I found Stanley as the #1 rated breakfast cafe in New Orleans on Foursquare. I ate the Beaux Bridge eggs Benedict and it was delicious and beautifully presented. BUT, our table was sticky and my friends were unimpressed with their Stanley breakfast and eggs Benedict poor boy. Happily no wait on a Tues at 9:15 in Dec.

Went there for brunch in Saturday. My husband wanted to try the red beans and rice. Our waitress Ashley said to try the gumbo if we didn't have it before. I am so glad we took her up on it. It was the best gumbo I have had and we have been visiting New Orleans for years. Service was great... More

We always eat here when we are in New Orleans. Hubby got a po boy with French fries and boy those fries are amazing! I usually eat breakfast food which is great. The fried oysters are tender. There may be a wait but they will text you when they are ready for you so you can wander around Jackson Square... More

My husband and I were meeting someone in Jackson Square and had some time to spare so we decided to eat lunch at Stanley's, So glad we did...we had the best rice and red beans in the world.

This is my fav spot for awesome breakfast brunch or lunch after experiencing the best that NOLA has to offer the night before. Busting at the seams with cool vibes and authentic flavor. Ashely our regular server makes it feel like we are hanging at our best friends house for the weekend. Bring a cute guy with you to pick... More

The food was mediocre at best. This place is a tourist rip off. It has great placement and that is about all it had. The food is assembly line.You will not find an omelette here.

This place was recommended to me by one of my friends. I walked into this restaurant and all I saw was the chalkboard menu with a couple items listed. I ordered the oyster and shrimp poor boy. The sand which was decent - bread was soft and fresh, however I felt the sandwich lacked a little bit of sauce. After... More

Had breakfast at Stanley this morning. Since so many French Quarter eateries are hit or miss...I was happy to find the food at Stanley to be what I'd call a safe bet. It's simple cuisine that's prepared quickly and served in a nice, friendly environment. It's not terribly expensive... by French Quarter standards...my wife and I managed to get two... More

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.
