We stopped here on a whim and we were so glad we did! We were looking for a breakfast stop that was reasonably priced and had good food! I had the biscuits and gravy with eggs which were very good- my only gripe was they could have used more gravy! Friendly staff and great service! I definitely recommend this place for any quick meal!

This place is small and cosy. There are no frills, but this was arguably the best eating we had over three days in New Orleans. Be early if you want to get in. Recommended.

One of our first food stops our second time in NOLA. We came on the recommendation of TripAdvisor users and we were not disappointed.

Excellent Benedict choices, both the cochon and the standard. Breakfast cocktails (bacon Bloody Mary and mimosas) were perfectly mixed. We will be back.

We stopped here for a drink when we first got to the French Quarter. They make a great Bloody Mary and my wife raved about her Cucumber Mohito. The people were very friendly and
the atmosphere was comfortable. They only have a small room with a kitchen and bar - the room has 8-10 tables and it's kind of cramped, but a fun place. They have art over an entire wall- a cool place.

We decided to give Jimmy J's a try since we wanted non-chain, local NOLA food that was close to our hotel. We were so glad we did. INCREDIBLE food and amazing service. Had 4 different dishes which were all awesome. You will not be sorry!
