We stumbled upon this little gem while visiting the Garden District. Great food! Everything was delicious! My frozen margarita really hit the spot on a warm day. Our server, Sara, was delightful. I’d highly recommend this place if you’re in the area.

Head to the Garden District for the full-on New
Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking
streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions,
picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded
down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful
churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a
brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the
Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give
