Best breakfast in the French Quarter

Stanley's opens early - a big plus. The food is delicious and the servers were friendly. I especially enjoyed the banana foster french toast.

During a recent "guys" weekend in New Orleans with my brother and another friend, we walked the few blocks from Harrah's Hotel over to Jackson Square to try breakfast at Stanley instead of going straight for the usual beignets and cafe au lait at Cafe du Monde. It was a great decision. We did not wait long (I admit we... More

Great food. Short wait and they text you when your table is ready. Great service. A little pricey for amount of food, but you're in the quarter so it's to be expected.

First, love the notification system of texts when your table is ready. (While you're waiting, go see the 1850s house that's right down the square. It's $3 and helps preserve history! Plus, it only takes about 15 minutes.) Second, there's the amazing food - we had Eggs Stanley and an oyster Po Boy. Third, there was the smiling, friendly waitress... More

We were told there would be 45 minute wait, but they took our phone number and suggested we download an app to see where we were in line. This was really nice because it gave us 45 minutes to shop while we waited. The wait was worth it. The food in fantastic. We had Eggs Stanley and an Oyster and... More

Stopped in 8:30 this morning (Thursday) and the place was quiet, we were seated right away. The staff was friendly an seemed to help each other out - a waitress brought us water while explaining our waitress would be right with us. My husband had the corn beef hash, I had the egg Benedict poor boy. My hollandaise sauce was... More

Three years ago I visited Stanley. It was a must repeat experience on this trip to New Orleans. Chicory coffee, bananas foster French toast --reasonable priced and served by engaging staff--what a great way to begin a day in New Orleans

My Dad and I stopped in at Stanley for a mid-week early breakfast. Everything about the restaurant (atmosphere, decor, food and service) were excellent. It's located right on Jackson Square in the French Quarter. However, this location also means that the prices are high so be prepared to pay more - even for your most basic of breakfasts.

The food and service at Stanley for lunch were good. I had gumbo and my husband had the oyster & shrimp poorboy sandwich. I was most impressed by their use of cellphone technology that texts you when your table is ready. No hanging around the door. We went to the Stanley annex while we waited, where a very friendly, engaging... More

We had a great experience here! Great food and our waiter was so kind and attentive. We got there a little early, around 9:00 am and we missed the crowd that came strolling in at 10:00 or so. By the time we left the place was hoppin'! We will return. Loved it!
