WONDERFUL food, great service in a relaxed casual atmoshphere. Try the shrimp and grits!! Weekends can be busy, you may have to wait but it's worth it. We went on a Friday and the place was busy. Owner is on premise and hands on.

Four of us went for a birthday brunch to this small, cheerful cafe. From the door hung with Mardi Gras beads to the chicory coffee to the music on the sound system this place celebrates New Orleans' culture. We chose crawfish etouffee from the specials board, plus red beans and rice, "everything gumbo," and a crawfish omelette. We also tried fried catfish and brought home pecan pie for dessert. We liked everything -- the catfish was particularly light and tender. The greatest difficulty was choosing what to eat -- we passed up root beer floats made with organic ice cream. We did not try the shrimp and grits or the chicken and waffles. We saw someone else with the largest po' boy we have ever seen. The staff were friendly and helpful and got more so as the meal went on and we were clearly enjoying ourselves and the food. We will go back.

Food: always good and generous portions. There’s standard American b-fast but the fun part is the Louisiana style items, like Alligator omelet! I dare you!
Service: The owner is usually there, very sweet and cares a lot about happy customers.
The ambiance: Mardi-Graz and rad music.
Heads up: may be a wait list on busy weekend days

Everything is super fresh and delicious, the music is killer and the service is friendly. "Be nice or leave!" We love this place and are here often! Everything from the Huevos Rancheros and Fried Chicken and Waffles (YES!) to the Po Boys (try the Peacekeeper!), Shrimp and Grits and Gumbo is authentic and tasty. You will not leave hungry! Cash only.
