Cute little place off the beaten path. Very small, hipster vibe. Varied menu selections, and cake! Staff was extremely nice, restaurant was clean, food was fresh, and desserts were great! Shrimp and grits was spot on!! Well worth the trip from the Quarter.

This is an OK neighborhood place. The area can be dicey after dark so pay attention. Like most such places the parking is limited and the meter maids are very active so plan ahead.

We found this cafe our last morning when we needed pastries for our drive. We so wish we had stopped here before. Absolutely delicious. Patrons eating full breakfasts looked very happy.

Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward,
the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely
residential. Of course, folks around here love to go
out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere
in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the
festivities, well then so much the better! Home to
some of the most revered live music venues in New
Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining

I would also say 10 is a large group and it would be hit or miss on everyone being seated together. You should call them.
