Quick Meal

Stanley's has a great location on Jackson Square and id air conditioned unlike other spots in the area. This matters in the summer. It has good and fast service. The food is good, as well. It should be considered an up scale diner. at least during the day.

Ordered Stanley Classic breakfast. It was delivered immediately, so it had to be premade. Lukewarm. Seemed like eggs from a bag. Had lots of that in the Army, didn't expect it at Stanleys. The Creole potatoes were untouched after one bite. Bacon was nice and crispy. A little less than nothing special. A knowledgeable New Orlenian tells me thay have... More

Perfect location to start your morning. Looks like an old school dinner and overlooks Jackson Square. Full of locals so it must be good, right? It was. I got the Eggs Stanley because it had oysters and it did not disappoint!!! I also got cheese grits which were so good.

If you don't go to Stanley and eat Banana Foster French Toast, you didn't enjoy NOLA to the fullest. It's so good, it really should be illegal.

So there was a line for breakfast. But they would text you when your table was ready. The beauty in that was we went to the food store and got stuff to make drinks while waiting. The breakfast was very good. And it came in less then ten minutes, they have it down to a science. So this was very... More

Right on Jackson square, this restaurant is convenient to all the sites of interest in the French Quarter. The Gumbo was a let-down, but the Shrimp poo-boy was very good. The service was as expected. Overall....just average.

Stanley is a traditional diner in the heart of the Vieux Carre' in New Orleans, just on the corner of Jackson Square. We had there a delicious breakfast. A very traditional open space and architecture, informal setting, but kind and warm service. The seafood omelettes were fantastic: a great way to start the day in the French Quarter.

I'm not a huge fan of dining options in the Quarter, especially right around Jackson Square ... however, Stanley is a terrific option. Clean, bustling, popular with both locals and tourists, this is a central location for some fine po boys and Blood Marys. I'd highly recommend the soft shell crab po boy, which isn't available everywhere.
