Lousiana's BEST breakfast Fri, 01/7/05 8:10 PM (permalink)
Would be the brunch at Court of Two Sisters on Royal Street in the FQ. But a close second would be the breakfast served at Cafe Des Amis in Breaux Bridge. Oreille de Cochon-- fried dough shaped like pig ears-- stuffed with boudin and dusted with powdered sugar, and Eggs on a fluffy biscuit covered with crawfish au gratin... unbelievably good.

    I disagree on the Court of Two Sisters. It may be the best setting for breakfast, but it's definitely not the best food (though it is good enough). Best breakfast food I've had in NOLA was at Elizabeth's in Bywater...

      For a very nice roadfood-style breakfast in Alexandria, La., I've enjoyed Lucille's Red Kettle.

      They have the great Savoie's link sausage on the menu. A very friendly local place.

        I LOVED Brennans in NOLA for breakfast. I was there with a group of my girlfriends from highschool. We had a blast there - we were treated like royalty!! Definitely one of the best memories I have from our long weekend in NOLA (not to mention one of my only memories... HA!)

          I second Brennan's as a great breakfast.

          For a more roadfood feel, I prefer Camillia Grill. They have killer omlettes.

            The best experience for breakfast has to be Cafe Du Monde. Don't have to ponder over the menu. Just bring on the beignets and coffee (make sure you do not wear dark clothing because of all that powdery sugar) and sit back, people watch, and have a taste of heaven!

              IN New Orleans I say Camille Grill

              In Lafayette it has to be Dwyers in Jefferson Street

              If eating at Cafe Des Amis try & go on a Sat. with local bands playing.

                Court Of Two Sisters was a great experience for the view and the setting, but the food was average at best, particularly in a place like New Orleans where great food is so easy to find. Also quite expensive but again, you are paying for the setting. We tried one morning to go to Cafe du Monde, but it was jam-packed, so we went to small private bakery across street and one block down for their beignets and other breakfast items, which were fantastic. Many locals were there, most said that the beignets there were far superior to those at the touristy Cafe. Wish I remembered the name of the place.....

                  My daughters still talk longingly about the Eggs Sardou they had at Brennan's, and that was around 1969 or 1970.

                      As I live very near Alexandria I'll certainly have to go there! But I have to disagree about Savoie's sausage: there are other brands I think far surpass it. Try the sausage from Poche's in north Breaux Bridge or (better still) Bellue's in Baton Rouge.

                        The daughters began eating lobster, clams, crabs, and other interesting things, such as fish and fungi, Kallaloo, and Pepe's and Sally's apizza when they were quite young, so, yes, they had sophisticated palates in 1969.

                        While it is true that I am ancient, I missed the War of Northern Aggression, although there were family members on both sides during that unfortunate period of conflict.

                                    Camelia Grill for breakfast and a show.(I don"t think they open until 9 a.m if that is a concern). Cafe Du Monde remains my favorite people watching spot. And I thought Mother's had a great breakfast.

                                      Always get a window at the Cafe Du Monde and if it is warm enough, get a seat outside next to the side walk and get the wonderful coffee with milk and the hot NO doughnuts. Their hot chocolate is also very good. People watching there is very good is you got a sidewalk view.

                                      I genuinely love that place. Their menu ain't complicated but at the right time, it is wonderful. I sincerely love and enjoy being there very early in the morning. I suppose late at night is better for people watching but I am not a real good late person.

                                        I think Sundancer is referring to Cafe Du Monde and their beignets and chickory coffee, both of which are delicious. But the food at Mother's is HARD to beat.

                                          Lleechef: The last time I was in NO, I stayed at a hotel almost across the street from Mothers. It is a small place but the food is delicious. I think I ate there three times. Every time I ate there was at lunch and the food was great and the place was packed.

                                              Or the "Queen & Crescent" behind the "Intercontinental"? That is one of my favorites, and reasonably priced. The "Lafayette" nearby is also nice for the price. I was on a 3 month project at an insurance company in that area, and learned to love "Mother's", "Bon Ton", "Uglesich's" and several other places along the St. Charles trolley line through the garden district.

                                                Strawn's Eat Place, 125 Kings Hwy, Shreveport is a great place. They are open 6am-3pm for breakfast and lunch. Always save room for some pie. They have been around since 1944, have been written up in Southern Living a couple of times.

                                                  The Camilla Grill was always one of our favorites. I recently read some food reviews that they've changed owners, hired new wait staff, and eliminated some breakfast favorites from their menu. I can't confirm this since I haven't been there in the last eight years and I hope I'm wrong.

But a close second would be the breakfast served at Cafe Des Amis in Breaux Bridge. Oreille de Cochon-- fried dough shaped like pig ears-- stuffed with boudin and dusted with powdered sugar, and Eggs on a fluffy biscuit covered with crawfish au gratin... unbelievably good.


                                                    In New Orleans, our favorite was Cafe du Monde, beignets, hot chocolate and cafe au lait.

                                                    And we'd definitely agree with the Cafe des Amis... We started with a huge plate of beignets, then I had crawfish etouffee with fluffy biscuits, andouille-cheese grits and two fried eggs, sunny-side up--fantastic. Husband had a tasso-onion omelet with grits and toast.
                                                    Ordinarily, we're not big breakfast eaters, but it's really nice every once in a while...

                                                      I have to add Bluebird Cafe to this list... scrumptious! And Betsy's Pancake House was also really good...

                                                        If I had to choose one place, it would be Mother's for a Crawfish Etouffee omelet.

                                                          I'm gonna straddle the fence here a bit. Mother's is terific. Had a terrific meal with a lovely lady about 40 years ago at the Court of Two Sisters, my wife and I enjoyed a memorable brunch at Brennans the morning after we were married about 35 years ago. The food and ambience in NOLA is hard to beat.

                                                            I like the Oak Street Cafe for breakfast or lunch.

                                                            If I'm downtown in the Quarter I can't stay away from the Croissant d'Or on Ursulines. The BEST almond croissants and an old-fashioned and delicious bowl of chicken noodle soup.
