We were recommended to this restaurant by Tracy Rich. It did not disappoint. Food was excellent and abundant. I ordered the Corned Beef Hash and my wife had the banana foster french toast. Both were excellent. I would recommend this restaurant to all my friends.

This was my first time at Stanley and I will definitely be coming back. The service was on point, the meal was impeccable. I had fried soft-shell crab, shrimp, roasted potatoes and eggs over medium.

The food here was very average. The wait time was over 2 hours. I could've easily went to iHOP and had a better meal.

We come here every time we are in New Orleans... Consistent everything, from eggs and boudin to one of the best Bloody Mary's around, on top of being one of the best people watching locations in the city. Can't miss if you have the time..

A very pretty restaurant, but pricey for brunch! My boyfriend and I each got an eggs benedict, which came out to about $36. I wouldn't mind if the meal matched the price. Unfortunately, it didn't. No sides with your benedict -- just two eggs, two slices of ham, an English muffin and you choice of meat. I got fried oysters... More

Great view of Jackson Square and very good lunch at a great price. Wish we had more time to stay and hang out. Our server was great and very attentive of us being overheated from the hot afternoon heat.

Stanley is a nice little cafe in a great location frequented by most tourists to New Orleans. As such, it is generally very crowded with a long wait. While the food is good here, rarely is it worth waiting for a table in the culinary capital New Orleans where I was born and raised. There are too many culinary choices... More

You MUST eat here for breakfast if you are in town. It is just off the square next to the Cathedral. It is fantastic!! Come hungry and come early; it may be a wait to get a table but worth it. The food is great! We had among ohter things the Bananas foster french toast! Decadent! We also had standard... 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.
