Pasta is good, but priced exorbitantly for simple items that don't involve seafood/meat. Staff seems to rotate frequently, and when large events are held the service tanks. It is typically difficult to hear when those events occur, and trying to get food, even takeout is a challenge.

I've eaten here twice. First was brunch—sweet potato pecan pancakes. Amazing. Second time was New Orleans style roast beef poboy. Even more amazing—slow-cooked roast beef in a perfect roux. Good as anything in New Orleans (sorry Parkway and Tracey's). Neighborhood atmosphere. Good service. Fabulous food. Reasonable prices. I highly recommend it.

As others have stated, if I could give this place 0 stars I would. I’m not sure what’s going on (change in management possibly?) but this place absolutely sucks! The food was horrible. I honestly could have made better at home. The service wasn’t any better. Interested in bottomless mimosas? Be prepared to wait 30 mins for a refill and that’s only when you request it. I’ll keep this short, don’t waste your money here.

A delightful little spot to drop in if you're up for breakfast.
Get a satisfying breakfast with eggs cooked to your style, fluffy pancakes, a tall glass of freshly squeezed orange juice, fried potatoes, and crispy bacon in long strips. but not a greasy spoon! I think they also have grits.
Also, they have a Sunday brunch special for mimosas with quality champagne.
This stuff takes pride in their service and spray down their tables after every customer.a very clean place where you feel like you can relax to enjoy your meal.

I would give them zero stars if I could. I ordered from them for the first time on Waitr and they gave me the wrong food. The ticket was right but I ordered a club sandwich and they gave me shrimp (I don't eat shrimp) so Waitr refunded me and I reorder my club sandwich. And they messed up a second time! My sandwich doesn't have bacon or lettuce on it or anything besides mayo and a thick stack of meat. My sandwich is a bunch meat and bread. And my onion rings were cold. So unsatisfied / never eating there again.

I've only been here twice, but they were both for my wife's schools Christmas dinner. The food is always plentiful and tasty, the service and atmosphere too. I recommended for anybody looking to host a party and need a location with great food and service. I'll have to try it as just a regular customer one day.

Everything in the beginning was great, nice staff, clean, etc. Before our food came out, I accidentally spilled my drink (oops!) trying to tend to my child. I was trying to clean up what I could, while holding my child, and another customer stepped in to help and shortly after, her husband came with more napkins. NO staff member even offered help until after it was cleaned up. They moved us to the very next table so that they could mop up the little bit that made it to the floor. My and my husband's food came out, shortly after switching tables. Our food was delivered before our children's, at which time I still had not received a replacement drink, I asked for another drink and my husband asked for a refill. When she brought out the kids' plates, she brought my drink, no refill for my husband. After receiving our food, we did not see our server again, until we asked a different waitress (who was WONDERFUL) if she could go find her so that we could get our check. In the end, I didn't even eat half of my food. It is VERY bland, my husband and I ended up sharing the one drink between us, and the overall lack of attention by the server just ruined the experience. Not likely to return.

Tonight we went to Cafe American and we've been there in the past and it really hasn't been a problem but tonight I feel that we experienced. Racism by the owner how do I know he was the owner I asked him was he the owner he came up and I asked him about substitutions about the platter I substituted many times before on the platter even if I had to pay extra and it was no problem he was very rude no customer service skills or anything and I even asked him I said where your portion sizes have gotten smaller I don't know they have it no they haven't just answering real rudely and talk and condescending to me as a customer in front of my family and my minor children and I just if you are an African-American or a minority I suggest that you not go to this particular business don't patronize Cafe American the food was definitely not up to par it was peer perfunctory I would say Captain D's was better than the food at Cafe American so again let's stick together and let's not patronize Cafe American because the owner is very racist and does not care for minorities at all he's very rude

I've been to this restaurant before and had the best burger I've ever had. So, I decided to try it again. Mistake. Service was SLOW. My wife, son, and I sat and ordered our food - 2 burgers and a kids meal which was pizza. It took well over 30 minutes to get our food. Maybe 40 minutes or so. That is WAY too long for a couple of burgers and a small pizza. We finally got the food. Well,...the burgers were just OK, but my wife's onion rings tasted like they were fried in the same oil as the seafood. Yuck. And, my boy's pizza was just gross. It looked like a store-bought crust with a splash of tomato sauce and some grated cheese on top..
Never going back.

There was a time when I ate her often, but it had been a while since I've been here, so my sister and her husband came here for brunch, she came back and told me how much she really enjoyed the food and drinks and service was great and she wanted us girls to get together and go on Tuesday for drinks, so made plans and came last Tuesday, I hate to say but it was the worst experience ever and it was my friend first time coming there, and she was so excited she got there before me... We sat at the bar and the guy up there did not do a good job at all, for one when I called her to let her know I was on my way she said that he wasn't very friendly and out going and she was right, I would ask him things and smile but he was very rude he offered no menu suggestions when asked he couldn't give any recommendations on any of the food, so when my girlfriend decided she wanted the Talapia then he goes on to say they no longer have that, so then I decided on the stuff chicken well low and behold we don't have that so at this point I'm trying really hard to stay focused so after try hard not to just walk out she said how about you just order for me so I did just that create your own pasta well can't go wrong with that, well apparently you can because when it came down to the sun dried tomatoes, oh we don't do the sun dried tomatoes anymore at that point I just realized I've had enough, but something interesting happen, she told him that when she got her earlier she overheard heard someone saying they were going to get some, at first I didn't believe her and thought it was a joke to lighten the mood but then she said I'm serious so at that point he went to go check and said apparently we do serve them. At that very moment I wanted to walk out, but I didn't want her to not want to ever come back, because I love this restaurant even if it was bad service on that day so I stayed, but was not happy at all 😠 I pray next time for better service..

Had the grilled shrimp and fried green tomatoes off the appetizer menu. Plenty for lunch. Friendly servers, nice atmosphere. Great place for a business lunch.

Poorly cooked food, unadvertised menu item changes (nightmare for allergy child), very slow service with half+ the restaurant empty on a Fri night. I can't believe I keep forgetting how much this place sucks. #NeverAgain

I have eaten here before and enjoyed it. Today, service was slow and my roast beef poboy was cold/lukewarm. I expected fries for a $16 meal, or at least a suggestion of "would you like fries...".. I will go back one more time, to be fair. If next time is the same, I will refrain in the future. It was over 45 minutes to get a roast beef poboy.

My only experience at Café Americain was for an event, however, I was very impressed. We only had 1 waitress for a group of 18 and she was amazing. The food and atmosphere were wonderful. Highly recommended.

This place is a seat yourself establishment. We picked a table for 2 along the wall. Waiter came over. Welcomed us. Said he would be right back. We waited...about for about 10 minutes. Nothing...no drinks..no water...nothing. Another waitress cane over and said Chad (not sure on the name) was a little bit backed up...so she would take our drink and appetizer order for him. She came right back with our drinks as we waited for our app. Meanwhile...Chad is out of sight. He comes back in the dining room to a table that was here when we got there. This tabke has their food and he is refilling their drinks. No problem there. When he finished he left again. No visit to our table. We waited. He came back a second..third...and fourth time..only on to wait on the other table each time. He kept looking at our table and walking away. We finally got tired of being ignored..so we left and went somewhere else.

Love this place, nice rustic atmosphere and always great food. Seems like a very underrated place. Do not leave without trying the sweet potato hush puppies.
