Absolutely love the eggplant sandwich! Appetizer of fried green tomatoes with grilled shrimp was superb! Very happy and friendly wait staff.
Terrible service. Cobb salad was great. French onion was so burnt, was shocked they served it. Waiter was rude and forget we were there despite there only being 3 customers.
Vile staff.We were in New Orleans in May and stayed a block away at the Lafayette Hotel, which didn't have breakfast while we were there. (Their breakfast cafe was closed for two weeks.)I was suffering from a shattered left foot and massive damage to my skin from an attack during which I'd nearly died. I was traveling with my beautiful partner and my PTSD service dog, a small Belgian Shepherd. After being referred by the reception staff at the hotel to Cafe at the Square, I sent the girls ahead so that they wouldn't get soaked and while I limped/hopped past Lafayette Square through a tropical storm, (impossible to run because I was mostly hopping on one leg what with the smashed foot and broken toes but there were no cabs running and all of the hotel's umbrellas were gone already,) we reached Cafe At The Square utterly soaked. The place was half full and we collapsed at a table in the corner furthest from the bar and closest to the square, away from the other patrons who were enjoying their brunches and surrounded by other empty tables. My sweetheart was shivering with her hair wet and blown across her face by the gusting rain.A human piece of garbage came over and said that we had to leave because dogs weren't allowed. I even embarrassed myself by taking off my soaked greatcoat, rolling up my sleeves and showing my hugely damaged forearms that were riddled with keloids, (bright red, raised scars,) some the size of quarters and explained that my dog was a PTSD service animal. She was in her harness and perfectly well behaved, but since I'd forgotten to bring her laminated service card from the hotel they threw us out. I kid you not. Even after I took off my shoe and sock with great difficulty and showed him my left foot, which was literally blackish blue tinged with yellow from the bruising. I asked for the manager and she was even worse. They literally made us walk back into a storm, we had to literally step over sandbags and back into the gusting rain and flooded street. And the place only had ten other people in it, because you know.... there was a crazy storm and they had sandbags at the doors!"Come back with your dog's ID and we'll be happy to serve you!" Yeah right! It took everything that I had to drag myself through the storm to get there in the first place, as if I'd repeat the process to eat a place with such sad service! They didn't even let us order to breakfast go.JERKS!They wouldn't even take my suggestion to call the hotel and confirm that I was there with a service animal. It may well be that the policy is to require proof that an animal is a service animal. But there is also such a thing as common decency, to say nothing of common sense!! We hobbled back to the Lafayette through that same storm, loaded up our SUV and literally left New Orleans. You couldn't pay me money to give the people at this place another try. We own a travel company and I actually go out of my way to warn people to stay away from Cafe at the Square, even while I recommend staying at the Lafayette a block away.EDIT: The owner's response to my post is a transparent evasion. My review mentions other people eating there and I certainly wouldn't be complaining about being turned away from a place that was closed down for flooding! What nonsense! I told the waiter and the female manager that I would eviscerate the cafe online, and I kept my word even though it took me several months to do so. STAY AWAY!
