Quick Bites in the French Quarter

Need a quick bite between activities? Grab some famous New Orleans beignets at Cafe Du Monde or check out the Vampire Cafe for a unique experience hosted by a “real-life vampire.” If you're into casual bites, try The Will & The Way and Port of Call for great burgers and steaks. For a traditional option, head to Killer Poboys for roasted sweet potato, seared Gulf shrimp, and glazed pork belly po-boys.  Finally, Fives Bar and the Old Absinthe House are solid choices for a bite to eat and a nightcap.
