Met a client at Hobnobber Cafe at her suggestion and had a very tasty shrimp plate with better than average potato salad. She had the shrimp salad. The prices were about average and quality and quantity were above average. I would visit again for sure. I had ice tea but drinks are available. Most customers seemed to be locals at... More

Cheap, fantastic food. Always great service. This is the real deal. Down home cooking at it's finest. If your looking for a funky spot with great food, this is it. We always make sure to stop in when we're in New Orleans. The crab cakes with baked mac and cheese are awesome. The cat fish is awesome.

We always have fine food at Hobnobber Cafe, our favorite family-owned neighborhood spot! Daily specials are offered, but the regular menu has many delicious selections, too. Dine in, or call ahead for pickup. You can't go wrong having lunch or dinner at Hobnobber Café. You can find us there at least one evening each week!

If you are looking for an awesome pancake, grits, and best cheesy potatoes - this is the place to go. Not much on atmosphere - or decorations. At home we call this a "hole in the wall" - if you can ignore the building and decorations - come here.

Stopped in here during a New Years stay in New Orleans. The batter on the seafood is excellent. Had both the shrimp as well as the catfish and both were seasoned and cooked to perfection. Great po-boys and platters.

Went here after we had driven into the area for a long weekend from Atlanta. The food was Ok, they gave us a good amount of food,but it was just OK. I got the crawfish nachos, and the chips were over cooked and the cheese was not very good, no other stuff on them except the meat, and cheese. I... More

This place is great. We took our youth group of 11 youth and 4 adults here and the people are great here. Very welcoming! The portions are huge and some people shared. Our youth asked to go back again after our first visit! We went here three time during our visit. Twice for breakfast and once for lunch. We were... More
