A pleasant surprise tucked away. Unassuming diner with the greatest pancakes I've ever had. A definite "must have".

Its good. My wife liked the stuffed pancakes. Too big of portions for my taste. Got seated fast for breakfast and served quickly. Its an ok place for me and would go again.

I love a good mom n pop type. Food was tasty and perfect price. No kids menu though, otherwise I'd have given 5 stars.

I red previous reviews but turned out not to be the best choice. Food was mediocre, service was limited. Tables and seats were sticky. Will not be going back. There should be good strong coffee at all New Orleans restaurants not weak see through coffee. Very disappointing

Very friendly staff. Food was great and I plan to return for breakfast. Had the "bottom of the bowl "and it was great for my first taste of new Orleans food.

My last trip to New Orleans, I tried crawdads, This time I thought that I would try gumbo, and I'm glad that I did When I placed my order with the very friendly server, I was asked if I wanted a cup, or a bowl. This was my dinner, so I ordered a bowl. When it arrived, I was amazed... More

Wow. Wow. Wow. The exterior looks like this will be a regular breakfast joint. There is nothing regular or normal about this place. The pancakes are GINORMOUS and DELICIOUS!!! I also had the Cajun hashbrowns with shrimp and andoullie sausage and ohhhhhhh emmm gee it was GOOD!

Got a sweet tooth for a MONSTER pan-cake?? Gotta go to CIT DINER right off the Service rd by I-10 in Metairie. Lotsa servers and cooks means you get your fab pancakes KWIK. HUUUGE pancakes with add-ons and a pizza box for the leftovers. No kidding!

Thank Stew S
