Your Top FIVE places in NOLA for Breakfast only!

Linda's question got me thinking...so I'm gonna ask this about breakfast, lunch and dinner!

If you had 5 mornings to spend in NOLA for breakfast and could not repeat any restaurant, where would you have your top 5 breakfasts?

Cake Cafe, Stanley, Li'l Dizzy's Cafe ... all three visited for the first time on recent trip, all three will be revisited in May. And again, because my mind is in a "get ready for work" mode, I am probably forgetting some very obvious choices for the other two.

Red Gravy. Clover Grill. Johnny Whites. Old Coffee Pot. Exec Lounge at the Hilton Riverside.

OK, now I get to explain two of my choices:

Johnny Whites doesn't serve breakfast. I'm not even sure they serve food. But if I want just a Bloody Mary for breakfast, that's where I head. Always an interesting crowd of early-morning locals in there.

Hilton Executive Lounge: Ok, this one shouldn't count, since it's not open to everyone. But if you get a chance....30th floor. Overlooks the river on one side, the city on the other. There is a little alcove that juts out from the building with maybe 3-4 tables. Floor-to-ceiling glass...you feel like you're suspended in mid-air, and then the sun comes up over the river...(I'm an early riser). It's fantastic.
