I had the eggs benedict, which was good but not outstanding. $12, but not outrageously steep given that it's NOLA. Good, friendly service, and I didn't have to wait to be seated (I dined solo). Fantastic view of St. Louis Cathedral and Jackson Square.

I had heard Stanley's had a good breakfast so I stopped in for Sunday brunch. I waited over an hour to be seated and it didn't not enjoy the food or the service. Service was slow, the food came out cold and the portions were small. Not up to the standards of food in New Orleans. On a positive note,... More

Excellent breakfast. Unimpressive service, but the food was great and the ambiance was lovely. Would go back.

Enjoyed the delicious Bananas Foster French Toast. It was perfect! My son thought the Breaux Bridge Eggs Benedict were absolutely scrumptious. Overall great place to enjoy breakfast.

As a family, we naturally find ourselves eating more ice cream than we should when the kids start begging for it. So, on a hot summer day and in need of refreshment, we were surprised at the excellent quality of the housemade ice cream at Stanley. Adults will delight at the White Russian milkshake, and the coffee ice cream and... More

Stanley has great breakfast items. They do some great things with the presentation of eggs. Be aware they have a cam known as "Stanley Cam" going inside the restaurant. People can see you on the internet.

Stopped in here for lunch with my wife and kids. No kids menu at all. Wife had a hamburger and fries (which are extra). I ordered the muffaletta and fries. Now, I've had muffalettas from several different places in the French Quarter, and were pretty much the same: circular sandwich with meat, cheese and olive spread. The muffaletta at Stanley... More

My wife and I chose to eat breakfast here. The location is great and the restaurant has a nice feel. The food itself was not bad but nothing to get excited about either. The whole experience was overall poor however because of the service. No refills on coffee, no butter for my toast and I had to go find my... More

My wife and I ate lunch here twice while we visited New Orleans. The gumbo is delicious and not spicy, just very smooth and flavorful with lots of shrimp, oysters and other yummy ingredients. My wife thought K-Paul's gumbo was too spicy but she loved the gumbo at Stanley's. The red beans, rice and sausage is the best I have... More

Stanley is on Jackson Square right across from Muriel's...you can sit, nurse your hangover, and people watch. However, it's ALWAYS busy. You've got to plan to get there early. As for food...the gumbo was good, but the roux was pretty hardcore. I tried the fried oyster po'boy (even though I don't particularly even like fried oysters) at our waiter's suggestion...and...
