They have this seafood Eggs Benedict, it's amazing!!! Went back everyday for it. They have a basic one which is just the lightly breaded soft shell crab($15) and the seafood one which had the crab, fried oysters and fried shrimp($20). They also have some regular menu items which are to as pricey. But still great. I mean my girlfreind threatened... More

As a frequent visitor to New Orleans I always try something new even if it's just a different dish at the same restaurant. This morning I sat by myself for breakfast at the bar as I waited to leave for the airport. The service was prompt, the food was freshly prepared and immediately delivered. The bartender did a great job... More

This was the first café that we saw when we arrived in the French Quarter. It looked beautiful with its ceiling to floor windows and dark woodwork. The dining area is spacious yet cozy. Our view of the activity outside was spectacular. As for the food, the gumbo was full of flavor and not too spicy. My favorite dish was... More

Have had a couple of visits here for breakfast over the last couple of days. Good choice of menu, on the breakfast items, my only complaint is that the food was luke warm. Needs to be far hotter than it is. Reasonable prices, good service on both occasions.

The Stanley was recommended and we were not disappointed. Sweetheart of a server and the food was fantastic. The bacon was cooked to perfection, the potatoes were infused with a special sauce that was yummy and the bloodys were spot on!

We visited Stanley after hearing good reviews. I ordered the Bananas Foster French Toast. It was good; however, the service was poor. She didn't take everyone's drink order and really only came back to our table to deliver food. With so many good places to eat there, I probably will not be back.

Went with my husband during our stay in New Orleans. Food was nice, though the fries tasted like they'd been frozen for a while. The Italian soda I had was not to my taste at all as it was super sweet and artificial tasting. Nowhere to rave about but staff were pleasant and food was nice.

Prime location, good (apologetic) waitress, but powdered eggs in the famed French Quarter?!?!?!? Seriously?!?!? My friend and I both ordered the only dish with scrambled eggs on the menu, and were disgusted to find that they were powdered eggs. We are both nurses and are all too familiar with hospital cafeteria powdered eggs, so we identified them even before we... More

If you are looking for a great breakfast with a new Orleans twist, this is your place. I had the eggs Stanley one morning and the eggs stella a different morning. Basically an eggs benedict with either a soft shell crab or oysters respectively. They were both really, really good. Service was excellent and only a short walk from the... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
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 across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
