AAA Inspector Notes
The upscale but welcoming café offers a tempting array of contemporary Cajun and Creole dishes. Brunch is offered on Saturday and Sunday with live jazz music. The standard menu, also available at lunch, ranges from seafood and filet mignon to catfish and rabbit. Dining here is an experience, as every detail is attended to—like warm cream for coffee and bread that's replaced before it gets cold. This restaurant is consistently rated among the best in New Orleans, for good reason. Features include an iron staircase and vintage tile floors. Diners enjoy a view of the kitchen or can take advantage of sidewalk seating. Keep in mind, this seating fills up fast. A limited menu is available between the hours of lunch and dinner. The "Five After Five" menu allows diners to sample a variety of plates. A gluten-free menu is also available.
