“Breakfast heaven!”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Loved the decor and the food at this place so much we visted every morning of our trip! Coffee is adequate so you may want to java up elsewhere - but the pancakes are light and grits smooth and tasty!

“Excellent Cafe”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Excellent food and service. We ate breakfast 4 times and dinner once during our stay in New Orleans. The breakfasts were always very good and the waiter was really friendly even though he was really busy. Dinner selection may be limited but very good - fresh local produce. Try the famous Bacon Bloody Mary and the Cucumber Moito. Highly recommended - bang for you buck.

“Seafood po boy not bad”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Clean, fast, helpful staff. Their local flare is the seafood po boy. It was enough for two and really reasonable.

“good food, weak service”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Service was terrible---nice overall but just slow and not friendly. Food was good but there is better breakfast in the area. Can't even remember what I had.
