When I travel I tried to find somewhere that the locals hangout something simple breakfast is not over priced and this is the place. The small town diner in a big city. Western Omelet was $7.75. I'd stop in again.

A rotating list of daily specials at great price points makes this a perfect spot for breakfast or lunch. Plenty of locals and good neighborhood spot.

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and

offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
