Foursquare Tips

  • Boozicles are exactly what you think, assuming you think that they're booze-filled popsicles that come in tingling-ly handsome flavors like ScrewBerry, Bananas Foster and Berry Coolada.
  • The beignets are amazing.
  • To all the New Orleans newbies out there: don't eat the beignets with a fork! I saw you, Arlington lady, don't think I didn't.
  • Get the Muff-a-lotta: Chef David Guass fairly traditional take on a classic muffuletta sandwich, with mortadella, salami, provolone and house-made olive salad.
  • Wheeee beignets!
  • The beignets are delicious.
  • Everything is delicious except the hotdogs.
  • The veggie sandwich is one of the best things on a menu that abounds in bacon and pork. Also good: Shrimp with green-onion rmoulad; gumbo; turkey-meatball sandwich; crawfish pot pie.
  • Drop by during Mardi Gras for some king cake.
  • Place is ok for decor breakfast food and chai is lacking...ill give it a couple more goes though...
  • Bayou will serve up gumbo, po boys, and even chicory coffee. It will be our own little slice of Big Easy goodness.
  • Free wifi and friendly staff. Biscuits that made this northern girl realize why southerners are obsessed with biscuits. They have a different sandwich special every day of the week. Yum!
  • Better beignets than Cafe Du Monde!
  • If you don't try the pepper jelly, you're missing out on everything that is goodness.
  • Awesome stop! Get the beignets. Biscuit sandwiches. Basil Mint Latte was AMAZING! One of a kind for sure. Check out the bathroom. Recipes to read while you 'go'.
  • The Arm Drip sandwich is the ultimate sandwich. Just be aware of the mess. Add some Crystal hot sauce for some spice.
  • Half the staff is wonderful. Half the staff is rude. It's worth putting up with the latter to snag one of their delicious croissants.
  • Beignets: "...The light fluffy dough and powdered sugar takes me back to my childhood in New Orleans." --Aba Kwawu (NVM's January 2013 Eat This Now! issue)
  • Ask for a "snowball" to cool off on a hot summer day. It's an amazing combination of the traditional snow come with a touch of cream. Wedding cake, strawberry and nectar flavors are great!
  • The meatballs here are the best!!
