Saturday breakfast

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!

  1. 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. re: Gizmo56

        1+ for both.

        Hope that the OP enjoyed!


      2. 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.

          2. 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.

            1. Ruby Slipper on Magazine just off Canal. Breakfast till 3PM.

              1. 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.
