“WOW!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

Wow! What a meal. We had a chili cheese omelet, the special omelet and a ham and cheese omelet. All three were great, huge and fluffy eggs. And a great value for $30 including toast and beverages. It was worth the wait. Enjoy the streetcar ride and go to the one at the riverbend. Great diner atmosphere with an engaging staff.

“Amazing Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

First trip to Camelia Grill was the first time I came to New Orleans! Very entertaining, great service, original experience. So much food, not all that healthy if that is what you are looking for but it's awesome and a true southern experience. I have never had such a good omlette in my life! Highly recommend going here! The newer location in the French Quarter is just as good!

“Great food, friendly service, historic location.”

If you like great cheap food and lots of it then go to Camellia Grill. The "chefs special" omelette is outrageous...

“a local gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

sitting at a marble counter that snakes around the casual cafe, you see the cooks, food, and workings of the restaurant. the staff make you feel at home with their lively chatter and the comfort food. we had po-boys, red beans & rice, omelettes, and milkshakes. we'll be back again for sure!

“BEST OMELETTE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

I went there and had a cherry chocolate shake and the best omelette I've ever had in my entire life. It is now one of my favorite restaurants.
