From classic breakfast choices like an eggs Benedict to more upscale options as Creole influenced crepes, Lüke can fit a particular breakfast & brunch need. This is a fine-dining brunch, thus it has an elaborate drink menu as well.


Brennan’s is a fine-dining spot for Creole inspired fare. The outside is a Florida-pink exterior, and the inside matches with black-and-white tiled floors, pink chairs, and green walls. Big breakfasts like crepes and eggs Benedict are infused with Creole and Cajun flare. A tourist’s attraction along with a steady local crowd makes Brennan’s one of New Orleans busiest and well-known spots for breakfast and brunch.

Jimmy J’s Cafe

Jimmy J’s breakfast and brunch fare includes mostly Southern-styled food. There’s also a grand selection of sandwiches that are all very meat-based. Although Jimmy J’s tries to cater to all, vegetarians might have a harder time finding a selection.
