Really great food and the best iced coffee I've had here in New Orleans. Breakfast in a go cup = hashbrowns, grits, eggs, bacon, sausage and sausage gravy. My teenage son referred to it as Nirvana and wanted to go back!!

Coops a block down the street doesn't do dessert but EnVie has a great selection with quality coffee and tea. Also WiFi. $14 for two coffee, pecan pie and espresso brownie.

Coffee and alcohol? Perfect combination of quality ingredients or David the barista's beautiful soul and good taste? I'm not sure which I fell in love with more, but David did handpick a beverage for all four of us and even the one that doesn't drink coffee had a drink she described as exceptional... the Kingcake with fireball sounded a lil...

Great laid back atmosphere. Both the coffee and food are good. Warning for those who dislike nature: it's dog friendly and sparrow friendly. Nobody seems to mind, but those with allergies should be aware. Some outlets if you need to recharge.

As good a cup of coffee as I have found in New Orleans. The staff are New Orleans quirky, absolutely not the overly friendly NOLA people-type but the coffee is worth going out of your way for.

We stopped here a couple of days during our visit for morning coffee and a parfait (you know, to feel good about yourself before you douse your liver with booze and fried food). Everything is made to order so can be a little slow. Coffee was good and we were big fans of the Parfait (greek yogurt, granola, fresh fruit,... More

Love this place!! Stopped here for a quick breakfast before starting a long drive, and were so happy we did. The food was perfect, and the coffee was strong. Wonderful after a late New Year's Eve the night before. Everyone was very friendly and they are also dog friendly which made it a HUGE plus in our book!

This is probably the best coffee we could find in the french quarter. As a pacific northwester, Ive had my fair share of amazing cups of coffee. I am use to it... but when i was in NOLA i found it hard to find coffee shops... I happen to stop into Envie looking for breakfast. Coffee was decent, but breakfast... More

Nice trendy and contemporary coffee bar with the most yummy pastries ... especially the cookies that were honestly to die for (peanut butter cookie or peanut butter and chocolate). Breakfast sandwiches were also available, but I did not try these. Good selection of teas and coffees ... and even irish coffees in a variety of flavors. Ice tea & coffee... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
