    Anything is good here. I like sticking to the Louisiana classics, however: Shrimp & Grits, Beignets, Jambalaya, etc. Be sure to write your name on the chalkboard (located inside by the register)!

    The Shrimp & Grits are really good. Don't leave without trying the beignets. Also, taste the homemade jam—try eating it with the sweet beignets or with bread.

    We came here on a Sunday morning. It was pretty packed and we had to wait a bit to get in but it was worth it! I had the French toast with the butter pecan sauce which was to die for!!

    Come here for some eggs Benedict and I tried the pulled pork one. Potato hash was terrible and without seasoning and the eggs and pork we're ok besides the spicy flavors.

    The beignets are the best in town. As well as their grits. Make sure you arrive early so you're not left waiting too long. The sign up board is inside.

    Best mac and cheese in the world. Crawfish beignets, cole slaw, fries, sandwiches, and bread pudding with bourbon sauce were all awesome.

    The hostess was rude. Sandwich with different hams only tasted like pickles and olives. Omelette with shrimp and goat cheese: the shrimp was tasteless because it's just cooked in water with no salt.

    The beignet is a must have for sure! The DYO omelette is really good - my suggestion : caramelized onions, mushrooms & spinach!

    Line is long but you gotta time it perfectly so that you can grab yourself a Philz coffee walk around a little bit and come back. Shrimp and grits was my favorite along with the crawfish beignet 😋
