    We have dined at Cafe' B many times over the years and have always enjoyed it very much. Mark, a very fine server, usually took care of us. We always requested him. We had our last meal there on Wednesday, 12/19/18 (the yummy chicken tenders) and we are very sorry to see Cafe' B close. It was a great neighborhood upscale casual place to eat.

    Love, love, love the fresh drum fish, the roasted butternut squash and the sauteed kale. I love that Cafe B will make substitutions on the menu so that I can eat gluten free and paleo. I love the energy of Cafe B and I'm so sad it will be closing. Please reopen in Old Metairie (with better parking). The wine list is great, too.

    Really enjoyed our Sunday brunch at Cafe B. Thankfully, they have free valet parking so no worries on finding a parking spot. Food was very good and bottomless Mimosas doesn’t hurt!

    Cafe B has always been consistently wonderful in terms of food quality, portion size, ambiance, friendly and helpful wait staff, and wine selection. I will miss having a fine Brennan's restaurant in the Old Metairie area that is open for lunch, brunch, and dinner.

    They had to get the waitress from outside because she was smoking. When she came to our table to take our order, she reeked of cigarette smoke. It was nauseating! The gumbo was extremely salty, so much so that I couldn't eat 1/3 of it. Shrimp and grits were not good. The shrimp had an extremely strong iodine taste. Definitely not fresh shrimp! Needless to say, I will not go back there again! Totally disappointed.

    Cafe B is one of our favorite restaurants and they never disappoint. Food was delicious. We had one of the specials which was softshell crab with crab meat on top. It was the best softshell crab we have ever eaten. We also had the Grilled Gulf fish (mahi mahi) which was also excellent.

    I absolutely love Cafe B. I live in Hammond and eat there as often as I can. The food is excellent and the service is great. Everyone is so friendly. I’m just sorry that Cafe B will be closing at the end of the year. I’m going to get there as often as I can and I suggest you do too before it’s too late.
