I don't think I've had a flaky croissant or pan au chocolate in the 10 years since going vegan. That is, until I came to Breads on Oak. The pastries were out of this world and even our non vegan friend was impressed. She and I lived together in Paris so we know an authentic croissant when we taste one.... More

Delicious cold brew coffee and baked goods. So many items to pick from. And if you're a vegan it's a bakery heaven for you!

Wonderful assortment of baked goods. Nice patio seating area. The restaurant is laid back with good variety. The coffee was wonderful, hot and good.

Vegan restaurants can be difficult to find - especially restaurants for vegan breakfast. Most items here are vegan, but there is also a limited selection of non-vegan choices. We ate here the two mornings we were in New Orleans and there were lots of choices for both days. Ordering is at the counter and seating is limited. Sandwiches and quiches... More

One of my friends from Paris says that you can tell a good bakery by their croissant. Therefore, this must be excellent! The croissant had many layers and was delicious. I had a pain au chocolate also which was great as well. The staff is very nice. Not just for vegans! Easy access from the St. Charles streetcar through the... More

The service is incredibly friendly and you can tell that the staff takes a lot of pride in their craft. The... More

Kind of off of the beaten path, tucked away at the river bend. Small setting, finding parking can be a challenge if you come by car. Very good pastries, and there is a menu of other delicacies. The coffee is great too, there are some wonderful coffee places around here if that is your thing and this place is rated... More

Have dropped in a few times after Yoga over at wild lotus. For the sweet lover, the place has it all. For those wanting organic and even vegan options, you just found it. A little on the pricey side for a Mississippi boy, but pretty decent for NOLA prices. I have never tried the sandwiches but they seem to be... More

Went for brunch and loved all of it. The price was very reasonable for New Orleans - about $20 - lunch for 2. The breads are all fresh baked onsite with a great selection of Salads and sandwiches. The pasteries are also excellent. Oak street has a number of great places to eat and drink and this continues the tradition.

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighbourhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
