Stanley Still the Breakfast Standard on Jackson Square

A seat at the counter at Stanley on a Sunday morning is a great way to cap off a romantic weekend in the Big Easy. A fixture on the NOLA dining scene, Stanley still occupies its brightly lit corner overlooking the strange and interesting historic collective on bustling Jackson Square. Experience... read more

My wife and I had breakfast here twice during our 5 day stay, it was terrific and much more affordable then the fancier dress up spots. Our waitress remembered us without any prompting. Both times the food was great, the service was great - and the location is on the corner of Jackson Square next to the St. Louis Cathedral,... More

My husband, girlfriend, and I stopped by Stanley on Jan. 8, 2016, before checking out the artwork, listening to the bands, and watching the street performers. This was our second time back and my girlfriends first time. I ordered what I ordered years ago. The Club Stanley with multi grain bread and a small gumbo (dark reaux). Both were very... More

My husband and I have been here before and found it to be a decent place for breakfast in the quarter. We returned this visit just this past Sunday morning. We arrived a bit before ten and were told there would be a short wait. No big deal at all. It is Mardi Grad season after all. I was thankful... More

We had a great breakfast! Never saw poached eggs like that! Charming atmosphere and nice New Orleans feel to it. I liked remembering the Tennessee Williams play, "Streetcar Named Desire," while we had our breakfast there. And Jackson Square was right across the street!

Stanley is located by St. Louis Basilica in NOLA and has great breakfast and lunch choices. I love the soft shell crab and oyster po-boys. They put tasty coleslaw on the po-boy, which I love but is controversial (at least according to Chowhound). The coffee is fabulous and they serve traditional breakfast dishes like French toast and scrambled eggs or... More

As essential as an obligatory Cafe Du Monde beignet binge is to any trip to the French Quarter, if you have a full day of historically themed day drinking ahead, you may want to put some protein in your system. Less than a block away is Stanley's, who serves up innovative all day breakfast options from Chef Scott Boswell of... More

We had a group of 6 stop in for lunch on a Saturday. We were seated within a few minutes and waited on right away. The food (pub style) was fantastic and our server made some recommendations of things to try in the city. If you are headed to Jackson Square, make sure you stop in. Reasonable Prices.

This was a high point for dining in NOLA. The oyster spinach salad was outstanding. Virgin Mary was perfectly spicy and loved the drilled beans! My colleagues' meals were equally awesome. We all agreed we would recommend Stanley!

Our hotel was a half block from Stanley so we ended up going there a few times during our week. Breakfast is the best time to go (eggs benedict with fried oysters!), but lunch offers nice helpings for a moderate price,,,and they have a salad with fried oysters which is a nice and light way to get a little flavour...

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
