I was super excited to visit Cake Cafe after trying The Ruby Slipper and Surrey’s Juice Bar on previous trips. The food was good, but NOTHING compared to the food at Surrey’s. It was just ok - nothing special. The boudin was good, but the...More

This corner cafe may be off the beaten path for some travelers but it is not to be missed. The food is delicious but, as the name suggests, you come for the cupcakes. We knew it was a neighborhood place that locals love and we...More

Fantastic breakfast here. Very friendly and quick service, even though busy. Tasty food AND you can order a King Cake to go. Can't go wrong with choice.

We went here for a light lunch and dessert since it was very close to the place we were staying. We had two of the vegetarian sandwiches, both of which were good, and then king cake and a cupcake that were good as well. The...More

We have had their cakes for several birthday parties and they are all and always delicious. The lemon cake is so moist and intensely flavored that we continue to re-order it but all are delicious. The service is also outstanding!

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.
