On St. Charles Avenue, in an old, converted gas station is the Trolley Stop Cafe. It is located at Streetcar Stop #12 and is open from 6am to 2pm most days of the week. Every time I’ve driven by here, I’ve seen at least NOPD car in the parking lot, so you know the food has got to be good and filling.
It serves lot of standard diner fare with a terrific $2.99 breakfast special (2 eggs, bacon, grits and toast) if you arrive between 6am and 8:30am. We went at lunch time and my Mom had the patty melt–good, all beef burger with grilled onions and cheese on toasted rye bread. Melt in your mouth good. I had the regular cheeseburger–good size patty of Angus beef, very juicy and flavorful. Our food plus three Buds ran us just under $30, so it is cheapish eats and, with it back to being 24 hours on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, the perfect place to stave off a hangover with some drunk dining.
