The Camellia Grill is an iconic diner located in uptown New Orleans. It has been opened since 1946. It was closed for a few years after Katrina, but is now back in action. Classic and tasty diner food is served, while patrons are seated around the counter. The food is prepared right there behind the counter. Seating is limited, so sometimes a line can form, although we walked right up on our recent visit.
It is a great place for an affordable meal. I attended college just down the street. It is unpretentious and full of friendly employees. From morning until night, one can order pancakes, omelettes, burgers, sandwiches, dessert, and more. My daughter gave the delicious pancakes and the red beans and rice a big thumbs up! If you find yourself in uptown New Orleans looking for a tasty and affordable meal, I recommend a visit to the Camellia Grill!
