    They did a nice job of allowing me to mix and match from the printed and special menus. Crawfish cakes were excellent.

    Best meal I've had in New Orleans so far! Get the fried oyster and shrim poboy or the 3 little pigs sandwich, they're both dope. Their Oreo pancakes are great too!

    If you are in New Orleans this is a must for breakfast, beyond amazing order the Cochan Benedict or the peach French toast 😍

  • Donna B.

    We had buttermilk pancakes and a western omelet both were scrumptious and our waiter was wonderful. The place was small though and had about a 15 minutes wait to get in but it was Red Dress Run day

    The cochon eggs benedict was one of the best I've ever had. The potatoes were perfectly crispy on the outside and fluffy inside.

  • Matthew G.

    Red beans and rice has a great flavor, but it's pretty salty. Service is basically non-existent, so be aggressive if you want more than one glass of whatever you're drinking.

    Matthew Gordon · July 15, 2015
  • Jeff S.

    Biscuits and gravy are the best I've ever had! The Cochon Burrito is unique and fantastic as well.

    Pray they don't forget they sat you and then ignore you. Also if they're gonna talk about you, they might wanna use quieter voices.
