Everyone says Cafe Freret has the second best muffuletta. My respect for tradition makes me want to agree. After all Central Grocery invented the sandwich back in 1906. My sense of taste isn't so sure. Cafe Freret builds one *** good muffuletta. Motadella ham, genoa salami and provolone, intermixed with their homemade olive salad on a specially backed, round, muffuletta roll. Available in both small and large sizes, an average Holly can handle half a small size.
Another specialty is their half pound voodoo burger garnished/stabbed with a steak knife and topped with sautéed onions, mushrooms, provolone, lettuce, tomato, pickles, Creole mayonnaise and bomb sauce.
For dessert, bread pudding. To go. Kinda full here.
Great hospitality. The chef/owner had great po boy and fried chicken places I had to try. He called around to friends and family trying to come up with names.
The hospitality extends to dogs, too. Full place settings for a kennel-full.
