We go to Mona's often for an inexpensive and really good salad which can be had with gyro or various other marinated meats. Mona's serves traditional Middle Eastern dishes like falafel, stuffed grape leaves, kabobs, and tabouli. This is a great place to go if you want to take a break from the heavy traditional New Orleans fare and there is the option of eating outside when the weather permits.

when we moved to the city, we heard about Monas. We finally tried it and for years made it a point to go twice. Month.

Mona's Cafe located at 504 Frenchman Street is one of the few restaurants in New Orleans that serve one of my favourite meals namely an authentic Lebanese Shawarma. At only $10.99 this is excellent value for money, served with Hummus, Salad and Pita bread,and french (home) fries. Their Lamb Shish Kebab starter really compliments the main Shawarma meal and bring backs fond memories of my time in the Middle East. The decor of the restaurant is more down to earth but very functional giving an air of a little bit of Lebanon, service is excellent and staff extremely friendly.

Mona's (on banks) has a very pleasant atmosphere with outdoor covered seating available. The falafels are great. Their lebanese ice tea is really good. This is my go to place for consistent vegetarian fare. (But I know their gyro and shawarmas are good too.)
