Thought we would get a quick breakfast, we are early risers. Not a lot of breakfast places open early. Found this little Gem right off of Decatur. I had a Spinach, Egg, Feta wrap for $8.25 and was more than I could eat.

After an extensive search we have found "The Best Bloody Mary In NOLA", yup you guessed it at the Cafe Envie. We had not heard of the corner cafe before our research began. We did stumble upon it quite by accident; sometimes things just fall into place. Usually does a brisk business in the mornings with locals being the main... More

I was staying at the Wyndham in the French Quarter and enjoyed a pleasant walk down past Jackson Square to find this place. The coffee was top notch! The bagels were acceptable. The staff seemed friendly enough. There was an eclectic mix of tourists and locals there. I sat outside, sipped the good coffee and watched the Quarter wake up...... More

Although I had walked by the Cafe Envie numerous times in our week in the city, I didn't stop in until our last morning in town. Located just a block off the end of the French Market, it seems like a popular place for locals and tourists alike. A coffee shop that also serves alcohol! Like so many places in... More

This restaurant is near Frenchmen Street and behind the Farmer’s Market. My wife had the prosciutto and asparagus omelet. It came with homemade biscuits and hash browns that were seasoned with Cayenne pepper (it is NOLA). I had the biscuits and gravy. Both were excellent. With two medium coffee bill was about $22-.

All the reviews sum things up for Cafe Envie. Good staff, great coffee, and a very casual vibe that invites you to stay for awhile. Take note however that while the doors and windows were wide open during during our late-May visit, and the ceiling fans were doing their best to keep it comfortable, there can be no denying that...

Had a delicious peanut butter chocolate chip cookie. Big enough to share. White Russians were made with fresh brewed espresso. Delicious. Still craving them. Great spot for people watching.

This was our go-to place for breakfast in the French Quarter. The food was fabulous, and the coffee drinks were consistently outstanding. Add, free Wi-Fi, a friendly accommodating staff, and you have a perfect place for locals and tourists alike. This was clearly a 'locals favorite' spot since the staff knew nearly everyone on a first name basis. Imagine my... More

We stopped here for Irish Coffee on a cold, drizzly morning after a long walk. Did not eat, but would have if we had more time. Friendly and efficient staff, cozy and comfortable atmosphere. This is what Starbucks would strive to be if it could.
