Refreshing and light lunch. The Mediterranean quinoa salad and turkey pesto sandwich were delicious. The juices were also fabulous. Definitely would come back !

This place was around the corner from our Airbnb. Excellent coffee, even the snobbiest latte fan would be pleased. My boyfriend had a rich delicious mocha that wasn't super sweet and syrupy (the reason I avoid ordering such a drink aside from trusted coffee shops). The fried chicken biscuit sandwich was incredible and quite large, almost hard to finish. I... More

It’s a bit odd to... More

We stopped by to grab a coffee, there was a nice terrace to sit at and it was quiet. This is good coffee.

Excellent option for coffee in the Bywater. I was there several times while I was in town. Bright, open spot with a nice patio. Good food and baked good as well.

We found this little Jemima driving to the airport. The coffee is some of the best I have ever had, which is saying a lot. I had the scrambled green cury tofu. I am not a vegetarian and this was fantastic. My wife had the pancake special, which was also really good. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was... More

My husband & I came here on recommendation of a fellow tour guide. We walked into an eclectic little cafe, with a chalk board menu. We ordered peaches & cream pancakes, scrambled eggs, & a green sandwich... OH MY!!!! When our food came out, we just passed around bites from one to another! It was so delicious! We ordered the...

We walked for 40 minutes from the Garden District to find this cafe. It was well worth the walk. Cafe opened at 11 (New Years day) to a lineup of people on the street. We were lucky enough to get a table, but the service is quick so there is a high turnover rate. Food was prepared fresh, reasonably priced... More

Staying in Faubourg Marigny & Bywater

Neighbourhood Profile
Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward, the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely residential. Of course, folks around here love to go out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the festivities, well then so much the better! Home to some of the most revered live music venues in New Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining destinations, and a come-as-you-are vibe that’s as infectious as it is alluring, this is real deal New Orleans oozing with southern hospitality and the promise of a most epic night out. For endless opportunities to boogie, to admire row upon row of lovingly restored homes, and to escape the fray of the more touristic parts of town (but still live it up in grand style) head to Faubourg Marigny & Bywater.
