Good food

Service was great and the food was good - had breakfast here. Downside was it's a bit pricey. I paid $4.00 for a glass of milk. Ouch.

If this is the best Scott Boswell can do, it is no wonder he declared bankruptcy. After Stella closed, I would have hoped he would spend some time here. Food was mediocre. Benedict was lukewarm at best. Grits were swimming in liquid margarine. Restroom was dirty at 10am. It is a real shame.

This was our first meal in New Orleans. It was recommended by a friend. It did not disappoint although it looked like a dive. We probably wouldn't have gone in if we hadn't heard about it prior to our trip.

Had the omlet sandwich was divine. Husband loved his andouille sausage Benedict. Pancakes are served with a scoop of ice cream. Don't forget to try the grits I didn't see it on the menu but another customer had them so we ordered fantastic!

Stanley offers a superb view of Jackson Square and a just fine menu of good tasting food. It's a perfect place to linger and enjoy the view.

I visited NOLA for the first time in February 2014 - when I found Stanley, I found my heart's desire. A foodie-worthy breakfast with jet-fuel coffee and friendly, quick service. I found out that most restaurants ran on the Big Easy time schedule when I was ready to eat a meal and go exploring. Not at Stanley! Servers were experienced... More

We had a nine month old baby with us and I found them to be very unaccomodating!! They were in such a rush to get us out of the way!! When our food came out they were in a rush to hurry us to pay and a guy started to clean the table overtop of us as we were trying... More

We loved Stanley. You can go wrong at so many locations in the French Quarter's tourist areas, but this is not one. Located directly in Jackson Square, Stanley is better known for breakfast, but you can beat the crowds, and get a delicious meal by visiting later in the day. We had shrimp po boys, jambalaya, and cheese and bacon... More

We had lunch here on a busy day (although maybe every day is busy in the French Quarter). The restaurant was busy with a lively and slightly noisy atmosphere. Unfortunately nobody came to take our order for quite a while. The waitress who eventually came was very apologetic about the fact that we had been overlooked, and she was friendly... More

We had breakfast here on a recommendation and it was fabulous! My friend had eggs benedict with boudin and I had the normal bacon, eggs and toast. The coffee was one of the best cups of coffee I have ever had. It's located right off Jackon Square and also has a ice cream parlor inside. We will definitely be back... More
