Almost used the health food option for this place---The B&B we stayed in had vouchers for eating here, so it was an easy choice, and a great one as well. Went for breakfast and lunch while in town----She had the special breakfast Poche, which featured boudin sausage and remoulade sauce, and their muffins were superb----the sandwiches and the soups at lunch were also healthy and good---we bought some souveneers there as well---some photographic tiles of local scenes for about $10 each from a local photographer...a great deal for a cool reminder of our trip!
Favorite Dish: tuna sandwich
We ate here our first night, not wanting to cross over to Nawlins after driving from the Atlanta area (about 7 1/2 hours). Incredible seafood gumbo with a real roux flavor, great BBQ shrimp (served whole so you can suck the heads!!! MMMM) and we split a platter of fried shrimp and oysters that were fresh and lightly cooked-----good drinks, too! A friendly neighborhood spot with great food and ambiance.
platters--------16 to 19

Favorite Dish: gumbo
I didn't want to pay $22 (for two of us) to take the Mardi Gras world tour. So we paid for a cooking school lunch -$8 @. They demonstrate how to make various dishes. As a part of that, we got to go through some of the warehouse, and when the tour went by, we heard that part of it.
Favorite Dish: The cooking was finished already, but there was still some food to eat. We ate lunch with some of the workers, who said they paid for it too (i.e. they didn't eat free). We got a salad, some gumbo, iced tea, and some bread pudding for our $8. The meal was served in foam plates and there wasn't a lot of food.
