The location of Cafe Pontalba is fun. You get to people watch those around Jackson Square. I had a shrimp po boy. It was good. It wasn't great; it wasn't terrible. It was a satisfying sandwich. My husband enjoyed his salad, which also wasn't great or terrible. The cafe is in the oldest apartment building in the United States. The open-air location (it was warm enough the windows were open - not outside dining) was really nice and made us feel a part of the area around. I wouldn't say this is a must-eat-at place, but I wouldn't summarily dismiss it, either.
