Bardia's New Orleans Café

Updated 05/23/2014

Fodor's Review

Locals love this cozy café, where great food accompanied by jazz makes up for the tiny dining room. Seafood, whether batter-fried, blackened, or sautéed, is always a winner. The house favorite is the blackened catfish. Po'boy sandwiches (subs on French bread) are reasonably priced, fresh, and huge. Breakfast items, served all day, include traditional eggs Benedict or eggs New Orleans, with fried oysters, crabmeat, and hollandaise: they're both delicious. Don't leave

without trying the outstanding beignets.

Great ambiance makes you feel at home even if you're from New York

Between the hospitality of the owner and the warmth of the place in general as well as the food and the way it is prepared as well as the specials that vary from day to day or at least every couple of days, the place is a favorite in Adams-Morgan.

Can't Get enough of the Beignets

When in DC, I always stop by for breakfast for the coffee and beignets. They open at 10:30 on Sunday and there is always a line of people waiting to get in. Only about 10 tables in the place. A great neighborhood restaurant, but maybe not a destination place. Oh, but the beignets.
