Our group likes to start the day with great food and coffee. The Cake Cafe hit the mark every morning we stayed in NOLA. The menu offers a nice variety of dishes. We also picked up a birthday cake.

The pastrami sandwich is incredible! We went back and had breakfast in the morning and had biscuits and roasted vegetable omelet that was incredible! Everything is amazing.

Cake Cafe in New Orleans Bywater is a must taste. Wide assortment of menu, breakfast and lunch options. Try the crab meat omelette. But save room for the red velvet cupcake. Best cupcakes I’ve had!

Start your day at this unique little restaurant with their breakfast menu. Then get a sandwich to go for lunch and top it all off with one of their delicious baked goods. All made on the premises.

Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward,
the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely
residential. Of course, folks around here love to go
out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere
in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the
festivities, well then so much the better! Home to
some of the most revered live music venues in New
Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining

I would also say 10 is a large group and it would be hit or miss on everyone being seated together. You should call them.

Unfortunately, I don't recall whether that read on the menu. Perhaps look online.
