proprietor Geoffrey Meeker took over ownership of the business in February and revamped the menu to include new breakfast items while keeping many of the shop’s signature pressed po-boys. The shop was a popular parade day stop during Carnival and had been in operation for 30 years.
Meeker said in an email that there had been "ongoing landlord disputes" and that the shop had diverted his attention from the French Truck business. No word yet what will fill the corner spot.
All of the local grocery items at the store are buy one get one free through Sunday.
