Stanley (New Orleans, LA)

Located in the heart of the French Quarter, Stanley is one of the most popular breakfast spots in its walking radius.  While there are many restaurants in the Quarter, Stanley is in a prime location, with open doors looking right out onto the streets.  While I haven't tried a ton of places for brunch in the Quarter, Stanley is the best that I've had thus far.

Though their food is still on the greasier side for me (but much better than a lot of NOLA restaurants), their food looks and tastes fresher than a lot places around town.  Their presentation is decent, and their menu choices are numerous!  They have classic breakfast items with a New Orleans twist, such as oysters and boudin with their eggs benedict.  I, however, had the Corned Beef Hash (for my love of corned beef), which is just that with poached eggs, and toast.  The food was surprisingly less salty than I had expected (good thing especially in NOLA), though the toast was loaded with butter... The corned beef was fresh and delicious, especially alongside those potatoes.  If those potatoes were home fries, the dish would be perfect, as they were a little soggy for my taste.  Though their portions aren't huge for the price, their taste is much better than several breakfasts in the area.  Not to mention, they also have Italian sodas and house made ice cream and sorbets!  For visitors in this area hunting for a breakfast spot, this is it!  Fill yourselves with a delicious breakfast and hop over to Jackson square for a morning stroll.

Rating: 4/5 (Great location, good food and service, but place needs some touch ups)
Price: $$-$$$
