“Vietnamese delight”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

We had breakfast here on each of the three mornings of our stay and can definitely recommend the Pho Bo and Pho Ga - magnificent. The Café also provides an excellent variety of western style food to cater for everyone's needs. We also had lunch on one day and dinner one night that provided an array of choice. The meals we ate were wonderfully presented and extremely delicious. The staff, particularly Huyen and Lien, were fantastic and enhanced our dining experiences here even more.

“French-inspired Cafe in the French Quarter”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Stayed in Hotel de L'Opera for 4 days, and part of our package included breakfasts at Cafe Lautrec. Breakfasts was a relaxing experience -- not much noise and human traffic you see in bigger hotels. The chairs in the cafe were very comfortable; the ones at the atrium were just as relaxing. The coffee and bread basket was something I look forward to every day. They also serve vietnamese dishes: pho (i had their pho for breakfast and dinners!), steamed meat in a bun, some stir-fried noodles and freshly-cooked rice wrap with meat. The pastries were really good and authentic (croissants, baguette, etc), and they also had different cheeses to serve.

For lunch, we tried the Risotto, the spring rolls and the stuffed duck... all of them tasted great!

I must say that the cost was not that bad too. It may be expensive if you are on a budget, but if you are thinking of pampering yourself, this would be the place to satisfy your appetite in the French Quarter.

As for the service, Vietnam has been known to have very friendly people... and the same can be said of the restaurant staff. They always have a smile on their faces and they're always ready to serve you and your dining needs.

“Lovely Cafe in Great Location”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We were staying at the Hotel de L'Opera and so made good use of the Cafe Lautrec while we were there. Great menu (for both breakfast and lunch), extensive wine list and great ambience. The cafe also leads into the atrium if you want a more al fresco feel.
The service was great and prices pretty reasonable.
