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. The menu overall is unremarkable, but the high-ceilinged room, fading murals, and outdoor courtyard will immerse you in the French Quarter aura (it dates to 1894). The service is full of “hons” and “dahlins,” though no one’s moving too fast.
