Good food; good, fast service; diner-like ambiance

Have eaten here several times over the years and it is consistently very good. It's a nice place to have breakfast or lunch either before or after sight seeing. It serves good food at reasonable prices. It can get very crowded so you may have to wait for a table, but it's also a good place to... read more

We love it here - a chic little cafe/restaurant. We enjoy breakfast here - specifically the eggs benedict po' boy, and the bananas foster french toast. We come here each visit.

We'd been to Stanley 4 years ago for breakfast and it was good, so we decided to return for lunch this trip. Our last meal in NOLA on our final day of vacation and it was delicious. It was packed and our wait wasn't too long. Once inside our server was very friendly, and the Stanley club and shrimp po... More

Visiting my son at college, we make an effort to go to New restaurants in NOLA. I saw a picture of the eggs Benedict on line and had to try them. Some of the best I've ever had. Next to Jackson Square in the French Quarter go and give it a try, they serve them all day long. I would... More

Stanley was recommended to us as a local highlight on Jackson Square. Good food (burgers, all day breakfast, etc) with a few local touches worth having (cornflour dipped, deep fried oysters). However the staff couldn't have been less interested in service or engaging with customers. Very disappointing, particularly after the recommendation.

My wife and I had slightly different views on this place. I loved it and thought the food was great, she was so/so on it. Came here mid-morning before we left town to get breakfast, she got Bananas Foster French Toast and I got Breaux Bridge Benedict (because anything with the word "Breaux Bridge" has got to be good)..I was...

We'd been given a recommendation and were disappointed that it was closed. Fortunately we walked round the other side of the building and it was very much open. A little cramped but that was the only negative. Service was friendly and lightening quick. Food was very, very good for the price.

We chose Stanley as it was the first place we came across that was open for breakfast. It was about 2/3rds full. People who arrived just before us were taken to a table overlooking Jackson Square but we were taken out the back, opposite the kitchen even though there were nicer tables elsewhere. This was our first breakfast in New... More
