    def not trying to win any friendliness awards but, you'd be challenged to find any other worthwhile coffee in the FQ

    The place is small, but friendly. No decaf espresso, which probably doesn't matter to almost anyone but me. The pour over was excellent. Alas, no wifi. Bring your own.

    We came here for coffee every day during our visit to New Orleans, some days we even managed to pop in twice. Great espresso but get a cortado with bitters if you are feeling adventurous.

    Have yourself the best damn hot chocolate in existence, I reckon. Light, flavorful and naturally sweetened (not a sugar bomb if that's what you're looking for).

    Becca welcomed us to New Orleans with a great selection of coffees for us to wake up to. If you are into espresso drinks, from espresso to flat whites or prefer pour overs, this is the place.

    Excellent espresso from a rotating cast of roasters from around the country. If you're into third-wave coffee, this is place to go. Currently pulling: Passion House from Chicago. It's excellent.

    A transplanted LA cinematographer's side project, this place has promise, but could be a bit more hard core (weighing the water, using a timer, etc.). The average palate will be satisfied.

    A double espresso is not for the faint of heart. You'll want every ounce, followed by 12 ounces of Perrier.

    Hugh Acheson was happy to find “really great coffee in a coffee desert.” The French Quarter makes for a charming locale to enjoy a pour over from Orleans Coffee Exchange, Conundrum or Panther Coffee. Read more
