Dot’s Diner, Jefferson, LA Report #463

Even though it was about lunchtime, we were in the mood for breakfast. We headed to a great breakfast spot we hadn’t been to in a bit. The Panola Street Cafe. Since it was the busy time of the day, we tried to call first to see if there was a wait for a table,… Continue reading Dot’s Diner, Jefferson, LA Report #463

La Madeleine, Metairie, LA Report #459

There are a few of these in and around the New Orleans area, but I’ve never been tempted to stop in one. I’m just not a fan of French food. Not sure why. Maybe it’s because my native New Orleans cuisine has so much French influence in it I don’t find it different enough to… Continue reading La Madeleine, Metairie, LA Report #459

Blue Line Sandwich Co., Metairie, LA Report #453

I was perusing restaurant reviews and I saw one on this place. I looked it up and discovered it was in Metairie, on Metairie Rd. I’ve been down that street hundreds of times and couldn’t remember ever seeing it. Funny thing about that is I’ve been to this place called Mark Twain’s Pizza on Metairie… Continue reading Blue Line Sandwich Co., Metairie, LA Report #453

Pitt Grill, New Boston, TX Report #434

Still on my road trip, driving from New Orleans to an undisclosed location in Oklahoma. We got hungry. So as I’m driving I’m looking for anything that’s not a fast food chain, but for miles and miles that was all I saw. I was starving, and almost ready to give in and stop at a… Continue reading Pitt Grill, New Boston, TX Report #434

Abita Springs Cafe, Abita Springs, LA Report #430

It was such a beautiful day here in New Orleans we decided to take the bikes, make the voyage across the Causeway to the Northshore of Lake Pontchartrain and do a little bike riding on the Tammany Trace. With my luck when we arrived there it was raining. But it soon stopped and we were… Continue reading Abita Springs Cafe, Abita Springs, LA Report #430

Perks Coffee & Cafe, Metairie, LA Report #424

We’re always looking for a new Sunday morning breakfast spot. Actually, since I sleep until 10:00 AM on Sundays, I actually should say “brunch” spot. We’re always in the mood for breakfast but end up not eating it until almost noon! That was the case when we decided to try this place today. When I… Continue reading Perks Coffee & Cafe, Metairie, LA Report #424

Criollo, New Orleans, LA Report #405

My first COOLinary dinner this year was at Appoline, and it was very good. This is only my second one of the season. I’ve got to step up my game! Here’s a link for an explanation of COOLinary and participating restaurants: https://www.neworleans.com/coolinary/ This restaurant is located in the French Quarter, inside of the Hotel Monteleone… Continue reading Criollo, New Orleans, LA Report #405

Tic Toc Café, Metairie, LA Report #361

I’m always on the hunt for new breakfast spots. This is one of those places I’ve driven past a hundred times, and for some reason I never considered stopping in to eat. Today was the day to give them a try. Pretty small place. They’re open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. That’s… Continue reading Tic Toc Café, Metairie, LA Report #361

Daisey Mae’s, New Orleans, LA Report #357

I’ve been working right down the street from this place for years and never tried them. Until today. Apparently they’re known for their Bloody Mary’s. Having alcoholic drinks with breakfast isn’t just acceptable in New Orleans, but encouraged! If I was a drinker I would have given one a try. I love Crab Cake Benedict.… Continue reading Daisey Mae’s, New Orleans, LA Report #357

Fullblast Brunch, New Orleans, LA Report #341

Back in Report #334, I explained how my rewards credit card gives me points for dining at certain restaurants. This one was on the list. Being located on a back street in a residential area, that’s the only way I would have found out about it! Nice looking little place. You can tell a lot… Continue reading Fullblast Brunch, New Orleans, LA Report #341
