Our hotel didn't include breakfast so we looked for popular spots to eat. The portions were big and reasonably priced. The French toast is absolutely delicious. The chicken steak wasn't my favorite. I found it had too much batter and the gravy was too thick...More

While visiting the Garden District stumbled upon this fine restaurant The lunch special Chicken Cordon Bleau was delicious. It was large enough for two. The gumbo was good but not the best we enjoyed this week

A very low key and basic breakfast lunch cafe, with welcoming and friendly service, good food and a nice bit of local specialties. The seafood gumbo was wonderfully flavorful, but was served quite cold. The shrimp po-boy had wonderful bread and tasty and plentiful shrimp....More

Friendly staff, could be more attentive to details, as it was slow. Chicken Fried Steak was perfect, PoBoy, not so much. (There are many versions of this sandwich, wish it could have listed what it had in it, as we would have ordered differently. The...More
