Stopped by to get a real King Cake on the first day of Mardi Gras and was thrilled to discover the gumbo. It was amazing! Roux was great and full of shrimp! Highly recommend a visit.

On a whim we stopped in to check it out. At first we were a bit disappointed because we thought it was more of a grocery store. But we decided to eat, and it was great fun. We tried unusual beverages and thought they were delicious. We had a crawfish tail roll (think lobster roll made with crawfish) that was perfection and a turkey sandwich that was much better than expected. There were so many tempting candies, beers, and other beverages that we promised ourselves that we will try to make this a regular stop so that we can sample many more of them. There are bagels from Brooklyn and lots of goodies from New Orleans, including Cajun meats, bread, and beer.

Good food on NOLA breads. Zapp's chips-perfect. Need Haydel hand pies for ultimate homesick meal. Good cooler selections with beers for every taste

What a cool place. We talked to the owner for a while. We were mostly enthralled by the selection of beers. He even had wine ice cream. Service was great, the selection was really good. The owner was from New Orleans so the menu had a lot of NOLA fare. We didn't eat but the food looked great. WE would go back again and eat. Lucky we found this place on a recent walk down University Ave.
