My fresh squeezed grapefruit Juice, latte and spinach salad were all spot on. The coffee has slightly burned, yet smooth flavor. Again -good for European ( or seattlean) coffee drinkers! I considered getting Another salad to go, the mild goat cheese, strawberries & walnuts played together so well! There are plenty of outlets for your laptop so this could double... More

we needed a change from the busy french quarter for breakfast and we found this place. The Avenue Cafe is a nice cafe with coffee, baked goods, bagels (with different flavor cream cheese), and sandwichs. It was a wise choice for breakfast. Everything was great

Instead of breakfast we opted to have coffee, bananas and bakery goods. The bakery goods were delicious. I had some really good small chocolate cakes. I would definitely go back to this bakery.

Coffee shop - healthy food. Low key service, as happy go lucky people. Don't be in a hurry ! Not in a rush cafe. So settle in and get the most out of it, relax, use there wifi as I did.

Just 2 blocks away from our b&b we decided to try the place since the restaurant next door didn't seem busy or even open and the avenue was open 24/7 which is a plus after a long day of walking, site seeing etc. Upon entering and being seated time began to crawl between being served or even being noticed when...

This place was a block away from my hotel and I went there daily to get fresh juice and baked goods. The best thing was that they always had a few vegan options which were as good as the non-vegan baked goods.

We went for dinner as there didn't seem to be too much family orientated place on the Charles Ave. stretch. The staff were nice, made an awesome iced coffee and had our meals out in a good amount of time. The artwork around the café is very interesting & if we had more cash, we would have purchased a product.
