    I ordered my lil' sister's fav "crazy cake" for her birthday party. It is a marbleized cake made of batters from all the cakes in the bakery section. Delicious & absolutely beautiful! Thank you! ❤️

    Sunday brunch at this Mid-City gem is a good time. Not only is there a DJ spinning nostalgic Hip Hop and R&B, there's also a delicious menu of Southern-style dishes that you'll be craving days later. Read more

    The creole shrimp with corn grits are amazing. I also love their braised greens, biscuits and honey, and pretty much anything they serve.

    Grits is a trending taste this week, so head over to the Southern-inspired eatery My Two Cents for their twist on the breakfast classic: grit fries.

    Southern-style dishes! Chicken "in" Waffles! Shrimp with cheesy grits, the veggie quinoa scramble, and house-made agua frescas.

    If you don't get the BLT, get the BBQ ceasar. The lemonade is always good, if they master the mac n' cheese this spot will be unstoppable.

    Grits and shrimp were good, as was the plantain-stuffed pork chop. Service is rough.
