This was the best little cafe! It was off the beaten path, especially since we walked there from the French Quarter, but it was well worth it! The shrimp and grits were delicious!! We also had some great cinnamon rolls. You can get cupcakes with...More

This place by far has the best shrimp and grits ever. But close behind is their peach pastry! I went with friends to New Orleans since we found this hidden gem. The first time we went (yes, we went a few times) we enjoyed the...More

We stumbled on this hidden gem just down from our B and B. Only open breakfast and lunch, but what a menu. Great food and great service.

Just a small local bakery in the Marigny area nthat serves wonderful breakfast and sandwiches. Another recommendation from our daughter who lives there now, it is definitely a great casual place. We rode our rented Blue Bikes there from our hotel in the French Quarter....More

We were staying at an AirBnB just up the street and decided to try this for a late breakfast before we left town. Very homey, converted-corner-store -into-a-restaurant kind of place, with friendly waiters and great food. Omelet, pancakes, grits, bacon and sausage were all great,...More

Friendly neighborhood cafe with great breakfast/baked goods! Cafe is located amongst several streets of colorfully-painted homes - making it a great start/end point for exploring Faubourg Marigny.

It was great to sit outside and enjoy the conversation, the food/drink, and watching the people go by. I met a nice young lady here

Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward,
the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely
residential. Of course, folks around here love to go
out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere
in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the
festivities, well then so much the better! Home to
some of the most revered live music venues in New
Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining

I would also say 10 is a large group and it would be hit or miss on everyone being seated together. You should call them.
