Waffles On Maple, Metairie, LA Report #349

This place is called Waffles on Maple because it’s original location was on Maple St., in Uptown New Orleans. I went to that location once years ago, and the place was tiny. I mean so tiny I had to walk sideways past other customers to get through it. That location is permanently closed now. The… Continue reading Waffles On Maple, Metairie, LA Report #349

Bradford House, Oklahoma City, OK Report #330

This one will be short and sweet because this is more of a hotel report than a food report. Everything was good, but nothing was really extraordinary about the food. We were in Oklahoma City visiting my daughter. She had stayed in this hotel on a trip up there and really loved it, so we… Continue reading Bradford House, Oklahoma City, OK Report #330

Riccobono’s Panola St. Café, New Orleans, LA Report #312

This place is owned by the same folks that own Riccobono’s Peppermill and Café Navarre, so I knew it was going to be good.  It’s located on a back street in a residential neighborhood, so you’ve got to be looking for it to find it. Our waitress recommended the Boudin omelet.  It sounded good and… Continue reading Riccobono’s Panola St. Café, New Orleans, LA Report #312

Daisy Dukes Diner, Kenner, LA Report #296

Back in March of 2019 I discovered this place called the American Pie Diner.  Loved the place!  I was going to be a regular.  So of course it promptly went out of business. At least the building didn’t stay vacant long.  Daisy Dukes opened another location there. I knew about their French Quarter location, but… Continue reading Daisy Dukes Diner, Kenner, LA Report #296

Slim Goodies Diner, New Orleans, LA Report #288

Thanks to the Coronavirus this is my first time dining INSIDE of a New Orleans restaurant since a lunch at Red’s Chinese on March 15th (which was delicious by the way).  Restaurants here were allowed to open up for dine in yesterday. Some people have been concerned about the so called “contact tracing” the media… Continue reading Slim Goodies Diner, New Orleans, LA Report #288

Metro Cafe Diner, Stone Mountain, GA Report #234

Ok, this should be my last out of town report on this road trip.  I’m heading back to New Orleans tomorrow.  I say “should be”, because no telling where I may stop and eat on the way home. We were staying at Stone Mountain Park and decided to leave the park for dinner.  This place… Continue reading Metro Cafe Diner, Stone Mountain, GA Report #234

Surrey’s Café & Juice Bar, New Orleans, LA Report #212

  This place bills itself as New Orleans oldest organic juice bar.  I could care less about juice.  I want FOOD!  And what a glorious place it is for food! Small little cramped joint, so if you have to wait for a table you’ll be waiting outside.  There are some trees around so at least… Continue reading Surrey’s Café & Juice Bar, New Orleans, LA Report #212

American Pie Diner, Kenner, LA Report #188

**********  PERMANENTLY CLOSED  **********     I’ve passed by this place dozens of times and never thought about stopping in.  Soon I have to pick up someone from the airport with a late flight, and was trying to find restaurants open late in the area.  This place is open 24/7, so I looked at the… Continue reading American Pie Diner, Kenner, LA Report #188

Café Navarre, New Orleans, LA Report #136

  For breakfast we tried to go to the S. Broad Street location of the Ruby Slipper.  I wanted to try one of their Egg Benedict dishes, but when we got there it was a 20-30 minute wait for a table.  I just downloaded that “Nowait” app, but didn’t use it.  Luckily, with my vast… Continue reading Café Navarre, New Orleans, LA Report #136

Another Broken Egg Café, New Orleans, LA Report #127

  This is the Lakeview location. Really pretty place. Like you’re dining in a New Orleans Victorian style home.  You can dine inside or outside on the wrap around porch.  Since we’re in New Orleans in August, and at 9:20 AM it was already 86 degrees outside, we opted for inside. Cute coffee mugs.  Nice selection… Continue reading Another Broken Egg Café, New Orleans, LA Report #127
