One of my friends who is a NOLA native recommended Coulis and I'm so glad he did! We would have missed a great breakfast had we driven by because there is nothing appealing about the exterior to make you want to stop and eat there. When we finally found a parking space (street parking only) we joined what appeared to be half of NOLA's law enforcement contingent was there eating...always a great endorsement because those guys/gals know food!
I ordered an omelet and cheese grits. Because I can't do wheat, I had to order a second choice for side and was amused to see black beans as an option. Okay...when in Rome. Although I would never have considered that combination had they not suggested it, it was great!
The service wasn't great as the servers are typical in those great eateries that locals love thus high volume business. You're almost afraid to ask for water or coffee refill because they might snarl at you, but the food made up for what Coulis lacks in ambiance and service. I'd go back in a heartbeat.
