Nice coffee shop and fast casual restaurant. Try the cafe au lait with an order of beignets! Their po boys (especially the breakfast ones) are a worthy nod to the New Orleans offerings. Specialty sandwiches and soups are listed on the boards. A fairly recent...More

Food is delicious. Service is courteous. Atmosphere is causal. Prices are reasonable. And, best of all, every dish, dessert, and drink on the menu is delicious! It's always hard to choose!

Went for lunch and food was really good but sat by the windows and they were filthy plus the sills looked like they hadn’t been cleaned in months.

Excellent crawfish Mac-n-cheese and nice selection of craft beers on tap. Location had a coffee house feel complete with 10-15 loitering, MacBook using free loaders. I suppose that’s what they’re going for but the vibe was very Schizophrenic. Coffee house, Cajun restaurant, pub. I’ll definitely...More

I know that Chicory Cafe had applied for a liquor license but I don't think they have it yet.
