The iconic eatery / washerteria is a landmark located at the junction of Elysian Fields and North Claiborne Avenues.

But did you know that the owners, Jane and Scott Wolfe have a literacy program?

On August 29, 2005, founder Sandy Rosenthal will sign and give away 100 books at Melbas’s Po’boys from 12-1:30p.

Rosenthal will sign 100 of her books, “Words Whispered in Water: Why the Levees Broke in Hurricane Katrina.
