We got here just after lunch and there was a short line that moved quickly. Two of us shared a whole muffuletta, but we could have done a half, especially since we also got a small bag of chips. I also got some pumpkin seeds to take home. The girl working behind the counter was very friendly and we enjoyed being able to eat our food at the lunch counter. A must-do in New Orleans!

We had, by far, the best Muffuletta sandwich here! It was huge! Four of us split a half of a sandwich. Make sure to get here in plenty time because they close early. The lines were out the door throughout the day for the most part. We came back around 3:45 pm and encountered no line. Seating is very limited. The staff was very nice!

This was a yummy sandwich. Hubs and I bought a half sandwich, and that was plenty. I thought it would be dry because of the sturdy bread, but it was not dry at all. The bread soaks up all that wonderful juice from the olive salad and makes it good to the last bite. The cheeses and meats were top notch. In the back of the store there are some counters to sit and eat. Get a Muffuletta, some Zapp’s Crawtater Chips, and a cold coke from the machine or a cold beer, and enjoy a great breakfast/lunch!

Enjoy a Muffelatta in an old grocery store. Not sure about the spelling, but certain about how good it is.
