    Great old school greasy spoon dinner with incredible staff. Order eggs and don't miss the waffle. Make sure to ask for the pour butter and syrup.

    First time and I must say the bacon egg omelette, hash browns, and pancakes were rather delicious. New Orleans has been good to me. I would recommend this place to fellow tourists.

    Late night breakfast: Camellia Grill is a late night dive. You get everything from an omelet to the really greasy top grill burger at that time of night.

    Great breakfast spot, but get here early and don't be upset about a wait. Bad for parties of more than two if you're in a hurry. Seating is limited, but turns quickly.
