both pleased with what we had.... 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.
