The panini breakfast sandwich was delicious. I also ordered cheese grits and iced coffee that was great. Finished off with a few bites of a doughnut that was too rich for my son to finish.

Another Bywater jewel. My wife found out about this place and we decided to try it out for brunch. I love the ambiance of this place and the neighborhood is beautiful and lively so we decided to sit outside. I ordered the Catfish and Grits...More

Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward,
the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely
residential. Of course, folks around here love to go
out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere
in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the
festivities, well then so much the better! Home to
some of the most revered live music venues in New
Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining

I would also say 10 is a large group and it would be hit or miss on everyone being seated together. You should call them.
Breakfast but no shrimp and grits when we come?

Unfortunately, I don't recall whether that read on the menu. Perhaps look online.
