What's your favorite low key breakfast place?

I don't want to hear about Brennan's or Commander's Sunday brunch. I want to know about your favorite low key every day kinda breakfast place.

I used to like the Bluebird Cafe. I also liked Petunia's: the quality of the food, IMHO, helped it overcome all the drawbacks of the place.

I know Elizabeth's is a board favorite. I like it just fine -- and it does exemplify the kind of breakfast place I'm looking for -- but IMHO it's a little too over the top. (Pecan bacon is just candy coated bacon! I'd prefer to hold the candy!)

Surrey's recently has been recommended to me, although I haven't tried it. I haven't been to Stanley yet either.

Slim Goody's will do in a pinch, but there's gotta be better.

So what are your favorite places?

  1. Huevos. Fantastic homemade sausage and salsas.

    4408 Banks St, New Orleans, LA

    1. On Sundays, Martin Wine Cellar on Vets. Never crowded, 4-5 specials, haven't had a clunker yet.

          +1 for Surrey's and Panola Street.

          Coulis, Cake Cafe & Bakery, Refuel, and Cafe Navarre are also quite good.

          Ruby Slipper and Clover Grill are OK in a pinch.

        2. Blue Plate Cafe on Prytania.

          1. How "low" do you want to go?
