Traditional New Orleans Cuisine in an Historic Aviation Setting.

About Us

Messina’s Runway Cafe is located inside the historic Terminal building at the restored art-deco style New Orleans Lakefront Airport. We serve traditional New Orleans cuisine by Chef Leon West, served in a classic aviation setting with a view of the working runway.

If you’re visiting for breakfast, sample classics such as Eggs Benedict or Shrimp and Grits, and don’t miss our signature homemade sweet potato biscuits. Lunch offers a diner-style menu with daily “Blue Plate Specials,” plus more indulgent delights such as Louisiana lump crab cakes and gourmet burgers.
