Cafe Adelaide: sit back, relax and focus on the food!

NEW ORLEANS - It's COOLinary month, which means lunch under $20 and dinner under $39 at over 70 great restaurants around town. Here's what we're drinking at  Cafe Adelaide with our delicious meal.

The Adelaide Swizzle is the namesake drink of Cafe Adelaide! It stars Rougaroux Full Moon dark rum, Peychaud's bitters, lime, soda and a secret ingredient...you can try to guess it, but they'll never tell.
