Our Visitors Just Love Our Food

& much more in a warm friendly atmosphere

We went for lunch, not much of a crowd. Very elaborate menu but has the basic components of a good southern food. Friend went for gumbo, I went for Po Boy and we shared the beignet. I particularly liked my sandwich with the mix of meats and coleslaw to freshen up the sandwich. First time trying beignet, good portion for sharing.
