Fabled institution for diner fare dished out by bow-tied servers, plus late-night dining.- Google
"It's an old fashion diner where you sit at the counter and order diner food."
"Chef's Special Omelette."

I'm giving this place a two mostly because it is way over rated. The food comes in good portions, but its overpriced for the quality and service. I only come here when it is slow, its often packed on the weekends, and I just dont get why people love it. Its been here a while and the staff has always been the same, which is great, I just wish they worked a little harder on making the food flavorful. As it stands, its quite bland and run of the mill.

Visited Friday, March 20, 2015. First time visit via a recommendation. Frankly, I loved the place. It's loud, small with limited counter seating. The servers (dressed in white jackets with black bow ties) shout your order to the cooks. Sometimes the cooks argue with the servers because it's so much information to comprehend. In spite of the fun-loving arguing, it makes for an entertaining visit. They don't screw up the order either. Service was quick, the meal was very good and not overly priced. I'd definitely return when I visit New Orleans again.

Nice little diner in a very charming part of town. LOVE this place. They throw everything but the kitchen sink in their special omelet. Wonderful experience, nice walking to the street car afterwards......Truly a gem.

Chef's Special Omelette. Turkey, bacon, ham, potato & onions, American & Swiss cheese and then topped with chili and hash browns on the side. I have never had an omelette like this before and I have a feeling nothing will ever compare. The eggs were blended until they were so light that it tasted like waffle mix. I came with a few friends who recommended this place because every time they're in NOLA, they come here for breakfast and get the same thing. We waited for about 20 minutes, but mind you it's Mardis Gras season so everywhere decent will have a wait. We were quickly seated and the wait for he food didn't seem long at all since we got to watch the cook make every order. I could have sat and watched them make food all day. I didn't finish my omelette (it's gigantic) and I wrapped it up to take it home back to Jackson. It tasted exactly the same after I heat it up at home and all I wanted to do was go back to eat some more. Until next time Nola.

LOVED my experience here. Went at 11am on a Sunday morning so I was expecting to wait. They told us 15-20 minutes and we were seated and had our drinks by then. It's old and grungey and the best breakfast! I had the chefs omelette (they are huge!!!) exactly what I wanted on my trip to NOLA. The staff is extremely fast and friendly.. good eats and good times. Will definitely be back

Would've had a better time making a sandwich in my kitchen. My wife and I went there when we were on vacation. One of the cooks was making himself a waffle and ate it in front of us. Then another girl came in made some fries took half of it for herself and boxed the other half for a chili cheese fries for a customer. The cashier was on the phone on a personal call from the time we got there to the time we left. One of the other employees sat in a corner and was playing on the phone while the other cooks asked him to do something he just ignored them.

While in Louisiana, of course we had to have breakfast, well more like brunch for We found out about this place and decided to give it a try. Luckily this place was very easy to locate. However, we were almost discouraged because of the line to get in the place, but that meant to us that the food had to be good. So we decided to give it a try. The line to get in was not bad at all. We chuckled when we realized that once we made it into the place, that we had to have a seat and continue to wait. This didn't bother us at all, as it started pouring rain after we got inside, so we were happy about that. When we were finally seated, this place is more or a diner feel to eat, but the nevertheless, the server, Mickey, was excellent. It was impressive to watch and listen to him take and place 9 orders at one time by just shouting them out to the grillmaster, who got everything right. I ordered the pancakes with sausage, and eggs. The food was very good. My partner ordered an omelet with hashbrowns. I tasted some of his hashbrowns and let me tell you! he hashbrowns were great! They were some of the best hashbrowns I'd ever had. I wanted to order more food, but I decided against myself because I didn't want to get sleepy after brunch. This place is small but the service is very good. I definitely recommend this place for a breakfast/brunch spot when you go to New Orleans. I was also impressed that they actually stayed open late each night. Especially Friday and Saturday nights, until 2 a.m. If the breakfast food was any indication, I'm sure that the lunch and dinner are just as good, if not better. When you go to New Orleans, if you decide to eat at this place tell Mickey we all said hello and we will be seeing him again soon. Enjoy!
