This is a cool place. Not fancy, but clean and enjoyable atmosphere. I have eaten here for lunch and it gets pretty busy at noon due to the office workers nearby. The staff is very friendly. It is buffet style and seat yourself. The food is home style soul food with lots of menu options. The brownies and chess bars... More

I was early for a meeting so stopped in for coffee and kill some time. The lunch items were just coming out and I couldn't resist! Great home cooked items as well as sandwiches and a breakfast menu for everyone. The coffee was excellent and she even went to the kitchen to get flavored cream for me. Clean, great service... More

On the surface this looks like a good place. But.... It never seems to live up to the expectations. You get a decent amount of food but it just isn't very good. I have given this place about 5 second chances just because it's in the same building as my office. Think this was my last!

I almost passed out when our breakfast was $8. We had a breakfast sandwich, coffee, milk and a HUGE homemade banana nut muffin. All was very good and the ladies there were great! Walking distance from Hyatt Regency and Hyatt House.

If your looking for that "A" typical local eatery this is one of the best. Nothing special, vinyl plastic table cloths, order cafeteria style but what you do get is good home cooked food and a lot of it! The Special's tell it all. Local fried chicken, catfish, sausage and red beans galore! All the great southern side dishes to... More

A good standard sandwich shop also serves breakfast and coffee to go on this busy street in the Central Business District.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
