My mother and I stopped in for breakfast the day we were leaving NOLA in October 2016. The croissant sandwich was delicious, and the service excellent. My only regret is I will no longer be able to eat there due to food intolerances (dairy/gluten) but...More

The coffee and the pastries are amazing. My favorite is their almond croissant. I like to stop by here every morning to relax before the busy day ahead.

We found out this was a bit of a secret and came here for breakfast one morning. They make all pastries fresh every day. They were really super. Only detraction was that the staff was not very friendly. Really unhelpful. We wanted chocolate croissants and...More

This little shop has wonderful pastries that you can smell from the street. It also has history as it used to have separate entrances based on gender - you can see the ladies entrance in the picture. We did take out and enjoyed our cafe...More

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
