Conner Mullins spent nearly seven years cooking dinner at Brigtsen’s (one of Eater’s New Orleans 38 Essential Restaurants), but now he’s turning his attention to breakfast and lunch at his newly opened YaYa’s Comfort Food (2137 Hickory) in Harahan. He grew up in River Ridge, right next to Harahan.
Omelettes, breakfast sandwiches, biscuits and gravy, duck and waffles, and various Benedicts make up the breakfast menu. For lunch, Mullins stretches past the general po-boy fillings with pork belly and pimiento cheese, fried chicken with pico de gallo and avocado, and hot sausage and havarti cheese.
He’s even serving a breakfast po-boy with eggs and a choice of meat (breakfast sausage, hot sausage, thick sliced pecan wood smoked bacon, fried or grilled chicken).
The website lists daily specials, which include comfort fare like meatloaf, seafood lasagna, and andouille sausage in red gravy.
Opening hours are Tuesday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. with breakfast going until 10 a.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to noon (no lunch on the weekends). The cafe is closed Mondays.
