Their menu offers a variety of dishes that you won't find on other menus. We ordered a vegetarian sandwich and a salad with lamb plus milkshakes for each. It easily fed 3 adults. Don't forget to check the specials boards posted inside.

I ordered a shrimp sandwich on ciabatta bread. Very fresh tasting and generous portion. My son and husband enjoyed delicious milkshakes.

Found this place overrated. We got 3 po boys: the ham, the turkey and the lamb. The lamb was not good. Just no spice or seasoning to the meat. The turkey and ham ones were just ok. Milk shakes were nothing special. Prices were a...More

Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
students living in the area ensure that Uptown and
Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly
