Something for everyone here. Beignets are popular with our younger daughter, while our older daughter prefers the Pain Perdou (to die for, and I’m not a French toast person). My husband tried the blackened salmon benedict and the breakfast poboy on his next visit. Coffee...More

Had the crawfish bisque, a chicken po boy, and the spicy fries. The food was amazing. The chicken and cheese po boy had a perfect amount of spice and was fantastic. I also had the authentic Café du Monde café au lait and beignets. Fantastic...More

We always come when soft shell crabs are in season, because my wife loves them here. Reasonably priced po'boy. I had 1/2 fried oyster and shrimp po'boy--also pretty good. Beer prices are very good. Service good.

Small, quaint, "Louisiana music" playing.....don't even know where to start on the food. We couldn't decide so we tried several things 😂 Crab balls are incredible and moist! Crab egg rolls are perfectly crisp on the outside with a "dirty rice" flavor to the crab...More
