Known for being one of the few places that serve calas, sweetened fried rice cakes that date to the mid-1800s. The egg dishes are okay, but it’s the calas you want (and we can’t recommend lunch or dinner entrees). The high-ceilinged room and outdoor courtyard will immerse you in the French Quarter aura, and the service is full of “hons” and “dahlins,” though no one’s moving too fast.
