This Tremé mainstay is another quintessential family-owned, neighborhood restaurant. It’s lively with locals at the mostly average breakfast (the homemade hot sausages are slightly above that, and the catfish and eggs is a winner) and for the lunch buffet. If you’re a light eater it might be a bit high-priced as well, so come hungry and dig into the terrific fried chicken, okay gumbo, and red beans, and a few other soul-food standards (also come early; they do run out). Better yet, order a la carte: the aforementioned chicken or our favorite, the standout trout Baquet, a delicate fish filet topped with garlic-butter sauce and lump crabmeat.
