Things to do in New Orleans


Frady’s One Stop


There are very few places in the Bywater that have the neighborhood charm comparable to Frady’s One Stop Food Store.  Its basically a crowded hallway with a counter and a kitchen, but is a vital organ of the community.  Their kitchen serves the classics;  po-boys, beans and rice, macaroni, porckchops, dirty rice, chicken, sausage and all day breakfast.  The catcher for me is the “grumpy old man”  which consists of 2 eggs any way, potatoes or corn grits, toast and your choice of meat all for $5.50.

This tiny corner stop is always bustling with folks coming in and out with unmatched banter between workers and regulars.  It has a timeless appeal that makes you want to slow down and speed up at the same time.  The ideal spot to grab a smoke and a paper, order some breakfast and observe the quiet, eccentric madness of the Bywater neighborhood.
