This experience was everything I'd hoped for and more. The food was absolutely delicious. Drinks were made to help you wake up in New Orleans, with awesome options for the kids. Highly recommend "On da Bayou" and the cannoli pancakes. The atmosphere is quaint, but really fun with a real "homey" ambiance. As if you're eating breakfast at your mom's table. The restaurant space is limited so I recommend making a reservation beforehand. Phenomenal service. Food is quick, but you'll want to savor every bite so take your time and enjoy.

This restaurant is amazing. My fiancé and I ate there for bunch one day and loved it so much we brought the rest of our family back the next day! Best meatballs I’ve ever had and lots of the decor is homemade which is so cute. I wish I lived in New Orleans so I could eat here more!

Meatballs are a must try. Quaint joint which is family run.
After dining for brunch there we decided to take an order of meatballs for our son. They charged $.75 for takeout which was a cheap shot in our opinion .
Otherwise a must visit among other gems in this food city.

I hate to leave a bad review for anyone's bread and butter, but this establishment went above and beyond to make our dining experience very awkward and unpleasant from the day before our arrival. We made to separate reservations since our group was supposed to be 7 which could not be accommodated via Open Table. I had immediately contacted the restaurant to let them know and was told that they would make note of the reservations and try to accommodate our requests to sit together or nearby. The day before the reservation we received a nasty call from Rosemary (owner) threatening that the reservations could not be seated together and that we had a reservation for 8 not 7 and needed to show up! Our group of 7 ended up being 6 due to an illness but we showed up. Our server was gracious and nice and gave great recommendations from the menu. The very "busy" restaurant which could not guarantee us sitting together had a total of 10 people including our group and was otherwise empty! We enjoyed out meal and yes great meatballs, but as we were leaving and using the bathrooms said loud conversation for all to hear from Rosemary to server: So did that group of 7 ever show up this morning?( A quick look around and interest in your guests would have answered that question for you) Server: Yes they are just finishing up but they were 6. Rosemary rants and raves how she has to pay for said 7 people and how that's not right. Dear Rosemary, whatever the situation, one must learn to handle such upsets in the restaurant and hospitality business with grace and tact. Service always goes much further than good food! I immediately cancelled our next reservation with them for 3 days later and happily booked brunch elsewhere.

Drove 8 hours and from another state for this to be our first destination on my husband's birthday. We had an unexpected tire blow on the highway making us 10 minutes late. Complete accident and completely understand that our table had to be given up due to us being more than 5 minutes late. However the way I was talked to over the phone by the hostess was very rude, unacceptable, unnecessary and most of all UNPROFESSIONAL. By the way I was so rudely disrespectfully talked to we would have completely not gone but I would have been charged $25 for the reservation so we decided to still go and try this place out. Then I was reassured the day before that my husband's birthday would be recognized and was a surprise. Not the case at all, the server didn't acknowledge the special occasion at all. I didn't expect much just a birthday recognition, correct order and friendly staff. However I didn't expect to be treated with such disrespect from the hostess. Our waiter also got our order wrong and even missed items we ordered never receiving them. By the time we finally got some of our food we didn't have time to correct the situation and just wanted to leave. My husband and I both agreed we will never go back or recommend this place to anyone. Nothing that great about it, looks neat inside. We ate at better places in the same area for the same prices and neat decor.

Disappointing! I had researched gluten free restaurants before my trip and read it was amazing for gluten free food! When we arrived the menu was very confusing mixing entrees with desserts and antipasto. There were only 2 things gluten free I could order. They did not carry half the things I read about in prior reviews. When I asked about exchanging sauces on a pasta, we were told no. When we asked for a side of something, and would pay extra for it, we were told no, that they wouldn't have enough for later?? Really? We're a paying customer. It only got worse from here. We asked for a pasta dish with sauce on the side, we were told no. At this point the chef came out and asked what our problem was? I was floored! She explained she wouldn't serve something that way, ummm hello, we were ordering it! We had people in our party with allergies and were told they'd accommodate, they lied. She was rude and refused to make any accommodations. If our other orders in our party weren't already placed and coming out, we would have left. And of course gratuity was added in already in our check. ( not that it was the server's fault) I do have to note our server wasn't rude, just trying to make us happy but obviously was being yelled at by the chef simultaneously. The only saving grace was the food, itself, was very good. Not what we exactly wanted to order, but it was good and I wasn't glutened! The portions were very small for the price. Not worth it!

A great new find for us that will be a must stop in the future for brunch. Reservations a must for brunch. The menu is nearly overwhelming, with all six of us having difficulty in making a selection. Our waiter, Patrick, was excellent, attentive, and quick to make suggestions. There were no misses on any of our choices. Don't miss it!

Food: skillet cake and waffle, both orders incorrect. Waffle and fruit came out as pecan waffle, skillet cake was ordered without peanut butter but came with. Taste and quality for $18 “pancake” not on par with other breakfast options in area. Maybe would give 2nd visit if in area again, but not up to expectations.
