Eating is one of the biggest parts about going on a trip. It can be difficult to navigate where to eat with eleven other individuals. I found that going to the French Market was often quick, simple, and delicious. Here are a few places to check out if you get a little hungry in the French Market.
This food shop is my go-to for yummy healthy food. The menu consists of New Orlean’s classics. Po-boys, crab-cakes, and gumbo are all great choices. I got the crab-cake po-boy with a side of potatoes. The coolest thing is that the dish contained no animals or animal products. This is a must-hit for all my vegetarians and vegans.
Gone Vegan cakes, cookies, and brownies are sold in stores all over New Orleans, especially in coffee shops.
As a vegan, I don’t eat a ton of sweets, but boy these were worth every calorie.
Crepes are glorified pancakes. You can put anything on them. Nutella. Peanut butter. Cheese. Spinach. Chicken. I had cashew cheese, spinach, and tomatoes on mine.
The Crepe Cart is one of the best vegetarian eateries in the French Market. They take it a step further and offer several vegan options as well.
The Gazebo Cafe is one of my favorites. With live jazz in the background, a large list of daiquiris to choose from, and a menu loaded with Louisiana’s favorites this restaurant is a great choice.
Muffuletta sandwiches stuffed with veggies, covered in olive oil and spices, and salted with green olives. Usually, Muffuletta has ham, salami, and turkey in them. I just asked for it without meat. Gazebo cafe is a great place to go if you are looking for a lot of different options to accommodate everyone.
Okay, so this is not a food place. But I would 100% recommend you check out this neat shop right next to the French Market. They have every kind of soda you can imagine.
I tried a carrot cake soda that may have fizzled and bubbled, but otherwise tasted exactly like a carrot cake. I really like the carrot cake one. It smelled exactly like the carrot cake my sister makes.
Hope you enjoy eating your way the vegetarian eateries in the French Market.
