Stopped in for a quick bite to eat. The green iced tea was very refreshing. Chicken gumbo had great flavor. Just got a cup. Next time, I will order a bowl. I will be back. Especially, for brunch.

Positive: Excellent waitstaff; good food and great location on Palafox street. We enjoyed the Special on a Thursday-chicken pot pie (good, not great-bland) and a Chicken Parmesan sandwich-also good. Service speedy.
