We stumbled upon this place after reading a few reviews on Trip Advisor and decided it would be worth a stop for breakfast. When we arrived we were pleased to find that there was no line and the small bakery was crawling with locals (who were friendly and welcoming of us tourists). Although the shop is called a bakery, they... More

I was parked a couple blocks from Cake Cafe in the historic Marigny district of New Orleans and as I was beginning a 7 hour drive, I stopped in to grab a to-go. It is a fairly plain and undecorated historic "corner store" with friendly people inside and cooks who are inventive with attention to detail. I had a kind... More

For us its a nice walk (wheel for me in my manual wheel chair) from the French Quarter over through the Marigny to the Cake Cafe. Just get on Chartres Street in the Quarter and head east until you get to the 2400 block, sits right on the corner. However it may be a little far for those that have... More

Just like many of the small cafe's in NO, this place can be packed however they do an excellent job, to get you in and out. Nice, helpful service. Food is very good. For an extra $1 with any meal you can add a cupcake.

Before we came to NOLA for a weeks vacation, my fiancé and I heard from a local friend of his that this was the best breakfast in town. We could not agree more! We had stuffed bagels, a pastry and cinnamon rolls. All were spectacular, but we really really enjoyed the stuff bagels. Cannot recommend this place highly enough!

My friend and I just happened across this on our way to the French Quarter. Our host at the home we were renting mentioned it but we forgot to write down the location so we were happy that we found it. We were looking for a light breakfast as we were doing a food tour later in the day and... More

We enjoyed breakfast here so much that we went back three times. They have everything from standard fare to some very creative options. We enjoyed being able to sit outdoors. The staff is very efficient and friendly. Great neighborhood café!

We had breakfast here on our last day in NOLA. It was the best breakfast all week - and we had some pretty good breakfasts!! I had the biscuits and gravy and had to try the deep fried potato salad. Wow, what a treat!!! Delicious! My husband had an omelet and he really enjoyed it. The coffee was very good... More
