    I really wanted to love this place - to find a new “go to” brunch spot. Based on the reviews, it seemed very promising. I made a reservation for Sunday brunch at 12:15, which turned out not to have been necessary because they were not busy - plenty of open tables when we arrived. We were seated immediately and soon thereafter placed our orders. Then we waited. And waited. And waited some more. The server came to check on us and stated that the chef “seems to be getting tired.” We finally got our food at 1:20 - more than an hour after we were seated. The food itself was fine - but over an hour wait for scramble eggs, bacon and grits? I get that they seemed to be short-staffed but I could have gone back to the kitchen and made that meal myself in 20 minutes. Also, be aware that an 18% service charge is automatically added to the bill - which is fine because our server was very sweet and I would have tipped her 20%. Nevertheless, I’ll not be going back.

    Everything about the Dragonfly Cafe was wonderful. While we came to checkout the food and support the restaurant's social mission, "providing education, life-skills, and vocational training opportunities for children and adults with exceptionalities." We left blown away by the bright ambience, great natural light, cute decor, and a beautiful floral arrangement on each table. The menu had all of the standards for a brunch place and we were very impressed with each item. The fruit was super fresh and delcious. The grits had the perfect consistency and texture. The eggs were cooked to perfection. The bacon was crispy and went so well with the egg yolk on the toast. Highly recommend for a great value breakfast!

    Dragonfly Cafe is a special place. Light, airy, unpretentious, it feels like a sunny summer morning, and the staff was even sunnier, happy to explain the somewhat limited menu and very competent. We had breakfast, and the food was delicious. I definitely recommend it.

    There are honestly so many great things to say about this place. It’s beautiful, clean, and quiet. All the employees are SO friendly and welcoming. The food is fresh, unique, and perfectly seasoned. Tammy is the head baker, and every single thing she made was absolutely incredible. Hands down my favorite restaurant in New Orleans.
