Breakfast yes! Stayed in a nearby hotel and dropped in for breakfast. Did not disappoint! French toast spectacular. And the pancakes are literally the size of a pizza! No joke! Stop in before visiting NOLA. You’ll be glad you did!

I went just after 9pm thinking that they were open 24 hours a day but they were not. They closed at 10pm that night which was ok because I had time to order and eat. I had pasta jambalaya and it was very good

Crazy good food in mass quantities. Make sure to ask for Shermaine as your waitress. She was fantastic. Pancakes are too die for. One feeds four people. Omelette was good and so were shrimp and grits. Overall a must do eatery in NOLA!!!!

I had breakfast at City Diner this morning. 2 eggs, hash browns, sausage, a biscuit, and coffee. You can probably find a breakfast as good, but you won’t find one any better. Everything was prepared to a tee. The wait staff is excellent and friendly....More
