Saturday breakfast

Geoff Sep 20, 2012 07:46 AM

I've neglected my planning and haven't done my research - mea culpa. Staying the weekend at the Sheraton on Canal St. - any quick thoughts for a good Saturday morning breakfast nearby? thanks!

    Not sure how you define "nearby" but The Old Coffeepot and Stanley in the FQ both make a nice breakfast.

      Thanks! Those look like excellent options and certainly "nearby;" only a several block walk. Need the walk to work off a little bit of breakfast!

        1+ for both.

        Hope that the OP enjoyed!

        Even closer is Red Gravy on Camp St. just around the corner from the hotel. The owner is a regular poster on local food boards.

          I agree that Red Gravy is an excellent suggestion and yes, it's very close to your hotel.

            Thanks for this suggestion - went to Red Gravy and it was delightful. Good food, friendly atmosphere. Would happily return.

            When last we visited, we had a very nice breakfast at Surrey's Cafe and Juice Bar.

            About a mile from your hotel, on Magazine.

                If you don't mind a cab ride across the Quarter, try either Cake Cafe in the Marigny or Elizabeth's out in the Bywater. Both are excellent for breakfast and worth a trip. Then you can walk back to the hotel through the Marigny if you go to Cake Cafe. Elizabeth's would be a very long walk, but a nice one if you have the time.

                  Last month we stopped in at Cafe Beignet for an order of beignets and a breakfast croissant. They were wonderful! Not cooked until you order. So fresh and delicious. We went to the one on Bourbon. I think it was about one block from Galatoire's.
