Visited this breakfast spot while in NOLA for the Essence Festival and like everywhere else they had long lines. the restaurant is very small for the lines of people that it draws which makes for a very TIGHT seating arrangement.
For breakfast I ordered the big easy because it gave more of a variety for a first timer (Pancakes, sausage, bacon, hash brown or grits, 2 eggs and toast). The pancakes come with powdered sugar dusting which I didnt care for and was not easy to get them to leave off I guess because it was a habit for them to dust every plate! The food itself was very good as well as the potion sizing.
During our visit it was difficult for us to get seating, silverware and drinks because thay ran out of alot of things due to the big crowd.
My experienece Im sure wouldve been better outside of the touristy time of year the essence festival occurs. Hopefully, they are more prepared for crowds like this in the future.

We dropped in for breakfast. Interesting breakfast menu, good coffee, and delightful pleasant and helpful service. Kitchen was not entirely competent nor eager to do things right. I had to send my bacon back as it was underdone and he just dropped it into the deep fryer. Eggs were cooked on too hot a grill. Omelette came with jalopeno cheese - not on the menu. The cook's hostility at being asked to cook the items as ordered was palpable.

Cozy breakfast place with awesome wait staff. My husband had a bloody mary and he said it was great. We both enjoyed our meals.

Probably one of the better places to eat breakfast. Quick, good and fairly reasonable prices. Heard it just changed ownership and was wondering if still good. Bacon still second to none.
