The Camellia Grill: The Famous Chili Omelet!
I was told that the chili omelet was the reason to go here, so that's what I ordered---a HUGE 3 egg omelet deliciously overflowing with spicy chili! MMMMM! The chicory is a plus as well, My mama used to make Luzianne Chicory coffee when I was growing up, and learned to love it then. This place is right at a big turn in the streetcar, which is a fun way to get here, for breakfast or lunch.
Favorite Dish: Chili Omelet

Camellia Grill: Reopened 18 mos after Katrina
Someone told me to go to Camellia Grill for a great burger. And not knowing anything about this New Orleans institution, I assumed it would be a pub-like place with great burgers and beers. But its a diner. And an unbelievable one. No secret kitchen in the back. You watch them make your food. The staff is full of personality. You really should ride the St. Charles Street Car over to Carrollton St. and get some grub.
One thing to note - Luckily we arrived after visiting Audubon Park - at maybe 4:30 in the afternoon. There wasn't a crowd at that time of day, but it can get very crowded. There are padded benches along the back wall and instruction on how to sit at them to wait your turn for a stool at the counter.

Camellia Grill: A local favorite
If you'd like to get away from it all, take the St. Charles line to Camellia grill located in uptown New Orleans. The ride itself is a treat but the service, atmosphere and food that awaits you at the end of your trek will be unmatched. A popular place for breakfast among uptowners, this place boasts a menu to whet anyone's appetite.
Don’t be surprised if there is a line of eager, hungry diners. You will find an eclectic mix of locals, tourists, and students from nearby Tulane University, just blocks away. It’s definitely worth the wait.
Favorite Dish: While there is no one signature dish, the Chef Special omelet is a real house specialty: bacon, ham, onion, Swiss and American cheeses and French fries all held together with lighter than air eggs whipped in a blender. This concoction is cooked on a flat grill, gently folded and then blanketed with a most delicious, rich chili. Finally, the plate is crowned with French fries and delivered piping hot.
Camellia Grille (This is Correct Spelling): Back in Business
I have eaten here for just under 70 years. The superannuation of the owners and Katrina led to its closing although it was not damaged by the flood. It has new owners and has been refurbished but maintains the old "at the counter" seating. It reopened yesterday. Miraculously they have found their old wait-staff and cooks. The menu is the same as before, with hamburgers and chili omelettes and pecan waffles as the leading items plus coconut cream and pecan pie among other long-time favorites. The biggest change is that they now accept credit cards. Be sure to specify what type of coffee you drink, this is a place that serves chicory coffee if you want it.
Favorite Dish: Coconut cream pie . Don't you know why? My better half eats the pecan pie.
Camillia Grille: Down Home
Old fashioned diner New Orleans style! Great for breakfast or late night eating after a night on Bourbon Street! Expect a wait. The food is served fast and fresh and cooked on a grill in front of you - very very greasy. Omlettes are amazing for breakfast. Late night get a burger, frozen chocolate shake that WILL give you brain freeze or try a slice of their amazing apple pie served warm with ice cream. The waiters are friendly and really cool. Always a long line, but moves fast and worth the wait.
