I met up with friends and went for second breakfast. The pastries are heavenly. I had a enormous cinnamon bun, my sister had a hummingbird large cupcake. The raspberry tea was great. The staff was very friendly and helpful. And you can add a cupcake to your meal for $1! It's a little out of the way, but worth the walk!

We walked to Cake from Frenchmen Street, 4 or 5 blocks of rough sidewalks but not impossible. I enjoyed my salmon and eggs; hubby liked his soup and club sandwich. Their excellent bread and good biscuits enhance the rest of the meal. FYI, my husband commented that the menu had lots of the kinds of food that I would order but not many of his favorites, and I did notice that nearly all the customers were women.

Been here many times. We stay at a B&B across the street and always come over here. Food is freshly made, fresh squeezed OJ, staff is very nice. There is always a line but it moves quickly. I finally tried a cupcake this year!

The food was delicious and the staff very friendly. The french toast made with challah and the orange-pecan syrup was excellent. Don't forget to purchase a cupcake with your meal. Just $1.00. You will not be disappointed.

This place is a GEM! The staff is genuinely friendly and the food is over the moon! Staff will explain any questions you have about the menu and offer suggestions. Lots of local flare and food choices! The biscuits and the Red Velvet cupcakes are a must with each meal! and you get a cupcake for $1 with your meal. Small location so you may have to wait but the staff does a great job of seating you and taking your order, SUPER EFFICIENT! Will definitely visit on my next NOLA trip!
