Yum. I'm going to start with that. When you've never been to NOLA, and you are hungry with 3 kids you sometimes take what you can get. We chose not to wait 1 hr 15 for a hot spot and take our chances walking. My...More

OK, so I'm a bit of a coffee snob and in New Orleans, that's a problem. The coffee here was about the best we had. Breakfasts are all freshly made and have some unusual dishes, including a french toast made from french bread. The dishes...More

An interesting place to say the least. While we were amused by the server singing Right Said Fred's "I'm Too Sexy" while walking between the tables and the kitchen, we were rather disappointed by everything that came after. Don't get me wrong, our meal here...More

This restaurant came as a suggestion from several locals and did not live up to the hype. It was poorly managed resulting in 6-8 open tables un-bused and an very long wait, almost 45 minutes, again, open tables. The service once received was slow and...More

The service was beyond slow so don’t go there if you’re in a hurry. The food was good, but nothing to write home about. I got breakfast, and it was yummy, but I could have gotten it anywhere.

We ate in the courtyard in Sunday morning, very quiet and peaceful. Ask for Willimina shes a spitfire! I had the eggs benedict with a crabcake on each. My friend had shrimp and grits. Very good.

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

The Old Coffee Pot, located on St. Peter Street located next to Pat O Brian's and right off Bourbon Street is a great location for tourists and locals alike. The restaurant founded and established in 1894, is well known for serving one of the best breakfasts in New Orleans, with famous dishes such as the Crab cake Jonathan and traditional dishes such as the callas cakes. We also serve great lunch, with a special that includes a half of po-boy, a cup of gumbo and a side of fries that has become a crowd favorite and is one of the best samplers in the neighborhood. Our evening menu features the "Triple D', a dish that was featured on Food Network's "Dinners, Drive-In's, and Dives". Alongside this dish are other reasonably priced dishes of Creole and Cajun cuisine to satisfy anyone's appetite. We also offer a variety of beverages and cocktails, traditional mixed drinks and wines to compliment any dish. The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating, an aesthetically pleasing courtyard and a unique and traditional dining room with an atmosphere filled with New Orleans tradition and Southern charm. The Old Coffee Pot also offers additional services such as private parties and catered banquets in the river room or courtyard, reservations, and extensive one on one cooking classes hosted by Taste bud Tours.
