The Avenue Cafe was just down St Charles Avenue from the hotel where we stayed. Each morning I would walk down here ordering coffee and a pastry. We particularly loved their Almond Croissants. The Cinnamon Roll wasn't bad either. I ordered their drip coffee and it was not extraordinary, but it was better than most coffee out unless you go... More

Spotted this cafe when passing on the trolley car and decided to try it next day. Not quite what we expected but nevertheless we enjoyed what we had. This is not a grand place and the breakfast food on offer is bakery style. I had a ham and egg croissant which was tasty. Prices reasonable We would return.

We stopped in this cute cafe for a sandwich with our family. Friendly service with excellent sandwiches. Many others were sitting on their devices working while we had a nice family meal and talked about our day touring around NOLA.

Interesting little natural foods deli operation. Order at the counter from a posted menu. Nothing fancy just healthy and good. Sort of an intent cafe feel to the place with several folks working on their PCs. Indoor and sidewalk seating available.

This place was awesome! We stopped in without any advanced thought, just needed food, and we were not disappointed! I had the quiche and salad with a smoothie and it was fantastic! I'm strongly considering breaking my rule of not eating at the same place twice on vacation... It was that good! I definitely recommend! There were simple options available... More

My fiancé, my mother and I stopped in to the Avenue Cafe for lunch after spending a few hours walking around the garden district. We were drawn in by the modern, fresh and clean look of the Cafe. The menu featured an array of pastries, sandwiches and snacks. My mother and fiancé had the quiche and salad combo for $5.75.... More

This place offers coffee, snacks, light meals, and desserts. Menu options include gluten free and vegan. It's relatively small with a few tables inside and out. I had a vegetarian humus bagel earlier today with cafe au lait (made with soy milk) and stopped for a ginger cookie after dinner. Tasty and healthy.
