Small cafe with musical adornment, the food is stellar. Their several styles of Eggs Benedict are definitely a safe bet, and you can't go wrong with their sweet buttercream pancakes.

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
