Cafe Rose Nicaud Restaurant Review: This Frenchmen Street coffeehouse has quite a story to tell. As a slave, Rose Nicaud bought her freedom with her earnings as the first coffee vendor in New Orleans. Nicaud would never have envisioned her name attached to a business, offering besides good, strong coffee, free wireless Internet access and better-than-average breakfast and lunch fare, but that it is. The hip, cozy vibe helps explain the diverse clientele, and the place often feels like a town square. Offerings include sandwiches, freshly made salads, house-made soups, plenty for vegetarians and baked goods for the morning or an anytime snack. Beer (occasionally) and wine are available, as are fresh juices.
