    Cafe Envie

    I’ve been spending a lot of time in the French Quarter as of late. Being a person built on the…

    Revelator Coffee

    It’s been a long time home-coming for the Nola bred coffee outpost Revelator Coffee. A few months ago, Revelator Nola opened in a super cosy spot on Tchoupitoulas in the heart of the Warehouse District, to a ton of well deserved fanfare. Each neighborhood around the city has it’s own distinct coffee shop and it was time for the Warehouse District to get its own.

    Gracious Bakery

    I’m grateful for carbs. Let’s just get that out of the way. What better way to flick off Dr. Atkins than devouring copious amounts of baked goods. There are a few things I can’t resist and usually they’re baked, fried, or distilled, just to name a few. Gracious Bakery, is located in the bottom floor of the brand new Woodward Design building in the Xavier University area of Uptown. It’s a corridor that has seen a ton of growth lately especially with the recent opening of the CostCo and the launch of the Blue Plate Art Lofts.

    SOLO ESPRESSO

    The Bywater, in my opinion exists in rarefied air. Each and every time I walk around one of Nola’s most promising neighborhoods, it occurs to me that there’s something special going on down there. Artists and artisans, musicians, and numerous entrepreneurs are truly making the area into something very unique. One of the coolest spots to open in the Bywater is the coffee shop Solo Espresso.

    DISTRICT DONUTS/SLIDERS/BREW

    I’m still trying to figure out why donuts are not an official food group. Seriously, they are a universal food in which I cannot get enough of. Since their opening a little over a month ago, District Donuts/Sliders/Brew have been infiltrating the hearts and stomachs of anyone coming anywhere near Magazine and Jackson avenue in the Lower Garden District.

    Manhattan Jack

    One of the jewels of Uptown New Orleans is Prytania Street. Whether it’s catching a flick at The Prytania Theatre, being romantic at Le Crepe Nanou, or getting your hair did at Paris Parker, there’s not much you can’t get on Prytania. Manhattan Jack is one of our favorite places on Prytania, and is slap dab in the middle of all the action.

    Blue Dot Donut

    Just like most people around town, we all tend to refer to time we spent in NOLA in a post or pre-Katrina fashion. Back in the day, when I was a pre-driver liscence, pre-pubescent, some of my fondest memories growing up were the experiences I had at the Dunkin’ Donuts on Veterans in Metairie.

    FAIRGRINDS

    Each and everyday like clockwork I stumble into my regular chain coffee joint for a triple shot mocha. At a clip of 364 days a year, and sometimes twice a day. Anyone who knows me, even in the slightest, will tell you I have a serious hankering/addiction to caffeine. Just recently I’ve become more and more aware of how much customers just don’t matter in these places. Don’t get me wrong, I realize that in the grand scheme of things, I’m only one person among hundreds of folks who shuffle in and out. What seems to be missing is community.
