This spot is actually famous for their beignets and cafe au lait, and the original location (founded in 1870, so you know they know what they’re doing!) was in the French Quarter. They moved that location to Metairie in 1974 and recently (2012) opened up a new one, conveniently located in City Park. I could not be more stoked about this. Being able to spend the day running in the park, or at the museum, and then drinking with friends at Mick’s, followed up by some really great super-late-night gumbo? Count me in.
Morning Call is cash only.
