We ended up here twice for breakfast during our recent trip to New Orleans. It was not too crowded, well priced, filling and perfect for the morning after a late night out. My absolutely favorite was the steak and eggs. I'll be thinking about that...More

Always visit at least once when I am in NOLA. My choice is the Plantation breakfast. It includes the calas (deep fried rice balls) that are only found in a couple of places in NOLA, but delicious & part of the history of the city....More

I had the Gumbo. it was delicious. We ate outside in their lovely little courtyard and watched people walk by and then went next to Pat O'Brien's for a drink. It was very nice.

What a great way to welcome guests...with a hug! Friendly staff and good food make this restaurant a must. Their fried shrimp and catfish are some of the best I've ever eaten.

We had po boy sandwiches which were average to above average. However, they have homemade breads and cakes (one made with rice covered with powdered sugar...almost like a grainy pancake...delicious) They were kind enough to give us a free sample

The Old Coffee Pot, located on St. Peter Street located next to Pat O Brian's and right off Bourbon Street is a great location for tourists and locals alike. The restaurant founded and established in 1894, is well known for serving one of the best breakfasts in New Orleans, with famous dishes such as the Crab cake Jonathan and traditional dishes such as the callas cakes. We also serve great lunch, with a special that includes a half of po-boy, a cup of gumbo and a side of fries that has become a crowd favorite and is one of the best samplers in the neighborhood. Our evening menu features the "Triple D', a dish that was featured on Food Network's "Dinners, Drive-In's, and Dives". Alongside this dish are other reasonably priced dishes of Creole and Cajun cuisine to satisfy anyone's appetite. We also offer a variety of beverages and cocktails, traditional mixed drinks and wines to compliment any dish. The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating, an aesthetically pleasing courtyard and a unique and traditional dining room with an atmosphere filled with New Orleans tradition and Southern charm. The Old Coffee Pot also offers additional services such as private parties and catered banquets in the river room or courtyard, reservations, and extensive one on one cooking classes hosted by Taste bud Tours.
