I make it a point to eat at Market Cafe every time I come to New Orleans. I love sitting outside and listening to the live jazz band. The food could be better, but you can't beat the atmosphere!

We stopped by around 9PM on a Saturday because of the live music. There were 3 of us. Service was very fast. For our appetizers we had the alligator bites and popcorn crawfish. They were both outstanding. The remoloude sauce was to die for! Good...More

The service was great! My waiter was the best....however we did not enjoy the food. The food was over priced. Also the food was not good. We were disappointed with the food. The drinks were ok but priced well.

I've come to New Orleans twice over the past 2 years and have eaten my first New Orleans meal at this restaurant for the breakfast buffet. There's live music, breakfast goes until 1pm, drinks are cheap, and the food is delicious!

I was disappointed in my experience here. I paid $22 with tip for my below average poboy sandwich. One of the waiters actually told someone in our group that they didn't want to keep refilling their beverages. The live music was nice.

Stopped here for a quick bite on our way to the market. Good live music, all food ordered was tasty. Especially the gyro.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living

across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
