Included In

You can find some of the most affordable and delicious breakfast food from this pagoda-shaped, worker-owned cooperative cafe at the edge of the 7th Ward. The menu has a little bit of everything, but some of the best dishes are the soft and dense banana Nutella bread with its slightly crisp and chewy top, To Le’s lemongrass tofu taco made with ingredients direct from VEGGI Farmers Cooperative in New Orleans East, and the Cuban pulled pork taco, which you should wash down with a ginger-lavender tea or some mango lassi. There’s a ton of outdoor seating here, too, including a covered patio and a long counter where you can do some birdwatching.
