Our brunch at the Court of Two Sisters was a great way to finish our first visit to NOLA. Everything was superb -- courtyard setting, variety of excellent dishes in the buffet, service, live music. The price was more like what you'd pay for a dinner, but well worth it

On 23 November 2016 at 12:06pm, New Orleans time, the two of us adults had Jazz Brunch at the Court of Two Sisters in New Orleans' French Quarter. The two of us were seated at Table #151. We paid our tab using a credit card. When we returned home to LA, to our immense shock, we were notified by our... More

This eatery goes back to the 1820s. But currently, it feels like you're stepping into the 1920's. Daily live jazz brunch serves a lovely buffet, featuring custom-made omelettes or eggs Benedict, turtle soup with sherry and an enormous array of other treats. Carved roast, étouffée, and an assortment of Cajun dishes form the hot buffet. Fruit salads, pasta salads, Cajun... More

Well, the Jazz brunch was nice because of the Jazz ... The servers were nice ... The eggs Benedict were good, but most of the salads were dripping with mayonnaise so for me it was a pass. Joey had some ribeye that he said was excellent, and my very favorite was the pecan pie. Can't believe they charged extra for... More

A local friend recommended this for brunch on Sunday. We didn't make or need a reservation. The buffet was big and varied. We are vegetarians and had plenty of variety. Serve was good. Only complaint was the music. Trio singing songs from the 40s isn't the jazz buffet advertised.

Founded around 1832 and rebuilt in 1960 it is a very nice bar with a lot of history. Their specialty drink is the Bayou Bash (the original Sangria). A nice place for an evening.

A buffet so be prepared to walk for your breakfast but plenty of food and a good jazz vibe. Get there early and try to sit outside, it's lovely.. $30 a bit pricey but with the jazz it's just lovely-- very NOLA.

Been here for both brunch and dinner. Brunch is buffet style with a make to order omelet station. Dinner includes your waiter making Ceasar salad and Bananas Foster at your table.

Glad we came! The mid-week buffet included many southern favorites like delicious sweet potatoes with pecans, Jumbalaya rice, seafood, meats, salads, and yummy desserts. Considering the price of local dinner entrees, it was reasonable at $30/person. We had the brunch at 1:30 pm, so only needed a light snack for dinner. The outdoor area is lovely with lots of trees...

With the only daily jazz brunch in town, Court of Two Sisters is famed for its beautiful wisteria-blanketed courtyard and soothing fountains.

Reservations can be made online and are recommended, especially for patio seating.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
