All I want for breakfast is really good food, great unlimited coffee, and a super friendly staff. If you agree, then eat here. I can't wait to go back. There's something on the menu for everyone, so that's a plus too.

Very good breakfast sandwiches and a decent cappuccino. Ask for raspberry jam and enjoy your biscuit with a sweet accent.

During our visit to New Orleans we had breakfast here twice, since our host Joshua from Blue60 Guesthouse recommended this place. And well, he was absolutely right. The selection of breakfasts is good (try the breakfast tacos!), the coffee tastes great and the place is...More

Do yourself a favor and just go!! We make sure to hit Cake at least twice every time we visit NOLA. Others may try to duplicate, but Cafe Cake is one of the best breakfasts in town.

My wife and I ate here our first morning in NOLA. We were staying in Bywater at the Lookout Inn and walked 30 minutes from there towards the French Quarter and stopped at this place for breakfast. It was about 9:40am on a Sunday morning...More

We only got breakfast food to go, but I do believe they have sandwiches as well. Make sure to get some King's cake. It's delicious.
