Last day in NOLA, we decided to hit up Jimmy J's for breakfast. Super cute place. Small and just perfect. The cucumber mojito is amazing. We ordered the Breakfast Burrito and the Tuscan Eggs. Burrito was a hit and the Tuscan eggs were also delicious...More

I'm vegetarian and thought it would be difficult finding options in New Orleans. I stumbled upon this little gem with no regrets! I had the grilled eggplant sandwich and let me tell you, it was delicious!! Full of flavor. This restaurant is a must try!!

This place was wonderful. Very small dining room and there may be a wait for it because of that. The staff was amazing. The food was great. I would go back in an instant.

There was quite a wait but it was well worth it! I had the meat omelet with potatoes. The crown jewel of the meal was the biscuits and gravy! Amazing!

This place is a decent price with some good food. Just expect sandwiches and that kind of thing but it is absolutely great for lunch!

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
