Snowballs just like I had when I lived in New Orleans. Muffalatas almost as good as central grocery.

Was impressed by all the reviews so wanted to try it. It was a very small place. Food was ok, nothing special, could have made it at home. I thought snowballs were going to be something special, it was just shaved ice. & i thought the beignets were going to be something special, it's basically just funnel cake but in ball form. Not impressed at all!

We tried the roast beef sandwich. Is was warm and potroast type beef. Very tasty. The beignets were very good. Order at the counter and they bring out food. The owner is awsome. He came to our table and talked to us for 15 minutes. The girl at the counter didn't have much personality. Will be back.

I was looking forward to the beignets and made two trips to get them. The first was aborted because they don't open 'till noon on Mondays, so I had to come back another day when they opened at 9 a.m. The service was good and fast; the beignets came out hot in a paper sack (a to-go order) covered with the powdered sugar. Many reviewers have said the beignets themselves are as good as those from the Cafe du Monde in New Orleans, but I just don't remember the N'awlins variety as being as doughy and quite as heavy as these. Beignets should be light and airy with a crispy crust, like little pillows. So I was disappointed. I didn't try any of the other offerings, but I might go back for a sno-ball because they sound very much like the Hawai`ian shave ice I love.

I tried the roast beef as suggested by the waitress. It was delicious and not your typical roast beef but more like pot roast. The shrimp po boy was great. The beignets were delightful and the snow ball was worth the trip. The owner came out several times to check on the guest. Very large portions, friendly staff amazing food and reasonable prices.
