Great little diner style restaurant. Breakfast anytime. Friendly staff. If you are a large group, you may not all get counter space together. But you will leave with a full belly.

Yes, they have this scoreboard sheet for taking your order. It was marked up and when we were done we took it to the register line for processing. She told us a price and we paid. Later we figured out they added another breakfast on to the tab.
Any normal place would give you your bill at your table so you can check it.
Anyway - be careful I am sure they do this to all the foreigners.

Meanwhile, the service was lousy we could not get right silverware and our waiter was rude.
It was morning but we never could get any coffee.
The food was very average. Shredded potatoes out of a bag. Eggs slopped together - I order corned beef expecting big chunks of corned beef. I got tiny red specs of what could pass as either ham or corned beef.
I never saw any toast...

This was a place in the Quarter so I am not sure about this address.

I had breakfast for dinner and loved it. We ate at the french quarter location and had a great experience. Best food value in New Orleans. Our server was entertaining and very helpful. Cheap prices and excellent food!

Family had breakfast here. Leon and Frog were MORE than entertaining and friendly. My omelet was SO big I could only eat half of it. Grits here are AMAZING. Great value, great fun, great food. Meet new people and never feel lonely or a stranger. A MUST stop in New Orleans.

This is a must visit while in New Orleans, not only because it is a local institution, but it actually does have really great food. This is an old school style diner with burgers, breakfast, shakes, etc. Very old school type place- walk in and step back in time. It can be extremely busy, with a line out the door at breakfast and lunch times. We went early evening and walked right in and sat down. Service is very fast and it is honestly amazing how they get everyone's order right. They do expect for you to pay and leave as soon as you are done eating, so this is not a leisurely meal. Try the mushroom swiss burger and a chocolate cherry freeze. Yum! Very close to Loyola and Tulane Universities, with a lot of cool stuff to do around it.
