We had a sampling of gumbo, jumbalaya and grits here and were introduced to New Orleans. We had somethings wonderful called bacon and cheese grits. We went back for a brunch and had Breaux Bridge Eggs benedict. Oh my! Tasty, tasty!

Stanley was our first stop, for breakfast, on a recent trip to New Orleans. I challenged myself to 'eat NOLA,' so I ordered the corn-crusted oysters as part of a benedict. I do not eat oysters, I confess, unless they're smoked and canned. The first one I put in my mouth was a revelation. The richness and depth of flavor!... More

We had a 45 minute wait on Saturday around noon, but there was so much happening on the square that it went by really quick. They serve breakfast all day. The place has a nice decor with subway tiles and good lighting, surrounded by windows. I had the bananas foster french toast. It was really good. It comes with ice... More

My husband's favorite for breakfast. Great location for people watching on Jackson Square. Always on our itinerary for every trip. Dinner was good but prefer for breakfast.

It was opened early and just down the road from our hotel. Food and service was very good. Eggs Benedit Poor Boy was yum and so was the corned beef hash.

Excellent, basic food with prompt service located on the corner of Jackson Square. This is another place that fills up quickly and the lines can be long by midmorning, so get up and get there early.

My husband and I stumbled upon Stanley on our last trip to New Orleans. We were very happy with the quality of the food. The service wasn't anything to write home about, however it was sufficient enough. We enjoyed the Rueben with a side of Red Beans and Rice and bacon and cheese grits. I highly recommend the red beans... More

Had a good breakfast here, but given the reviews and advance press I expected it to be amazing! Try the tasty breakfast potatoes.

My favorite breakfast spot in Jackson Square. They split an oyster poor boy for us and we had a side of cheese and bacon grits. Yummy! Fun people watching. Enjoy!
