Suck an incredible spot that's tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the French Quarter on Frenchman and Toure.

We really enjoyed our meal here. We went early, and I highly recommend an early visit before those who had a little too much to drink go out for breakfast at 11. I ordered the BBQ shrimp & grits which seemed pricey at $16 but had a tremendous taste plus a bonus side of a biscuit with praline butter. It's... More

Went for breakfast and from the moment we stepped in we were treated like an old friend. Large menu . Food was good which is why 4 not 5 star but service would be 5+ stars

So glad we visited for breakfast! Awesome... I had the banana and raisin French toast and my boyfriend had the batons. Absolutely enormous portions, we had to take some away with us. But it was so delicious. Enjoyed every mouthful. This has to be THE breakfast place in New Orleans.

"Got in line" on No Wait app; definitely the way to go, as the line was crazy long, although would be worth the wait. Food was delicious! We'll be back, the next time we're in NOLA.

This was my second visit and it is consistently good but not a good value. The building is GREAT, the food is good, the neighborhood is marginal, and the service is always slow though pleasant. The bottom line is that you invest a lot of time and a chunk of money for a breakfast that you can get in any... More

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighbourhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
