My wife and I had seen Coulis for a couple of years (since we moved to New Orleans), but had never visited. We set up at the breakfast bar and were immediately welcomed and had our drinks made (they do not have booze), but you can bring in alchol for bloody marys or mimosas. The servers all told us what their favorites were and they did not disappoint. I had the eggs benedict, but instead of the english muffin I had cornbeef hash and my wife had bagel and lox plus bacon (our servers favorite). The food was awesome! I also got a side of hash browns, which I will get probably everythime we go back. All this was arounf $30 for 2 (before tip). We will be back!!

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.

Couli's is amazing. The folks are welcoming, intelligent and attentive. The food is creative, colorful and flavorful --especially the Eggs Benicio and huevos rancheros. Also satisfying coffee! But it is the people that are great: example: our 11 year old asked the waiter if ALL the extensive toppings listed for french toast came with the order. The waiter smiled slyly, said, "They can"---and they did, all for the basic price. Don't miss this gem (esp on weekdays -- less rush!).

Served with attitude - just the way we like it! Try the Stuffed French Toast (enough for two), or the Eggs Benicio w/ poached eggs, pulled pork and hollandaise sauce over corn yummy cakes. OMG.

There was a long wait, but that was OK since we struck up conversation with the friendly locals in line. This is cool spot off the beaten path of the typical touristy sections of New Orleans.

Had a really nice Southern/Creole brunch here. Great food, wonderful service, lively atmosphere. Would definitely go back.
