Respond to Review of Mona's Cafe and Deli
Review: We visited Mona's three times during our recent visit to New Orleans and it certainly didn't dissappoint. It's worth the walk from Bourbon Street, and despite being on the edge of a (we're told) non-tourist-friendly area (Fauburg Marigny), it's on a well-lit street just off Esplanade Avenue - we certainly didn't feel threatened by the neighbourhood. The service is fast and friendly, the prices inexpensive and the menu extensive. The food itself was wonderful - the houmus, falafel, stuffed vine leaves, veggie kebabs were all tasty and well prepared. After reading the previous review before our visit, I asked the waitress and she assured us that all the veggie food was cooked seperately to any meat, but you would probably be wise to double-check. The Turkish coffee was wonderfully strong, and after you're meal you can wander round the health-food store section and stock up on veggie and vegan holiday essentials.
