About Jimmy J's Café
At Jimmy J’s Café, we make everything from scratch using the freshest ingredients. It takes a while longer, but we know it makes all the difference. We are one of the French Quarter’s best kept secrets. Ask anyone from the Big Easy and they will tell you we know the secret to making good food. New Orleans is famous for our music, hospitality, and one-of-a-kind cuisine. Here’s what just a few of our customers had to say about their dining experience with us.
“I stumbled into this quaint little colorful New Orleans diner off of Charters expecting nothing more than the usual cup of Joe and hot breakfast you would associate with any local breakfast cafe. To my delight the meal I was served can only be described as the closest thing to a religious experience I have ever had. Everything was made from scratch, my Poached Eggs Tuscan style were plated as though I were eating in a 5 star restaurant and the quality and flavor of my meal definitely sets a new standard for Breakfast in New Orleans. When I received my bill I was amazed to see that it was almost the exact same cost as all the other local diners that only offered up what is now in my opinion nothing more than a standard plate of mediocrity for breakfast. This is definitely one stop you do not want to pass up if you are ever in New Orleans."”
“Really enjoyed this place. Came here with my girlfriend and another couple during Mardi Gras and enjoyed the food so much we came back the next day. Very casual, limited seating and an all day menu. The prices are very reasonable! As some have noted, the Shrimp Po Boy is on point--really soft, accommodating bread overloaded with crispy seasoned fried shrimp. Put together like a classic Po Boy, along with the fries this is a solid meal even for a heavy hitter. The grits were excellent and didn't require any additional butter. Red beans and rice were really good. They had a special Mardi Gras drink list and featured a bacon infused Bloody Mary, can't go wrong with bacon-anything. Overall would highly recommend for anyone looking for a quick, delicious southern style meal.”
“Very small place, but BIG on taste. Really, really good food. We had the Fried Shrimp/Oyster Po Boy and it was delicious. Our friends had The Reuben - tasty, big and filling. Good for beer drinkers. The portions are HUGE!”
