The Parkway Bakery & Tavern: New Orleans, LA

Looking for a traditional New Orleans lunch while you are staying with 1896 O’Malley House Bed & Breakfast?  Less than a mile away, you’ll find The Parkway Bakery & Tavern, providing delicious Poor Boys since 1911.

This neighborhood landmark is a not-to-miss New Orleans restaurant with a history. The  Parkway Bakery was started as a bakery in 1911 by Charles Goering, Sr and experienced ups and downs until 1993 when the doors were closed.  In 1995, Jay Nix purchased the bakery without any intention of reopening it.  Thankfully in 2003 he changed his plan and opened The Parkway Bakery and Tavern.

Just walking distance from our inn, be sure to enjoy a lunch at The Parkway Bakery & Tavern while you explore NOLA.
