I am a big fan of breakfast for lunch and at LaLou you can get just that great omelets, and what the others in my party ordered looked fantastic as well. There are picnic tables outside as well as indoor seating. The restaurant is only a couple of blocks from the lakefront, so you can walk after lunch or just... More

I've been to this restaurant for breakfast twice - the food is delicious, the service is great, and the coffee cup is bottomless! I ordered things I don't make at home - stuffed brioche French toast (not for the faint of heart!) and ricotta pancakes. Both were delicious! Everyone at our table loved what they ordered - Belgian waffle, blue... More

LaLu is not a new restaurant, it has just change its name. The blue point crab Benedict and the shrimp and grits were still as great as always. It is in a shotgun house in a historic neighborhood. No strip mall fumes to deal with, if the weather is good eat outside. Take your bike on the Tammany Trace up... More

Outdoor & indoor dining in a turn of the 19th century house typical of the northshore of Lake Pontchartrain. Located literally across the street from the lake. Generous portions of good food, and goodservice. Moderate pricing. Lots of breakfast options.

What a nice find. Although the place has been around for some time, we haven't. New to the area, we stopped in today for a wonderful lunch. Had the best shrimp and grits I've ever eaten. Wife had a chicken and quinoa salad that she said was really good. Put the nice food together with friendly service and a funky... More

Started with coffee was ok but there again you could seal the seams in a leaky boat with the stuff I make. I had the Covington omelet which is sausage, crisp baked bacon, onions & mushroom omelet is topped with cheddar cheese and served with country potatoes, English muffin and fruit slice garnish. I added a little salt and pepper... More

Always great food served with friendly service at a wonderful place. Don't miss out on this spot! The omelettes are amazing but there's so much more to offer as well.

Came New Years Day early enough not to wait too long for table. Good coffee. Standard Eggs Benedict was delist and the eggs Benedict over tamales was a great spin on Benedict. Will definitely be back.
