We ate in the courtyard in Sunday morning, very quiet and peaceful. Ask for Willimina shes a spitfire! I had the eggs benedict with a crabcake on each. My friend had shrimp and grits. Very good.

We have family in from out of town and went for breakfast. Restaurant had a lot of nerve. There were only four of us for breakfast and they automatically added their gratuity. Watch a bill make sure you don't double tip them.

We walked right by the place and probably wouldn't have stopped except it came up on a google search for breakfast spots. If you are looking for a great place to sit and have a traditional New Orleans breakfast, this is the place. Husband had...More

Their website didn't mention that they were closed on Wednesdays in September - so after a long trip, hard-to-find parking, and arriving hungry, no breakfast. Oh well...it is the Quarter, after all, so we didn't starve. But I really like their breakfasts!

My favorite breakfast in NOLA. The staff is amazing and the breakfast is great. You can have a simple breakfast of just eggs or turn it up New Orleans style. It is up to you. We go to the Old Coffee Pot every trip and...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

The Old Coffee Pot, located on St. Peter Street located next to Pat O Brian's and right off Bourbon Street is a great location for tourists and locals alike. The restaurant founded and established in 1894, is well known for serving one of the best breakfasts in New Orleans, with famous dishes such as the Crab cake Jonathan and traditional dishes such as the callas cakes. We also serve great lunch, with a special that includes a half of po-boy, a cup of gumbo and a side of fries that has become a crowd favorite and is one of the best samplers in the neighborhood. Our evening menu features the "Triple D', a dish that was featured on Food Network's "Dinners, Drive-In's, and Dives". Alongside this dish are other reasonably priced dishes of Creole and Cajun cuisine to satisfy anyone's appetite. We also offer a variety of beverages and cocktails, traditional mixed drinks and wines to compliment any dish. The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating, an aesthetically pleasing courtyard and a unique and traditional dining room with an atmosphere filled with New Orleans tradition and Southern charm. The Old Coffee Pot also offers additional services such as private parties and catered banquets in the river room or courtyard, reservations, and extensive one on one cooking classes hosted by Taste bud Tours.
