Nothing was particularly wrong with the restaurant but I didn't find the person who took our order at the counter very friendly and considering all of the fabulous dining options in NOLA, this is not one I would recommend.

A very convenient place to eat while visiting the NOMA. The food is fairly typical museum eats, sandwiches and salads. The restaurant was not very clean or picked up because of the many school children eating their lunch in the cafe. The servers tried their best but it wasn't a great dining experience for the adult visitors.

After a visit to NOMA with out of town friends, I stopped for a quick bite and had a great bowl of soup here.

I was starving after walking all morning and stopped for fortification in the museum before exploring. I was expecting some dreadful snack but was completely floored by the menu! The portabella mushroom sliders were absolutely fantastic! I have a new favorite tea, too! The decor is light and refreshing with views from large windows. The waitresses were helpful and sweet....

We had drinks, a quiche and chocolate chip cookie there for a light lunch. The quiche and cookie were fine, and so were the drinks. Nothing super memorable, but adequate. I somewhat expect museum food prices to be high, so these prices actually seemed decent. There were two women working there -- one making drinks (who was simply efficient and... More

When we were there is was very quite and calm, not a lot od people. The food was fresh and lite. Best ice tea I had food the entire trip. A little pricey but given the location I can understand why. Wonderful view out over the NOMA grounds.

I know I know. Hot chocolate in New Orleans?! It was cold in the museum and raining outside. It felt right and they made it from scratch. My wife loves it when they don't use a mix. We had soup, quiche, tea and hot chocolate to hold us over until dinner. Service was great, the prices were good and the... More

After a few hours of museum activity, the food options were excellent. I had a delicious cauliflower curry soup, but the salads and sandwiches looked good as well. Only downside: no sound buffer and no outside searing.

The food was delicious and the prices pretty much the norm for a good museum cafe. I had curried cauliflower soup & ½ Caesar w/shrimp followed by a really good chocolate chip cookie, with chicory coffee. Nice atmosphere.

The cafe is quite large, and the menu interesting. The wait staff are not particularly friendly, but it may be they are in character as grumpy wait staff from yesteryear! (I'm trying to be positive). The food is rather expensive, and certainly not good value - but the cafe is worth a stop to see the wait staff costumes, visit... More

Staying in Lakeview

Neighbourhood Profile
Lakeview extends inland from the shores of Lake Pontchartrain with much of the area reserved for family-friendly City Park. Home to the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, Carousel Gardens Amusement Park, and the city’s own lush Botanical Gardens, City Park is a New Orleans gem and the perfect spot for outdoor fun with as much of a mix of culture and/or amusement as you would like. Beyond City Park more great excuses to stay outside beckon, whether on land or by boat. Developed a good deal later than most other New Orleans neighborhoods, Lakeview has a distinctively different look and feel compared to other parts of the city. Fans of mid century modern design and contemporary architecture particularly enjoy leisurely drives around the residential streets of Lake Vista, Park Island and along Lakeshore Drive.
