3 of us had a good breakfast. Food was fine - standard American and we paid good money for it After paying, my wife went to the rest room while me & daughter waited at table. There is just 1 ladies restroom facility so my wife had to wait in queue for a few minutes. In the meanwhile the server told me & daughter we cant wait at table & have to leave the table & wait at door. This was a matter of a few minutes only & this has never happened to me before.
Just an indication of callous inconsiderate greed.

We came here for a late brunch (2pm) and easily got a table. The food was good, the drinks were mixed well. I ordered the Eggs Benedict Po' Boy and it was delicious. We also had regular and sweet potato fries (both cooked perfectly) and the gumbo (very yummy!). We weren't sure if it would live up to the hype/location but it was worth the trip!

Before you head out for your day off exploring, you should stop into Stanley, which is on Jackson Square.

Great bloody Mary's and excellent coffee, the corned beef hash is on point, and the omelet sandwich is awesome!

We sat at the counter, and got a great view of the kitchen. Fast service, good food, and the young lady at the front didn't make me feel like an idiot for asking for directions.

Good eats if you're looking for yummy breakfast after a night on Bourbon Street.

This restaurant was down the street from our hotel, so we decided to go. We went around 9:30 am and there was no wait. We were seated immediately by the hostess. We sat next to the windows, so we could watch all the people in Jackson Square. This was a great place to people watch. Our server was very attentive and friendly. We ordered poached eggs and creole breakfast potatoes. Our food came out very quickly. Our food was seasoned well and very tasty. I was pleasantly surprised with our food and the restaurant.

We had been to Stanley during our prior visits to NOLA and wanted to try brunch there, again. Despite being a busy Easter morning in Jackson Square, the waited time was as promised and moments after receiving a text message we were seated by a front window. Our service was efficient. Drinks arrived quickly (recommend a twist on the Mimosa -- try with one of their Italian sodas instead of OJ -- the blood orange mimosa was excellent) as did our meals. The omelette sandwich was towering with ham and good to the last bite; the bacon and cheese grits were terrific (not mushy and soggy) and so flavorful. Our server was frequently checking in to see all was good, and it was. She was one of the best servers we had all trip. Recommend highly for a meal with local flair, reasonably priced, and in a great location.
