Cafe Rose Nicaud Restaurant Review

: In the midst of Faubourg Marigny’s busiest street, packed with some of the best music clubs in town and great casual restaurants, is Café Rose Nicaud. 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.
