Great breakfast & lunch spot that will fill your craving for healthy food from their "Good Cat" menu or a more traditional Southern home-cooked meal from their "Bad Cat" menu. Also a great spot for gluten-free diners.

“Despite what the restaurant name is, they make GREAT food...and some Nola classics like shrimp and grits, gumbo, oyster poboys and boudin poboys. Also good hangover food. Good brunch.”

Bagel Shop
“ THE HUMBLE BAGEL STORY Humble Bagel was founded by Casey Mackintosh, from just outside of Washington D.C., and Tara Mikhail, a native of Long Island. Together, they envisioned an authentic, New York style bagel shop in the heart of Uptown New Orleans. Humble Bagel bakes authentic, hand-rolled, kettle-boiled bagels fresh daily. We designed the kitchen to be open so that everybody can see the process of boiling and baking fresh bagels. Our bagels are made of five ingredients: Flour, Water, Steen’s Cane Syrup, Salt, and Yeast. Be sure to ask about our daily special! Please check out our mason jar recycling program! We fresh squeeze our orange juice daily, you can keep the mason jar or receive $1 off your next juice purchase if you return it. Whenever possible, local ingredients are used. We believe in New Orleans and we want to support it, including the use of Steen’s Cane Syrup and New Orleans Roast coffee. We love dogs! We have outdoor seating so be sure to bring your furry friends to have bagels with you! Our darlings: Buffy the pug and Knuckles the pit mix. Knuckles was rescued from Canine Connection on Tchoupitoulas. Buffy is the boss, of course.”

Hot Dog Joint
“Famous hot dog joint! Can get anything from an all beef hot dog, chicken dog, veggie dog, and even an Alligator dog. Great place to grab a beer and sit outside when the weather is nice. ”

Asian Restaurant
“An intimate, unpretentious locale for Asian, French & international flavors, plus ramen for lunch and dinner!!! This little restaurant is a local favorite and is located in a random area of the city; however, locals flock here because the food is just so good and creative! Expect a 45 minute wait, but it's so worth it. The prices are extremely reasonable as well! ”
