Southern American · CBD · $$
Housemade breads, biscuits and sweets provide the foundation for the Southern breakfast, lunch and brunch dishes at this CBD bakery from the Besh Restaurant Group. The bright, lofty space nods to the past with touches like 'Uneeda Biscuit' painted across the brick wall above the bar, which pours coffee, tea, cocktails and spiked slushies.

Incredible food! Somehow managed to be both decadent and fresh-tasting. The ambiance is lovely - sorry of a modern industrial shabby chic. Think Williamsburg Brooklyn. The service was absolutely wonderful. Kind and accommodating. The server quickly brainstormed a fantastic vegetarian substitution which was really nice. I loved the cheese grits. Lovely latte art. Good portion sizes. A little pricey for the area (one breakfast is about $15 - plus coffees for 2 of us it was $55 before tip) but well worth it. Highly recommend.

Will be back when I visit NOLA! The fried chicken sandwich was excellent with the house made Hawaiian roll. You must have the milk and cookies dessert - their vanilla bean infused glass of milk pairs perfectly with salted, gooey chocolate chip cookies and a side of cookie dough. Brilliant! The homemade saltines with the pimento cheese were also a step up on the appetizer. Friendly, if a little distracted, service at the bar. Go here!

The servers are rude. She didn’t smile one time. I also noticed the same attitude from the servers around me. Hair in both of our biscuits. The food was NOTHING special, I tasted several things on the menu. I don’t plan on being back. The atmosphere is all they’re doing right. Cute decor but I want better food and service. Giving two stars for the atmosphere and soft napkins.
