We came here twice for breakfast during our stay in NOLA. It's quite the efficient little set-up they have so don't let lines deter you from going! We tried the chicken tacos, smoked beet sandwich, portabello mushroom sandwich and corn beef hash and they were...More

Cake Cafe doesn't serve you at all. So consider that when selecting the tip % on the iPad. It's almost second nature to hit 20 and then after you get up to go to the serving station 3x or while cleaning your dishes like at...More

There was a bit of a wait but it was absolutely worth it! They have great cupcakes that they sell at the counter and good vegetarian options for brunch! Everything we had was delicious, will definitely be back!

This is simply the best breakfast or brunch you'll ever eat. You should pass on the pricey restaurants in the Quarter or Uptown and instead, head to Cake! The atmosphere is homey and kind of funky at the same time. The baked items are so...More

Everything you eat here is amazing, one of a kind and to die for. This is a must stop for everyone at least once. A little off the beaten path but completely worth the Uber ride. Please come here.

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.
