Order the Vegetable Platter...that's all I really need to say, but I'll say more. I also ordered the Gulf Coast beignets, just because as soon as I see the word 'beignet', they are ordered. They were very tasty. The vegetable entree is a chef's choice...More

Based on TA reviews, we had lunch at Backstreet Cafe on the patio and enjoyed a terrific meal. The starter of ravioli was terrific, as was the entree salad. Be sure to have lunch on the patio for the best ambiance.

Great place for a couples happy hour and dinner in the patio. Food was outstanding and staff attentive. Works perfect as a pre-theater spot.
