Breakfast: since I'll miss Bluebird...

piglet3000 Apr 2, 2009 06:12 PM

Any breakfast recommendations? i LOVE Bluebird Cafe and usually go there at least once on a trip, and I'll be missing it by TWO WEEKS !
Any other ideas? (Mostly I hit Croissant D'or for a 'light' breakfast but may need something more substantial too.)
Thanks for any suggestions!

      Camellia Grill for sure. Slim Goodies is also really good. I feel ya on the Bluebird. We're visiting 3 weeks before the close. I'll have a pecan waffle in your honor!!

          I've been wanting to try Surry's...but when I saw about 30 people in line both times I've passed by in the last month...I didn't stop. Hopefully on a day off I can go during the week and it will be no wait...or at least a shorter wait.

            If you go on a weekend within 30 or 45 minutes of opening, there's usually not a line. The weekend brunch crowd really fills the place up. In my opinion, it's not worth waiting in a long line for, but I feel the same way about Bluebird too.

              Cake Cafe and Bakery in the Marigny is great.

              Huevos in Mid-City is also a good option.
