This place was awesome! We stopped in without any advanced thought, just needed food, and we were not disappointed! I had the quiche and salad with a smoothie and it was fantastic! I'm strongly considering breaking my rule of not eating at the same place twice on vacation... It was that good! I definitely recommend! There were simple options available... More

My fiancé, my mother and I stopped in to the Avenue Cafe for lunch after spending a few hours walking around the garden district. We were drawn in by the modern, fresh and clean look of the Cafe. The menu featured an array of pastries, sandwiches and snacks. My mother and fiancé had the quiche and salad combo for $5.75.... More

This place offers coffee, snacks, light meals, and desserts. Menu options include gluten free and vegan. It's relatively small with a few tables inside and out. I had a vegetarian humus bagel earlier today with cafe au lait (made with soy milk) and stopped for a ginger cookie after dinner. Tasty and healthy.

Good foods and services. We are in NOLA for 4 days. Our Hotel is a walking distance away. We came here every day for breakfast. Veggy bagel, quiche w salad, sweet potato biscuits were all great. Dirty Chai latte, hot and cold, were really good but very pricy when substitute with other type of milk including almond milk

The menu was fantastic with choices sure to please everyone in our diverse group which included children. The mimosas were delicious as were the quiche and salads we had. I highly... More

Tried to get in the place next door but it was rammed so came here. Free WI-FI and tasty grilled cheese sandwich. Great location on St. Charles Avenue.

We enjoyed having 2 breakfasts here since it was close to the hotel. The staff are pleasant and the cups of coffee large. They will gladly heat up your pastries fir you so you can have nice warm food. Great bacon and sweet potato scone. The vegan ginger snap cookie was particularly nice. Breakfast for 2 with plenty of food... More
