Loved this place, everything about it from the decor, the staff, the vibe, and the food! Great hash browns (especially on the 'slammers') and several great breakfast/egg menu items that were delicious and creative. Hard to pick a favorite and will be back to try them all!

Cute and reasonably priced cafe in the Garden District. My Napoleon (poached egg on latke with crawfish cream sauce) was good, if slightly bland. My daughter 's pancakes were fantastic. Wait was long, but not more than you expect for Saturday morning brunch. Friendly staff, decent bathroom, iced coffee was great.

I just loved this place. Awesome atmosphere. The cook was very nice and bid us to have a good day when we left. Our waiter was great, only know him by 'big bad' on our check, but he was awesome, very nice and attentive, and easy on the eyes. Food was very good and loved that they had vegetarian options...and... More

Slim Goodies was a great spot for our brunch. We had a great omelette with loads of filling followed by a stack of pancakes with fruit and cream. It was very busy (Saturday before Mardi Gras) so there was a bit of a queue to get a table but it was well worth the wait.

Quaint and quirky New Orleans at its finest. On Magazine Street in the heart of the action, excellent breakfast at a reasonable price. I had the Little Goat and Paul had the bomb. Both scrambled eggs versions. There is an outdoor patio as well as the diner themed inside. Well worth the trip

Great breakfast spot. A short wait is worth it. Wait staff is very friend and attentive. Great place to start your day if you plan on visiting many of the small shops on Magazine Street.

Best breakfast in NOLA! Everything is delicious and fresh and they have the BEST black coffee (and I am a cream and sugar kinda gal). Try the pain perdue French toast - just WOW! If you are extra hungry, try any of the slammers. My personal fave is the Tex Mex Slammer. We sat out back in the outdoor area... More

This place is really cool, nice staff, and good breakfast. Vegan and veggies options. I love and recommend. A little bit expensive though...

A new twist in the modern world of breakfast traditional New Orleans cooking with a bit of south America thrown in. A great place to cure a hangover and mingle with friend-seat in a cozy red booth or brave the wild backyard and eat with nature (friends are welcome too) the whole diner is available for private parties and we can also provide catering.

Staying in Garden District

Neighbourhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
