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.
Meals from the Heart Cafe
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.
They also sell Girls Gone Vegan cakes, cookies, and brownies. As a vegan I don’t eat a ton of sweets, but boy these were worth every calories.
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. It was delectable.
The Gazebo Cafe
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. Muffaletta sandwiches stuffed with veggies, covered in olive oil and spices, and salted with green olives. Usually Muffaletta have ham, salami, and turkey in them. I just asked for it without meat. The gazebo cafe is a great place to go if you are looking for a lot of different options to accomodate 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 ever kind of soda you I can imagine. I tried carrot cake and lemon maraine. I really like the carrot cake one. It smelled exactly like the carrot cake my sister makes.
Hope you enjoy eating your way through the French Market like I do.
