Breakfast in New Orleans?

Assuming you wake up on time for breakfast, what are the local specialties? I have 3 mornings and I don't want to waste a single one.

    Ok, so some of the others answers you have gotten are pretty spot on. As a New Orleans native I figured I'll just expand on their answers and tell you my favorites of the places listed and what you should get to eat from each.

    Atchafalaya is a great one. They have the best gumbo and great brunch options. Not to mention on Sundays they usually have a small band playing and a build your own Bloody Mary bar. You'll see some pros bring a folding chair cause the wait is generally a hour, but with the bloody mary bar its kind of a fun party outside til you get sat.

    Atchafalaya

    Surrey's Juice Bar has two locations and is a local's favorite. Don't be fooled by the juice bar in the name. This place consistently turns out some of the best breakfast food in the city. All the locals know it and chances are you'll probably see someone you met the night before in there the next day trying to eat away their hangover too. I highly recommend the Shrimp and Grits and a large banana pancake for the table.

    Surrey's Juice Bar

    Satsuma is a cool place in the new happening area of nola called The Bywater. I always get the One Eyed Jack. Delicious!

    Not on this list is one of my favorite places... Stein's Market & Deli. This place is a great little Jewish deli that makes some awesome breakfast bagels. Nueske bacon, egg and cheese on a everything bagel... yes please! The workers are a bit ornery, but to be honest it kind of makes the place charming in a weird way that only works in New Orleans.

    Stanley This is bordering on a level of too touristy but the Fried Oysters eggs benedict is top notch.

    Stanley

    Slim Goodies Diner is your standard dinner breakfast. This place was serving up food to the National guard right after Katrina. One of the first places back up and running. I always get the Doc Horn when I go. Be warned, it is cash only.

    Alright, I think these are some solid spots to try out. I like to travel like a local and blend in so these are all real local spots. Be a New Orleanian. Hope this helps.

    I really enjoyed this place called Elizabeth's in the Bywater section. The last few times it's been hit or miss. It's be almost a year since I went last, so maybe it's improved. The serve Praline Bacon, which is pretty delicious!

    Remembered some places.. Slim Goodies Diner and Surrey's Juice Bar Slim Goodies reminds me of your typical diner. It's one of the places where the locals eat so you know its good. I would recommend it first, then Surrey's, the Elizabeth's.

    The best breakfast I have ever had anywhere is at Brennan's Restaurant & my wife also agrees! It is a long process and go hungry. It is fantastic. Plan on doing a lot of walking afterwards or going back to your hotel to nap.

    How fast of a breakfast do you want?

    1) For a once-in-a-lifetime breakfast, hit up Brennan's Restaurant It's a 3 course breakfast, one that will last until dinner, and it is quite possibly the most amazing experience. You sit in an old mansion, have an amazing breakfast, and to finish it off, can choose to have Banana's Foster at the place where it originated. It's made at the table, with a spectacular show of flames and the smells of perfectly caramelized bananas.

    2) Café du Monde is a great second choice. Don't be fooled by the long line, it moves really fast. Order the traditional beignets and some chickory coffee and you're set.

    3) Café Beignet is amazing too. We had a "Beignet" off and got some from both places. They were very different. These were a little denser but a bit crispier.

    Bah. Café du Monde is a rookie move. Well, it's fine, but only because you ought to check the box. For a great/homey breakfast, hit:

    • Cake Cafe & Bakery - Amazing shrimp and grits. We went back twice. Their boudin and eggs is also quite solid. They have homemade jam that tastes mega-fresh and biscuits that are out of this world.
      image from flickr.com
    • Elizabeth's - great smoked porkchops and eggs, awesome benedicts, and praline bacon. Bonus points for being open on weekdays.
    • Stanley and Satsuma are also really solid.

    Stanleyis a great option. I had some bananas foster French toast there during one of my visits and it was delicious. Bring your sweet tooth! Also, Magnolia Grill is a great diner for breakfast or lunch. Lines can be long, but it is worth it. I hope this is helpful. I don't live in NOLA, but it is one of my favorite places in the world!

    First off, Trolley Stop Cafe. The food is ok but it's kind of a historic place (not officially or anything)http://www.yelp.com/biz/trolley-stop-new-orleans

    Next Surrey's Juice Bar. This place has 3 locations. My favorite one is linked. Try the boudin biscuit or banana pancakes. http://www.yelp.com/biz/surreys-caf%C3%A9-and-juice-bar-new-orleans-2

    My last recommendation is The Ruby Slipper. This place also has a few locations and I have linked my favorite (& the only one that I've been to) Everything is good including the bloody mary and screw drivers http://www.yelp.com/biz/the-ruby-slipper-cafe-new-orleans-4
