Vegetarian in New Orleans @ Green Goddess

Green Goddess is a tiny restaurant in the French Quarter. Located on quiet street, it has both indoor and outdoor seating and serves some great vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options like roasted beet hummus and a rolled uttapam (pictured above), a kind of savory pancake with green peas, tomatoes, onions, peppers and vegetable curry.

Hyatt New Orleans French Quarter

If you’re looking for a hotel with a great location, the Hyatt New Orleans French Quarter is a great pick. Right on Iberville Street, the hotel is just a couple minutes walk to local oyster restaurants and about a 5 minute walk to Cafe Beignet for a decadent sweet breakfast. We stayed in a spacious room with […]

Where to Eat New Orleans Oysters

New Orleans Seafood New Orleans is as much a city of beautiful architecture as it is of decadent food. While in the city, we bookmarked a couple places to try specifically for their oysters. Acme Oysterhouse is the oysterhouse, but the line is always out the door and in the rainy weather, it’s not so pleasant, especially […]

I have to say, if I wasn’t searching for it, I don’t know that I’d have stopped by the Green Goddess (it’s very easy to miss) and I don’t know that I’d have chosen it, as I’m not vegetarian or gluten free. But the food was good and filling and it was great to try something outside of the standard seafood fare! […]

Beignets and Cafe Au Lait from Cafe du Monde

The one overwhelming advice I got pre-trip to New Orleans was to get beignets from Cafe du Monde. At first, I didn’t even know what a beignet was. The french pastry is similar to a New York Zeppole or English fritter – a deep fried pastry dough served high and fresh with loads of powdered sugar […]

mhm I wish they sold beignets everywhere – they are so so good!

[…] Because I couldn’t get enough of the dessert while in New Orleans, I went to Cafe Beignet for breakfast to get a morning cup of coffee and test out this shop’s version of beignets. The million dollar question: how did it compare compared to Cafe du Monde? […]
