Vieux Carré – A Hotspot for Food and Jazz

Creole Menus, Piano Lounges and French Doughnuts


French Quarter

French Quarter Cuisine

Pat O'Brien's Bar

World-famous food and music of the French Quarter has put New Orleans on the map. At Pat O’Brien’s, a staple of the Vieux Carré, it’s encouraged to enjoy both.

This former speakeasy is now home to the famed Hurricane Bar, and is the meeting place for the Scandalous Cocktail Hour Tour.

The Hurricane cocktail was created here in the 1940s, and visitors can’t leave without trying one or two…or three.

Enjoy the mellow atmosphere of the Courtyard Restaurant – and the New Orleans Trio, allowing you to choose between Gumbo, Red Beans and Rice, Jambalaya or Crawfish Etouffée.

Surround yourself in the ambience of the Piano Lounge, and lose yourself in the soft jazz piano for the rest of the evening. Take a little bit of New Orleans home with you by picking up a Pat O'Brien's Hurricane glass. One thing to remember – and it’s actually been the motto at Pat’s since 1933 – have fun!


The Market Café

The best place to go for lunch in the French Quarter is The Market Café – an ideal stop for Cajun and Creole Cuisine. Nestled across from the Mississippi River neighboring the French Market, this café is a terrace setting often accompanied by a live jazz combo.

Watch the people of the Vieux Carré walk past you as you enjoy Crawfish Etouffee, or the Muffaleeta – New Orleans’ spin on the ham and cheese sandwich. This little stop on Decatur Street has been around since 1982, serving up gumbo, jambalaya and catfish ever since.

Order their famous Bloody Mary, and sit back while the band pumps out the sounds of the French Quarter. Top off your visit with homemade bread pudding with rum sauce – you’re now ready for a day in the Quarter.


Café du Monde

Running out of steam while trekking through the Vieux Carré? Try the Café du Monde – a famed coffee bar in the French Quarter ready to serve you 24 hours a day.

Originating in 1862, this café is perfect for a quick pit stop, or a little sobering up after a night on Bourbon Street. Fill up on tasty Beignets – square, French doughnuts sprinkled with powdered sugar – or decide upon traditional New Orleans coffee flavors. Choose Chicory blended, or a dark roast, served black or Au Lait style – meaning half hot milk. You’ll also love the option of chocolate milk and orange juice, as well as soda and iced coffee.
