"Few New Orleans neighborhoods have morphed more in the past few years than the Bywater, a dense mix of old double shotgun houses, a few Victorians and small corner shops. What used to be a really affordable — though not always safe — alternative to life in the French Quarter nearby, now feels like some great hipster diaspora. I walked into Satsuma Cafe (3218 Dauphine St.), pictured, and it was like someone had evacuated the Mission District in San Francisco, where everyone in their tattooed and bearded sameness seemed to be either staring at an iPad or nibbling on some sort of 'locally sourced' BLT."

— Skip Descant, in a travel story about New Orleans written for The Desert Sun in Palm Springs, California.
