On a Very Rainy Day, There Was This Warm Cafe

Raining like cats and dogs, my husband, daughter, and I visited the Avenue Cafe for a quick bite to eat and to stay dry. It took me several minutes to review all of the various selections on the chalkboard but I finally came up with a coffee/bagel combination that was very good. My husband... read more

Needs more coffee flavor varieties. I could tell they were frustrated about what I was asking for. I finally asked for vanilla latte iced and I couldn't taste any vanilla. Pretty pricy for what I received. I only drank half and threw it out.

This is a wonderful, little cafe on St. Charles. They have the best greek yogurt that I've ever tasted. The pastries, bagels, and juices are fantastic too. It's hard to believe that they can get your order as fast as they can, and it still be outstanding. I can't recommend this place enough.

The "blended on the spot" fruit juices are to die for. Yummy Bagels with assorted topping options that ranged from cream cheese concoctions to eggs and ham and muenster cheese... Croissants with mealtime fillings... Heavenly desserts that were hard to believe they were actually healthful they were so delicious! Deep, rich coffees, espresso, cappucino, latte... all found in an urban... More

Stopped here as it was just a short distance from the hotel I was staying at. The coffee was excellent. I ordered a bagel on more than one occasion and it was good. While I enjoyed my food and drink every time we went, I would suggest not stopping here if you were in a hurry. The staff was friendly... More

I'm sure most of the people there at the time were tourists like us, but this place still had a great local feel to it. Not just local as in NOLA, but local is in like just the few surrounding blocks or so. It was nice place to decompress, forget about Mardi Gras for a half-hour or so, and just... More

We stayed about 2 blocks from the Avenue Café on St. Charles. We visited there twice & found everything we purchased was very good & reasonably priced. There appeared to be a lot of locals eating there which tells you it must be good.

We stayed in New Orleans for 9 days and walked five blocks from our hotel every morning for coffee and bagel breakfast (rather than endure the hotel's "continental" offering). Excellent dark coffee is served in big mugs. The owner has run restaurants in SF and other places and obviously knows what he's doing. Good menu, lots of choices, many things... More

I agree with the other review, first it was convenient, then it was very good, exactly what we were hoping for both times we stopped. Very good service, good selection and good coffee, pastries and sandwiches.
