This is one of our normal breakfast and coffee stops. They have a nice selection of breakfast sandwiches, quiche, and pastries. The coffee is very good and I've never had a problem with the service here. It is you standard "order at the counter" and they'll bring it to you place. The wifi is also faster than one is used...

We were in NOLA for the first time this summer and The Avenue Cafe was our daily start for coffee and a light breakfast. Some of the best coffee I've ever had and I think I tried just about everything. The bagels were delicious, but the almond croissant became my favorite. I've been home for nearly two months and I...

The coffee is the best. The juices are great, the pastry, everything. The staff is patient and helpful. We went every morning on our vacation.

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.

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.
