I had read great online reviews and had to try this place. We waited for nearly 2 hours for a breakfast table. The place is so small. But, the brunch was really good. The service was also good and the staff were extremely friendly.

We had a great selection of good menu items and ate very well at Eat. However, they charge corkage on every bottle of wine after the first, which seemed excessive since we were a large group. It was otherwise very reasonable. The waiter was very nice and helpful. We left happy and full.

A very good local restaurant. Small and comfortable. Food was very good. Great the first time so we went back.

We found this little restaurant in New Orleans over the Memorial Day Weekend and what a find it was!! The fried green tomatoes toped with shrimp, oh, my!! Everything from the service to the food was wonderful and we will be back! One thing- they do not serve alcohol, but you are invited to bring your bottle of wine, or bottle of whatever you would like to have along with your meal and they will have the chilled glass waiting for you! Enjoy this fine restaurant!!

In an old house a block off of Boubon, this restaurant is quite small. Probably only 20 tables and no where to wait inside. For that reason, everyone finds a place to lean or sit on the street. The Cathedral Academy across the street also has shaded steps to sit on and wait.
Once you are inside, order the banana fritters first as it takes a while to prepare. They are crispy fried banana bread type fritters with powdered sugar on top that come with a side of melted peanut butter- yum! For brunch, we had the fried green tomato and egg breakfast. The fried green tomatoes were fabulous and the sundried tomato remoulade was fabulous for dipping. The grits were creamy and so flavorful, i did not add anything. Biscuits were huge and very warm. My husband had the entree with the country ham which he said was terrific. Remember to bring your own bottle of champagne for mimosas as they do not serve alcohol. But, they do not charge a corkage on your first bottle, so it's a deal!
