Stanley, New Orleans, 3/20/21


Stanley is on a corner in Jackson Square by St. Louis Cathedral.  In a tribute to Tennessee Williams their location is near the restaurant Stella that closed in 2014.  They feature all day breakfast/brunch as well as sandwiches and desserts in a casual location.  They are open Thursday to Monday from 8 am to 4 pm.  Outside is a lot of outdoor seating and some well distanced seats inside the place.  It is really popular so be prepared for a wait in popular times.  Service was efficient and friendly.  No reservations are accepted.

Frankie enjoyed the view from the table


We were on our way to the airport so visited for a quick breakfast before heading out.  We enjoyed some good coffee while we watched the vendors set up in Jackson Square.  The inside had a 25 minute wait while there was immediate seating on the patio.  The Eggs Stanley contained cornmeal crusted oysters with poached eggs, smoked Canadian bacon on toasted English muffins and topped with Creole Hollandaise.  The fried oysters were crisp and juicy inside.  They were fine to eat on their own.  The eggs added even more richness to the Hollandaise.  The Canadian bacon was a bit mild and the muffin somewhat tough to cut but otherwise it was a wonderful Creole breakfast.
