Neyows Creole Cafe

Cheers to my hometown Nola!! A must have when I visit is chargrilled oysters from Neyows Creole Cafe in Mid-City. These oysters are like no other and grilled to perfection. Located in the Mid City neighborhood of uptown New Orleans, Neyows is well known for their authentic creole cuisine. The restaurant is in my top five of favorite restaurants in New Orleans and everything on the menu is star. If you ever visit New Orleans, give Neyows a try. And don’t forget to try the Bow Wow drink!!

Guy’s PoBoys in Nola

On this trip home to Nola, I was sure to visit my favorite poboy shop to lift my spirits. My husband and I love to sit inside Guy’s Poboys and just let the ambiance of New Orleans sink in. It’s such a great feeling to be able to relax and enjoy a good shrimp poboy all the while laughing about life. This is what Nola is all about to me.

Brunch at Katie’s

There’s a neighborhood restaurant in Mid-City New Orleans that is serving up great Brunch eats. Katie’s Restaurant & Bar has been a staple in the Mid-City community since 1984. When you walk into Katie’s, you are greeted with the best southern hospitality. The menu is filled with mouth watering options that will have you thinking about your comeback visit to try them. Drinks were flowing as they should on a beautiful Sunday. The staff’s goodbye greeting, “Thanks Y’all”, gave a wonderful feeling of gratitude and unity. It was such a pleasure seeing people from all walks of life having fellowship, the best Mimosas ever, and Brunch. If you are in New Orleans or plan to visit, give Katie’s Restaurant & Bar a try.

A Krewe Brunch

The last Sunday Brunch of 2018 was in NOLA and had to be the greatest in my book. I had the honor of spending it with my fellow members from the Krewe of Nefertiti. The Brunch setting was placed at Jack Rose Restaurant on the famed St. Charles Ave. Everything from the food, champagne, to the decor was breathtaking. We had such a great time in fellowship and the music kept the fun and laughter going. If you are in New Orleans or plan to visit, please give Sunday Brunch at Jack Rose Restaurant a try.

Charlotte’s Female Brewery

My love for Charlotte, NC has just been enhanced by the discovery it’s first female brewery. Bold Missy is awesome! When you walk in, the space is so inviting and modern. I was greeted by Lybby and given samples of the some great Brew. I chose the “Make your (Mess)age” Brut IPA and trust me it was good. Thanks to Heather and Lybby for being so welcoming and willing to humor me about Brunch ventures. I will definitely pay Bold Missy a visit on the next Charlotte trip.

Backatown Coffee NOLA

There’s nothing like a great place to sit down and have a cup of coffee.  My new go to place in NOLA is Backatown Coffee Parlour.  The setting is so peaceful and quaint that you could spend so much time enjoying the morning paper, a good book read, or collaborating project ideas with friends.  Backatown Coffee shop is a great addition to places to visit in NOLA.
