“Very good breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

This corner cafe is vivid during morning times while many visitors step in for a cup of coffee and sandwich. I ate egg in a tomato turtia, it was delicious. I set near the bar waiting till I noticed that there is a to stand in line for ordering the food. The service can be improved.

“Delicious omelets!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

We really enjoyed our breakfast at the Cafe! I had a Shepards omelet with goat cheese and lots of roasted veggies, DH had the prosciutto and asparagus omelet - both delicious! The cafe is very open and has lots of seating available. It was pretty busy on the Monday morning that we visited, but most everyone was getting coffee so we didn't wait that long for our breakfasts.

“Bohemian Breakfast in the French Quarter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Recommended by our host at the Villa Convento, we tried this for breakfast. It was patronized by all sorts of people from obvious tourists, to students, to workers, to retired college professors who came in by bicycle. The food was excellent, the prices were reasonable, and the STRONG coffee kept us going all day! They have a huge variety of coffees, and their omelets are great. I had the French Toast -- so good I didn't even need butter or syrup, which is unusual for me. This place could easily have been located on the Left Bank in Paris, it had such an atmosphere.

“Great for breakfast or just a coffee!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Dropped in here for a late breakfast - really good selection, very tasty. The cafe mocha was awesome! Free internet. Obviously a 'locals' haunt. Only criticism is they need air conditioning; fans were not enough!

“Great mocha”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

We stayed at Le Richelieu and our first morning wandered down Barracks Street to Decatur, where we found Cafe En Vie. I wasn't expecting a great cup of coffee, and I was totally unprepared.

It was easily the best mocha I'd had since the glory days of Cafe Driade in Chapel Hill, N.C.
