As someone who must eat gluten free for health reasons, visiting New Orleans proved to be more challenging than expected- very few restaurants offer GF options or even know about celiac. I had submitted to the idea that I would have to leave New Orleans...More

Meals from the heart is a casual option and perfect as well if you travel on your own. Had the vegan gumbo and the iced coffee with almond milk and loved both of them (even as a normally not vegan eater)

Excellent crab cake tacos and other healthy offerings. Very reasonable price for a quick healthy meal. Walk up location with about six seats, plus extra outdoor tables nearby. Very friendly vibe. We aren't gluten free or vegetarian, and we'd still go back in a heartbeat!

around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

They have a power shake that they offer that has almond milk in it so I know they do carry almond milk.
