We enjoyed our breakfast at Stanley, but were a little bit let down based on it's lofty reputation. The omelet sandwich was pretty good, but the bread was so soggy it became difficult to eat without falling apart. The grilled sweet onions on it were a great touch though. The Benedict Po' Boy was pretty good. Service was fine. Nothing... More

We went here for one of our last breakfasts on our trip. The breakfast menu is a little small but packs a big punch. Great drinks and friendly helpful staff.

We try to get back to Stanley every time we come to town. The wait is always long, so put your name in and grab yourself a drink at the service bar. It's great to be able to wonder around Jackson Square while you wait for the main event- breakfast. Everyone I have come here with has always enjoyed their... More

Got a table in 10 minutes on a crowded 1st Saturday of Mardi Gras. I had the Eggs Stanley (Benedict with fried oysters) while my son had the seafood platter benedict. Not sure how anyone could be disappointed with either......scrumptious. The virgin Bloody was delicious also. Great, friendly servers!

Our party of six had the best time twice! The Megan Mary's were the best. Megs mimosa were awesome, too. Best poached eggs.

We stopped in for lunch because it was recommended by a local. Service was okay, but the food was a big disappointment. My Cajun spiced pork ribs were mostly bone and fat, and my wife’s poor-boy sandwich featured about a half dozen small oysters encased in globs of darkly browned breading. The most off-putting part of our experience was the... More

Great breakfast- crowded, but they will text you when your table is ready, so that you can shop, enjoy the square, or go next door to their coffee shop where great Bloody Mary's are to be found. Don't eat in your hotel - come here!

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.
