Looking for something quintessentially New Orleans? This is the place. Commander’s Palace sits at the heart of the Garden District, and serves up delicious brunch every day of the week, as well as jazz brunch sessions on the weekends. We can recommend the Garden Room, where you can look out over the city’s oak trees while being sweetly serenaded. The Creole cuisine here does change seasonally, but you can hope for some of its classics on the brunch menu, including a pork belly cinnamon roll (yes, really), turtle soup, gumbo and buttermilk beignets with pecans and cream cheese icing.
As the birthplace of jazz, New Orleans nightlife is second to none. This is the place with award-winning bars and all-night live music. So when you wake up the next morning with a bit of a headache and a full day of itinerary ahead of you, there’s only one thing that’s gonna save you.
Yep, it’s brunch. Not breakfast, nor lunch. Just a perfect in-between, ready to cure any hangover and set you up for any day-time activity (or simply another night on the town). And New Orleans does brunch very, very well. From crawfish omelets and French toast burritos to buttermilk waffles and crab beignets, read on for the best spots for brunch in New Orleans.
