“Now there's NO SHAME in the local hot spot. Y'all can get your basic N'awlins breakfast here and some great conversation if you eat at the counter. Also, there's DONUTS. Also, there's the best damn cinnamon rolls EVER here!!!!! It's an old New Orleans recipe and you can't get cinnamon rolls like there ANYWHERE else. Mind your manners and be right with the people of the area, cause this is where it's at!!!”
