Location and contact

Located alongside the historic French Market, Saint Cecilia offers an inspired menu of regional cuisine, serving brunch and lunch daily from 9 AM to 4 PM with dinner from 4 PM to 12AM, along with a daily raw oyster happy hour from 4pm-7pm. Our bar offers an eclectic array of daytime and evening cocktails alongside our celebrated, seasonal craft frozen daiquiris and an approachable selection of fine wines by the bottle and glass. Saint Cecilia is the patroness of musicians and the arts. In that spirit, Saint Cecilia will donate one dollar of every craft daiquiri purchase and a portion of all proceeds from 2017 to New Orleans' own The Roots of Music.

I had an oyster po'boy and a beer, my wife had wings and crayfish spring rolls and a beer--that was $70. The oyster po'boy was nothing special, the wings were ok and the crayfish rolls were good but not great.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs

around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
