According to most restaurant critics, the perfect Creole meal is served on a plate, which rests on a table with legs. Try some authentic New Orleans cuisine the way it was meant to be served with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of Creole fare at Broad Street Cafe.
The family-owned eatery unveils a bountiful menu of classic New Orleans Creole fare, which the affable staff serves up in a fun, festive environment. Fingers amble toward appetizers such as crispy fried eggplant sticks ($6.95) and buffalo shrimp ($7.95), leading up to decadent main offerings including overstuffed po boys ($5.95+) that flaunt their girth like medieval royalty. Opt for the gumbo ($4.95/small, $6.95 large), or split a fried oyster po boy with a flirtatious merman ($10.95+). Whole-loaf po boys ($24.95+) are available to satiate a famished group of friends or fellow kangaroo jurors, and sweet postmeal treats, such as banana foster bites ($3.95) and house-made bread pudding ($3.95), send diners out the door on a pillowy sugar cloud.
The café, adorned with a locally inspired mural and colorful walls, provides a vibrant setting in which to enjoy a meal or spontaneous staging of Waiting for Godot, complemented by the musical stylings of local instrument-wielders every Friday.
