For father’s day, I took Navy Seal to a new spot for brunch. To be honest, I’m kinda mad that I slept on this place for so long because it’s not that far from where I live.
Messina’s Runway Cafe is located at the Lakefront Airport in New Orleans East.
Man, that brunch was an experience! I tried everything on the menu and every darn dish was great! Add bottomless mimosas to the mix and I was
tipsy as hell happy as a tick on a dog.
We had a view of the tarmac where we were sitting. It was cool watching planes land, but I just kept thinking…what if one of these suckers can’t stop? Then I started thinking about how fast I would be able to run to get out of the way.
Those mimosas must have really been getting the best of me.
I tried everything on the menu. I didn’t get pics of it all because I was too busy grubbin’. The truffle mac and cheese was the winner for me though. I just wanted to take the entire pan home with me.
The wait staff was excellent. Everyone was so happy and helpful…I was really impressed with this place.
When I got home, I went on Yelp to post a review and it seems that I am not the only person impressed. They have a few bad reviews, but 90% of the reviews are pretty much like mine.
I’m telling ya, if anyone comes to the city and wants to venture out some, head over to the Lakefront Airport and grab a meal. The only downside is that they close early so be sure to check their hours before heading out.
Navy Seal and I have agreed to make it a tradition to have either Mother’s Day or Father’s Day brunch there.
Can’t wait to do it again next year!
