    This corridor of the French Market with the Crepe Cart just across really helps a person w Celiac navigate gluttonous NOLA!!! Food was delicious and the people simply wonderful.

    Seriously, I can't even describe how amazing these crab cakes are... the best gluten free meal in the city. Possibly the best crab cake ever. I have celiac and the owner took amazing care of me. No issues. Please visit if in the area!!!

    Had the crab cake po boy, and it was delicious and filling. Great service, and such a fun atmosphere at a little stand in the French Market.

    Good experience! My 4-year-old daughter is a celiac and had no reactions after eating here. She enjoyed her pancakes with bacon. We had po-boys and they were good as well. Don't take the mixed veggies as a side though - they surely came straight from the freezer. It's rather like a foodstand with outside seating, bytheway.

    It is good. I had the chicken poboy with the potatoes. Just know if you go at lunch that it might be longer than a 20 min wait. I think was closer to 30 min or longer to get my food. But everything is done fresh to order.

    We went to days in a row and the crabcake Po boy was good! We also ordered the gluten-free gumbo and that was pretty good too. My husband ordered the gluten-free crabcake tacos and the tortillas were a little dry.

    Gluten free pancakes, sausage, grits, and yummy crab cakes. Everything was delicious and clearly marked on the menu. Quite a few options. Portions are rather small (based on American appetites) but glad to have GF options in the market. They were very busy so we waited about 40 minutes. Luckily there were enough of us to take turns holding seats while the others enjoyed shopping.

    If you don't have celiacs the food is great, if you do it's a great trick for you to become deathly ill.

    Context: this is an outdoor diner at the farmers market with counter seating, so it's small - maybe 8 seats total? Yummy food. Had gf pancakes and grits. Pancakes are some of the best I've ever had, and tons of breakfast and lunch/dinner options GF or vegan, too.

    Had the ocra gumbo. Delicious and stew-like, with flavorful turkey sausage. Served with a side of GF toast. It took a few minutes to prepare, which is a bit unusual with a food stall, but the guy behind the counter let us go find a table nearby while we waited. And of course there are tons of options nearby for your wheat-eater friends.

    It took us over 2 hours to get there and we thought we arrived too late. They were so kind and took my order anyway because of my need for gluten-free . They said they try to do special things for their gf customers (talk about celiac friendly)! The crabcake salad was delicious.

    This place is amazing! Went here for breakfast and loved it so much we went back the same day for dinner. Had the poached egg and crab cake passion for breakfast and I have never had a more tasty breakfast. The crab cakes here are delicious! For dinner I had the crab cake po boy and if I could I would eat that everyday. The service was outstanding. Fun atmosphere in the French Market.

    Yum! Ate their crab cakes 2 days in a row and had a piece of gf/vegan king's cake from girls gone vegan bakery. Their crab cakes are the real deal and all crab. You must stop by this place in the French Market.

    I was so happy to find a place with gluten free options! I have never been able to eat a crabcake, and this is the first place to have a GF one. It was so delicious that I went back every day when I visited NOLA! The staff was so friendly and amazing!

    Amazing! Incredibly friendly & caring staff. My boyfriend and I shared the gumbo & crab cake - so so delicious. Portions were small but pleasantly filling. I thought I'd have a hard time as a celiac in NOLA but this place was a total gem in the French Market!

    My family stopped at Meals From the Heart Cafe this Sunday for the first time. We unknowingly showed up right at closing, but when the lovely Miss Revia heard that I was gluten free, she said, "I don't want you eating anywhere else. Let us take care of you!" The wonderful staff started the kitchen back up, and made a gorgeous meal not just for me, but for my whole family too! We were absolutely blown away by the incredible kindness of the entire staff. And the food was delicious!!! I can't recommend these guys enough. If you want awesome food prepared by fantastic people, this is the place to go! These guys made our day, and we can't wait to go back!

    This gem of a place was worth the walk in the sweltering heat! Traveling with our 12 year old Celiac, we jumped at the promise of GF pancakes. This place did not disappoint. The food was fantastic and freshly made. The owners were SO knowledgeable and very friendly, we loved chatting with them! I can't recommend this place enough. Just FYI- it's in a farmers market area so there is no indoor seating.

    Had a lot of great gluten free options, but was not executed well. My daughter with Celiacs was definitely "glutened" and suffered after eating here. I think the owners have a great thing going, but need to train their staff better.

    Excellent service, staff is knowledgable about celiac disease and what does and does not contain gluten. Located inside the French Marketplace. I had the GF Vegan Blueberry pancakes for breakfast, then after toodling the marketplace and some other shops I went back and had the GF crab cake Po'boy for lunch. Both were great!!

    I have only been gf for a couple of years, so I've eaten creole and Cajun food with lots of gluten in the past. The gf crab cakes here are delicious....and as good or better than anything I've ever had containing gluten. Gumbo and grits and garlic toast are also delicious. And staff is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Will come back every chance I get!
