“The best sandwich ever!”
Reviewed March 31, 2010

While visiting New Orleans we heard we had to try the muffuletta. So glad we did, it was the best sandwich ever. We split one sandwich which was plenty! The sandwich is served warm as it's baked and the olive spread is amazing. We sat outside and listened to the live jazz music and our server was very attentive. For dessert we had the Bread Pudding with Rum sauce as we heard that's local tradition too - it was soooo yummy!! Can't wait to go back for another vacation!

“two words. tourisr trap. the po boy i...”
Reviewed March 31, 2010

two words. tourisr trap. the po boy i tasted was ok...but just so u know..its fairly impossible to mess up a po boy... the crawfish pastry..worst i ever had.. there was a roach in the cold gumbo... but since the owner decided i ate half before i noticed the dead bug..charged me full price.. when i refused to pay for it ..he called the police..and then refused my credit card..so i couldnt dispute charges... ALSO..DO NOT GET THE BOILED CRAWFISH.. most were dead before cooked.. if u are experienced in shell fish and cajun food for that matter...you will hate this place......the french market directly across the street was great..i loved it..

“Try out their Louisiana Lemonades.”
Reviewed March 21, 2010

We've eaten breakfast and lunch there and enjoyed it all. Everyone is very nice and always around to help with all your needs. The last few trips took us through to the bar. Let me just say that you can only drink a couple Louisiana lemonades before feeling a little giddy. The same bartender had been there both times. He's very helpful when it comes to sights to see and shops to visit. We enjoy this place very much and will not hesitate to go back.

“Market Cafe for all you can eat breakfast at a reasonable price.”
Reviewed January 20, 2010

My wife and I just had the Market Cafe's Sunday Brunch/Buffet. We were greated outside by a lovely lady who doesn't just stand outside to get you in their door, but also seats you and takes your order. She was attentive, friendly and helpfull. The Buffett was your typical eggs, bacon, gravy, but the availability and quality of the buffett was outstanding. And for only $8.99 and a large oj for only $2 was what we thought was a bargain. The atmosphre is a bit cramped inside, but that makes up for the ambiance. I would highly recomend this place for a quick bite to eat and is right in the middle of the french market. I believe their breakfast buffett is everymorning even though we had it on Sunday. They have a sign in neon that lights up to tell you the buffett is on.
