Brunch near St. Louis Cemetery #1

We're going to be doing the Save Our Cemeteries tour at the St. Louis Cemetery and wondering if there's anything within walking distance for Sunday Brunch.

      I am interested in what people think of EAT as well. Stanley would be the other option, not much further really.

        Ahh! thanks for Stanley, I had bookmarked that website and forgot about it. EAT has some uneven reviews on Yelp, but I was wondering what the hounds here think.

        1. re: sweeterpea

          Well, you are on the edge of the Quarter so anything in there is game.

          1. re: hazelhurst

            Yes, thank you -- but particular restaurants that you recommend that serves brunch would be helpful.

            1. re: sweeterpea

              Well, in a cse such as this I think I'd have a decent breakfast that would tide me over until Galatoire's opened...I just default there anyway. It might be tricky getting there for when the doors open so you'd probably have to wait until early afternoon which, obviously, does not fit teh bill.

              Is the Sonesta doing a brunch these days? I dunno...I haven't been in there in awhile.

            I'm not a huge fan of Eat; I think it's uneven and sort of one dimensional. But it is BYOB, which is nice if you're on a tight budget.

            I would recommend Buffa's on Esplanade, which is a bar with a big (non-smoking) dining room in the back that does straightforward cafe food for brunch on Sunday.

            Stanley is another good option. It's more expensive than Buffa's but they use the highest quality ingredients and occupy a lovely, historic space on Jackson Square. They don't have a special brunch menu, or music or anything like that.

            Good luck!

              Thanks for the heads up on EAT. I think we might do either Stanley or Muriel's -- would be nice to have a jazz brunch.

              Thanks to all who replied.
