Breakfast in/near CBD

I'll be staying at a CBD hotel for a weekend in late August. What are some good breakfast spots I should hit, and are there any particular things I should eat (or avoid) there?

  1. In the CBD, you may want to try Welty's Deli, 336 Camp St. It's a simple place/simple food, but it's good.

    In the Bywater/Marigny area, Elizabeth's is very good.

    Uptown, try Camellia Grill on Carrollton Ave.

    In the French Quarter, you gotta have beignets from Cafe du Monde. Or Petunia's.

    1. The Cake Cafe in the Marigny. On the Corner of Spain and Chartres. A Bakery that serves a Full Breakfast & Lunch . Great for a weekend breakfast.

      1. Blue Plate Cafe on Prytania is our favorite breakfast place in town.

        1. I second Blue Plate. A short drive up Magazine will take you to Surreys and a little more to J'Anitas. I prefer Surreys. In the CBD you can also try Lil Dizzy's, in the Whitney Hotel.

          1. Croissant D'or Patisserie

            617 Ursulines Ave.
            New Orleans, LA 70116
            (504) 524-4663

              Is La Boulangerie still in the CBD? If so, how is it?

                That branch hasn't been open since the storm.

                  La Marquise is closed, but La Boucherie Coffee House is open at 339 Chartres..

                    Not really a breakfst person but La Boulangerie satisfies my am sweet cravings with their almond croissants, cran/orange muffins, chocolate mini cake (forget it's name). Really miss their Ponce de Leon outpost.
