Sunday Brunch or Lunch before the Saints Game
We are bringing friends over for the game this weekend, and they have not spent much time in New Orleans. We want to have a casual, low key lunch/brunch before the game. What do y'all suggest?
Refuel (riverbend), Surrey's (mag at Euterpe), Ruby Slipper (mid-city) for something casual. Make no mistake...these places aren't your typical eggs and bacon spots (but their eggs and bacon are great!). You'll find great brunch specials like pumpkin pancakes, grits and grillades, seafood omelets, etc. Check out their websites, too. I hear Coulis (on Prytania) is pretty good, but I have not yet tried it.

Thanks for the suggestions! Our guests wanted to walk around the FQ so we went to the Coffee Pot! It was excellent. I had the Eggs Jonathan, and even though they forgot the hollandaise they were very good. The lost bread looked interesting, but i didn't taste. My husband had the Creole Eggs and they were devine.
AND we were serenaded by one of the waitresses! We will be back!
