This small diner has been serving patrons for nearly 50 years. It's longevity is a testimonial to their good food and hospitality. Food is ordered cafeteria style from the menu boards on the wall. Watch for the daily specials too! The entire staff is very friendly and helpful to new comers who aren't familiar with the set up. Red beans are excellent and the special comes with plenty of bread and a small salad. Add a piece of sausage for $1.50 and you got yourself a meal for $7.50.
The shrimp po boy had plenty of small shrimp and tasted good but were a bit rubbery. Seems that they precook a bunch and throw then in a chafing dish and use them as need be. Staff was very friendly and very attentive to refilling our drinks and clearing away our plates. They work hard so don't forget the put something in the tip jar.
Warning they are only open for breakfast and lunch and only on weekdays.

Just up Gravier from our hotel, this place was recommended by the bellmen at Wyndham, when we arrived and asked for a good place to eat. Kinda cafeteria style, you place your order with the ladies at a hot table of food. There's lots of variety and you can get a good hot breakfast or lunch at a fair price. We got poboy's, an oyster and a shrimp, dressed, (lettuce, tomato, mayo) on French rolls. Everything was fresh and fried perfectly. It's a small place and its was very busy at lunch with the surrounding business crowd, along with people like us who happen upon it. We liked it and would go again.

Great food and service! The waitress was so friendly and full of information for us since this was our first time in New Orleans. The breakfast was so good and rich with butter, bacon, eggs and grits! Yummmm! would definitely recommend breakfast here!

My shrimp po boy had so much shrimp they were rolling out all over. Delicious. My husband loved his chicken parmesan, corn, salad, and garlic bread. We were well satisfied and look forward to going again! Great food value - lots of tasty bang for your buck.
