We just happened to talk past this place on our way to the WWII Museum (awesome by the way). We had a delicious filling breakfast here. The staff was friendly.

This Cafe was inside my hotel and can be accessed through a door inside the hotel, it was therefore very handy for me. I had breakfast, brunch and dinner here most days of my stay. The menu is very varied and all credit to them because some days you can get a breakfast style menu during the day. The service... More

We stopped in for lunch as it was right down the street from our hotel. Situated on the corner of a park it presented a great view of the park and surrounding buildings. The place is very quaint and well decorated. Staff is fast and friendly and the place is noticeably clean. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced.... More

We stopped by for a late lunch. There were few people there and the staff was very attentive. Two of us had the applewood smoked BLT on whole wheat toast. An altogether lovely sandwich. My wife had an omelet with Swiss cheese and roasted red peppers and reports it was wonderful. Perfect lunch spot.

We had dinner and breakfast here. The dinner choices were good, prices fair. Likewise the breakfasts were delicious and priced fairly. It would be a good location for families with children.

Staying at Blake Hotel, another story, we tried to get some dinner on Sunday night. The hostess informed us that she was by herself and only 2 in the kitchen and we may want to go somewhere else. I asked if they had soup which could be quick and she said Yes, but we would still have to wait until... More

I went to this lovely restaurant right before getting on the road. It was delicious!!!! We were able to order from the weekend brunch menu. I had the @ the square burger and my daughters had the chicken tenders w/fries. All I can say is delicious. The burger was big and my girls tenders were plentiful. I'm glad I stopped... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
