The breakfast was so good, there was so much food, no one was able to finish. The beignet sticks were amazing and they had great coffee, which is always a plus. The waitress cut up and joked around which made the meal more enjoyable. All...More

The waitress was very nice and helpful but the food was not hot and not particularly good. There was hardly anybody in there, as we were in a between meals time, so there was no excuse for child food.

Good solid American / Cajun food with great service. Nothing extraordinary, but all really good. So much to choose from in NOLA! Love this city!

We ate lunch there several times during our stay. Dionte was our server and she was very good. Answered lots of questions and was attentive. Muffaletta was very good. Portions are huge and most of us shared. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

The restaurant does not take reservations. I do not remember if it is open. Probably not. But many other restaurants are open. Try Palace Cafe.
