I definitely enjoyed eating here. At first we were going to eat at Lebanon's but they weren't serving gyros only gyro plates so I'm glad we decided to come here. We were the only customers at the time but that was okay. The inside is beautiful murals and middle eastern paintings from local N.O. artists. The gyros do not cost... More

The portions were quite large and reasonable prices. We ordered the hummus for an app which was both creamy and delicious! I ordered the chicken swarma salad which was huge, I only finished half the salad. My husband ordered the combo salad which he said was very tasty. The chicken was seasoned well and was still moist. We will definitely... More

We have been eating at this little neighborhood cafe on Maple Street in the Riverbend for about 20 years. We come and go from NOLA but the Babylon is always here. It's a good place to go for a delicious, casual meal. Sidewalk seating.

It's no secret that I love Mediterranean food and I am slowly trying every Mediterranean restaurant in the New Orleans area. I stopped into Babylon Cafe for dinner and it was a fairly slow night. This is a "no frills" type of place, hence the "cafe" title, but I like the murals on the wall and the staff is friendly.... More

Babylon Cafe is a small restaurant on Maple Street where locals go for great Mediterranean food. The Falafel is outstanding they have beer and wine available. The salads are large, the chicken tikka is fantastic moist and flavorful. The salmon was great and cooked perfectly.

Great food but very slow, unhelpful staff. Be prepared for loads of flies if you choose to sit outside! The rose tea is wonderfully refreshing and amount of food is HUGE!

This place is a real gem. Best Mediterranean food I have had in Nola. All from scratch. They even roast the beans for the Turkish coffee. Lamb was awesome!!

We have been eating at Babylon Café for years, both lunch and dinner. Throughout that time, our food has been consistently delicious. Whether it be appetizer plates, sandwiches, salad, lentil soup or any of the vast array of entrees, baklava, tea, or any combination, you can count on wonderful portions, very fresh tasting food, and a surprisingly low bill.

During our recent visit to the area we wanted something other than creole or cajun food. We were very pleased that we chose Babylon Cafe for our dinner one evening. The Middle-Eastern food was authentic, delicious, and reasonably priced. Service was good and the interior is decorated with beautiful wall murals. We observed many people coming in for take-out also.... More

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighbourhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
