Great breakfast in French Quarter?

Need someplace for a great breakfast in the FQ tomorrow a.m. Any recommendations? Not the Cafe du Monde!

  1. EAT on the corner of Dauphine and Dumaine...check to make sure they are open on Monday.
    It is BYOL, so fix yourself a big fat Bloody Mary and walk on over. Other suggestions are:
    Roux on Rue Orleans, Cafe Adelaide...just outside of the FQ.

    1. If you don't mind a bar-setting, The Deja Vu on Conti has wonderful food! Pretty much across from the Prince Conti Hotel and Bombay Club.... near Broussards. I'm almost positive that they serve breakfast 24 hours. GREAT people watching... prostitutes, pimps, and an almost constant police presence. Personally, we LOVE their food... and atmosphere.

      1. Not sure if you're looking for upscale or casual but,

        French pastry and coffee, espresso etc at Croissant D'Or on Ursulines...

        Stanley on Jackson Square (casual brother to Stella!), classic New Orleans breakfast with a twist...

        Le Cafe in The Monteleone. Buffet and a la carte quite good...

        The Old Coffee Pot

        Great choices IMO...

          Daisy Dukes. Bar with great Bloody Marys. Crawfish omlette is very good. Good value for the buck!
          Peace Out!!

            not sure if youve had Croissant D'or lately, Suzy, but since it changed hands i feel it has little to do w/ french pastry anymore. the croissants are now mushy dinner rolls.

            1. re: kibbles

              Yes, have had Croissant D'Or in the past week or 2.

              ( It was never as great as when Maurice Delechelle owned it)

              Gerard Marchal sold Croissant D'Or?

          2. Sorry I posted this as a reply to Ms Wong's post originally.
            I would go to Daisy Dukes on Chartres. Good food for the money. Also take it from someone who really digs N.O., the Old Coffee Pot is a tourist trap. Very overpriced and service was poor.
            Peace Out!

            1. I am a fan of both Stanley! and also The Original Coffee Pot (St. Peter). They are different in almost all aspects, other than both being in the FQ, but I enjoy them both.

              Enjoy,

                I like mothers sometimes in the early morning its pretty good

                1. re: joedontexan

                  Never dined there for breakfast, and even for lunch, it has been far too long to comment. Let's just say that back in the day, if the studio was going to Mother's, I'd opt for Popeye's. Mother's has never done it for me, and at any level. Maybe everything has changed for the better, but I still have memories to get over.

                    Mr. Hunt I can understand your comments but the breakfast if you get the basic things are not bad. I just kinda like the old place from time to time

                    1. re: joedontexan

                      Because of a history, I am not likely to dine there again - for any meal.

                      Too many great restaurants, and too little time.
