Ate here twice. Great open café area with live music. Had their breakfast buffet if was great, very inexpensive. They also have a great lunch menu, appetizers and cocktails. There is something for everyone.

Relaxing cafe with outdoor tables and chairs, various jazz bands throughout the day and evening, had my first Muffulett sandwich and it was great, just chilled 90 minutes away in a great place.

I really enjoyed the food, drinks and music at the Market Cafe. We ate here a couple of times during our stay in New Orleans and it was great both times. Good prices and a great menu.

We ordered the New Orleans Sampler. Small portions of four of the foods thatNO is know for. (Red beans and rice, Gumbo, Jambolya, and ????) It satified us both. A very good four piece blues band purformed BB King and other blues classics.

Sat outside on the patio for lunch and listened to some good music. Catfish po-boy was ok but was hoping for more. Drinks were good but come for the atmosphere and good vibes. Cheers.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
