During our week in New Orleans we returned to Envie several times. The breakfast omelets were the best we had in town. The people who work there are friendly and the atmosphere is welcoming, relaxed. We also tried the boozy coffee drinks -- a nice...More

I loved the New Orleans cuisine when visiting there, but craved a simple breakfast with options not smothered in sauces. Envie Cafe was it in spades. I so loved their Farmer's Omelet that I kept ordering all 3 mornings. Fresh ingredients, nicely seasoned, blended well....More

I am a Starbucks Snob. But Cafe Envie puts Starbucks in the back seat. Each morning I made a point to go there and get a Iced Mocha. It has just the right amount of everything. Place is very clean, priced reasonable and quick service.

Close to The Mint, very convenient for the French Quarter Festival coming up. Baristas are chill, typical nice NOLA folks. Ice blended coffee frappes are all terrific.

Great coffee and suitably relaxing atmosphere to relax and enjoy the people watching outside. Comfortable place on the edge of the French Quarter, well worth a visit

Breakfast at Café Envie was exceptional! First... at the risk of sounding like the tourist that I was... I ORDERED REAL IRISH COFFEE FOR BREAKFAST! Yes yes yes indeed... a FULL BAR! But you don't need Irish whisky to make the coffee taste good. The...More

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
