“Great breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Really good breakfast and great NO atmosphere including the waitress breaking out into a gospel song at random.

“Not good place to be!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

The food was mediocre. Gumbo was served just lukewarm and not that great. Frozen shrimp were used for the po boy sandwich and fries was cold. One should also avoid the triple D on their dinner menu, pricey and not worth the price. Their dinner service was understaffed and hence we have to wait for an hour to get our food. The woman restroom is in need of a major renovation! Finally, we paid separate check but later realized that we paid for the same thing twice!!

“Great food, memorable staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We had a fantastic breakfast at the Old Coffee Pot. It took a while to get seated and a while to get the food, but it was worth the wait. The staff does things their own way, which sometimes includes favoring guests with a song. We love this restaurant, but if you are in a hurry or like to complain, this probably isn't the place for you.

“Would Not Go Back”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

We ate at The Old Coffee Pot Restaurant for breakfast. One of the water glasses delivered to our table had “something” on the outside. We pointed this out to our waitress and she brought out a new glass. Then the orange juice glass had a similar issue which even the other waitress pointed out. They also swapped out the orange juice. We both ate the Creole pancakes which were nothing special. We would not go back considering there are so many better choices for the same price or less in the area.

“Worth the wait”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Arrived around 11:30 and there was a line. Being December it was cold but they kept the line turned to block the wind and keep as many of us as warm as possible. Waited about 15 mins (went next door and got a Bloody Mary from Pat O's for the wait lol). The decor is old New Orleans with lots of character. Shirley waited on us and service was prompt. I ordered Eggs Jonathan. My friend ordered crab and corn Chowder and shrimp and grits. Food arrived timely and it was outstanding. Shirley was warm, friendly and really made us feel at home. When we left she wanted to give us all a hug. I will definitely be back.
