If you're visiting New Orleans any time between April and October, you'd be wise to wear a reliable, comfortable hat. I packed one, but my husband didn't -- and he soon regretted it. Fortunately, TripAdvisor told us about Meyer the Hatter. The staff is highly professional and their selection is mind boggling. Hubby was able to purchase a beautifully-made lightweight... More

While in New Orleans we walked by Meyer The Hatter 5 times a day on our way to & from the French Quarter. I was fascinated by the window display but also by the fact they close at 5:45 each day. Five-forty-five! Not 5:30 or 6:00. That was reason enough to go in. I went in for a $20 fishing... More

As a hat guy for most of my life (since I was a little boy) this was an early must stop on our trip to New Orleans during Easter break. Walking in I was immediately in heaven, and I was still looking around when my wife pulled me over to meet Mr. Sam Meyer, who is still working there 5... More

Outstanding selection of mens and womens hats. I wear hats. I wear them all seasons. It was wonderful to see an excellent selection of styles and sizes. We bought 2! This is a must visit if in New Orleans. Or order one online.

What a great hat shop. No frill, but all hats were top quality. Prices were very reasonable. Customer service was outstanding, explains why they've been in business since 1894!! Michael was great in helping my husband find the exact hat he was looking for. Can't wait to return and get myself a new hat.

There I was walking down the road, minding my own business, when I pass this shop, real old world style, like you used to get in London. So as a purchaser of hats I decided to investigate further, and I was not disappointed, fantastic selection. I came out after a while with a new hat, at a much cheaper price... More

Super helpful service when you don't know what hat you want. Not a huge selection of hats for those wanting feminine style. But several clerks to help you out

Stopped by Meyer The Hatter while I was in New Orleans. The selection here is world class, as is the knowledge, experience, and history these folks bring to the table. Found what I wanted, in my size, for a good price. I returned to the store the following day to buy some extra feathers for my other hats at home.... More

Everywhere I travel, I look for a place to buy a new hat. These guys were fantastic! Really good selection with a range of quality and style options. And, they're online.

We have brought hats from this store each time we visit New Orleans . The quality is great and the style is outstanding. The customer service is something everyone should experience.
