I had the Caesars Salad and my wife had the gambo and it was all very tasty. The waiters were very friendly and the atmosphere was authentic.

Quaint small restaurant, with very well made food, nice relaxed atmosphere (not the overpacked rushed feeling of other famous gumbo spots). Had dinner here two years ago, wonderful gumbo. Was only open for breakfast and lunch during this visit. For breakfast decided to try something...More

All the servers have been there a bit and are fun to talk to and have a fun rapport. Good breakfast. Cocktails and mimosas available. Check out the menu online. Reasonable prices for the Quarter.

Eggs sardou is a must if you come here for breakfast, it is just amazing. The pain perdue is delicious as well, and actually I think better than beignets. The dinner I can't rate, but my friends and I all had amazing breakfast every time...More

Old and slow, however great food and good value. Enjoy the old school servers, and the vibe of the place. You'll wait on a Sunday AM, however the chicken and egg dish is a classic.

We read about this place on Food Network, service was terrible, Only people there and staff was fighting over who to take table since no one had made any money that day! We walked out

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

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.
