Cafe Rose Nicaud Restaurant Review

: There are a lot of coffeehouses in town, but this one comes with a rich, storied history. Rose Nicaud was a slave who bought her freedom with her earnings as the first coffee vendor in New Orleans. Nicaud would never have envisioned her name attached to free wireless Internet access; good, strong coffee; and better-than-average breakfast and lunch fare, but that it is. The vibe is somewhere between hip and cozy, which helps explain the diverse clientele, and the place often feels like a town square. The menu includes sandwiches, freshly made salads, house-made soups, plenty of options for vegetarians and baked goods for the morning or an anytime snack. Beer (occasionally) and wine are available, as well as fresh juices.
