After canoing or paddleboarding down Bayou St. John near City Park, you can park your gear on the banks of the bayou and walk in to this old neighborhood landmark serving "poboys" and other New Orleans specialties. In fact, when President Obama visited New Orleans in 2010, guess where he and his family went for lunch?
Parkway Bakery and Tavern has been serving up the legendary poor boy sandwich and other local favorites for over 100 years. Since 1911, we’ve been a family run business with a reputation for high quality, delicious food, and real New Orleans hospitality. With plenty of seating and parking, plus a full bar, photo booth, and more, there’s something for everyone at Parkway. We’re proud to symbolize home for many New Orleanians who’ve had to move away and continue to connect with their city through our food, laughter, and friendship. Whether you’re a local or a visitor, Parkway has a seat waiting for you.
