Go early. All 'seats' are stools at the bar. The cooks are all visible and fun to watch. Food is excellent! Omelets are HUGE!

We come to eat breakfast here every time we go to New Orleans. Ride the trolley cars and watch the lovely Victorian homes on the way. The food orders are not written down, the waiter calls it out to the cook and it is great! Fun place and good food!

It was pouring down rain when we arrived- flooding along Carrollton. We waited about 10 minutes. Most of the seating is counter. We had the hamburger steak. Gravy, mashed potatoes & corn. Fast service. I was disappointed that no onions were on the hamburger steak. The hamburgers looked good & were a popular choice. Lots of sandwiches to choose from... More

At the recommendation of a friend we came here. We rode the street car all the way down which was kind of nice in itself. We both got a muffulatta sandwich which was very good. It has become the standard which I measure all other muffulatta sandwiches against. He got a milkshake which must have been good because he wouldn't... More

Our fourth visit to NOLA and our fourth visit to The Camellia Grill. I always get the incredibly good omelet, They have so many and you can customized them also. It was incredible: bacon, mushrooms, and cheese. With a side of cheesy grits and a bit of Crystal hot sauce over everything. Whether you go to this one or the... More

The food was not good and I was discriminated against for being a "senior, white haired, female". Will never go back.

We went in on Friday to eat. We sat at the marble counter and a german cockroach was running along on top of the counter right in front of us. We couldn't eat there after that. No one, not even the hostess at the door asked us anything or said anyrhing to us as we left.

Meh. It was okay -- food generous. But it was not the super friendly experience we had had in previous visits years ago. Staff seemed bored. Good place for a quick stop though for coffee and basic breakfast, not much more.

The Food was FANTASTIC, cooked right in front of you (breakfast, lunch, dinner). They write your order down, place it in front of you and CALL OUT THE ENTIRE ORDER to the cook... More

Wanted to take my son on the streetcar and decided to eat here. We came for a early supper, so had the place to ourselves. I got a cheeseburger which was just as good as it was when I was a kid a million years ago. Husband got the roast beef sandwich which he said was better than the one... More

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighbourhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
