“No better way to spend money on an authentic Nawlins meal!”
Reviewed July 23, 2013 via mobile

You will read several reviews on a myriad of places to dine during your stay in NOLA, but you will not have a more authentic and delicious meal. Compound this with the fact that your dollars go to support a very worthwhile cause-training at risk young people in the food and service industry, as they serve you and help prepare the very food you're eating-this is a must do!
The food is very tasty, and don't leave without having their award-winning Bananas Foster bread pudding!

“A Great Meal for a Great Cause”
Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

If you're looking for authentic soul food, this place serves up some of the best. The restaurant is staffed by inner city youth and is designed to teach entrepreneurial skills, so you may find service a tad overly exaggerated. But, everyone is trying so hard to be helpful that you can easily forgive the interruptions.

“Great service and great food”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

We were so impressed with the oysters the Cafe served at their booth at the Oyster Festival, we went to the Cafe for lunch. Their mashed sweet potatoes and desserts were delicious.

“Go...and tip big!”
Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

Great work being done here in a restaurant whose atmosphere, service and food rivals any we've had in NOLA during the last 20 years. If you love this city and it's people...don't miss Cafe Reconcile!

“Eat with a Purpose”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Cafe Reconcile is a place where young people in New Orleans, many at-risk, learn the restaurant trade so they can break the cycle of poverty and get jobs in NOLA's many fine eateries. They do a great job, the food is terrific and inexpensive. Go and do a good deed with the added benefit of eating well. Leave a big tip!
