Find yourself at the Civic Center? Find your way to Brenda's cozy space. Depending on the hour, you'll find a sizable crowd gathered on the small sidewalk two and half blocks from City Hall with their names on the waitlist- unless it's Tuesday. Tuesdays is Brenda's day off. Time it around weekday lunch-goers and/or weekend brunchers by going for breakfast or late brunch and you won't need to wait as long for a perfectly sweetened watermelon iced tea and a flight of beignets- which you can mix and match btw. i could have done without the crawfish beignet. But while they're sugar-powdering your beignets, you'll need the time to debate over sharing the fried shrimp or oyster po'boy, a plate of her special 'cream cheese' french toast or pancakes, and/or a bowl of gumbo or crawfish.. The sight of 'tomato-bacon relish', 'gruyere', 'chipotle remoulade', 'housemade granola' among the menu's other complimenting goodies will make you want to 'just try' everything. Unless you're heading straight to the hotel or what-have-you, try to order with discipline. Hearty southern staples prepared French-style makes for a heavy load to carry. literally. And there ain't no shame in boxing up any portion of the biscuit you probably can't finish, because it is sdg*- the least you can do is share it with a street dweller.
