This is my first time at Mona Cafe and the food was good and quantity enough for one person. I would recommend giving it a try if you really like to experience different kind of food.

This is a Cajun cafe named Mona's. Pictures and web site incorrect, but address and phone correct. Great CAJUN eats. Quick friendly service. We were in NOLA for National Youth Gathering. 25,000 mostly Youth were in town. 15 on our group this visit .
