I am a fan of this little place on Dumaine right near Decatur. Run by a group of service industry pros, the attention to customers is award-winning and is closely followed by the best rum drinks and right behind that, some seriously good and cheap food.
The picture is of the vegetarian bowl which is absolutely the best deal in the Quarter at 5 bucks. Their drinks are made to order and according to authentic recipes with some nice little touches thrown in to give you a drink that you will linger over. I am partial to the mojito (seen above) and the Hemingway, but really, all of the drinks are excellent. I hear they have excellent coffee and breakfast too.
