Good coffee! Because they use "French Truck Coffee" which is created by coffee lovers for coffee lovers (as long as you like French style coffee...acidic etc). Great environment, good service, barista seem to know what they're doing. Great place to study/work & sip on some deliciousness... Although the seats are slightly uncomfortable for Tall people...high back that leans in...huh... Still wouldn't stop me from frequenting this place!

I live out of town, and stop here every time I travel to N.O. I'm not a hipster or "uppity" in any way, in fact, I'm construction worker who barely graduated high school. I've never had a problem with the service here. I've always found the people friendly and funny, if a bit dry. Also, people seem to get upset that they don't take credit or debit. There is a big sign right where you order telling you that. If you make it all the way to the counter and order without seeming the sign on the back of the cash register, that's your fault, not theirs. Once again, I go there every time I manage to get to New Orleans. Don't let the negative reviews stop you. Take cash, order a great cappucino, have a seat outside, and watch the streetcars go by!

Underwhelming service and decor. Overpriced, stale and cold option or offer to heat them. As a newcomer to NOLA I get the local distaste for chains, but I need better options in this city for coffee. Until then my business is going to Starbucks for its consistent quality, none of the local options come even close.

This coffee house use to be my favorite place to order a very good coffee and enjoy the ambiance of dreamy music and a beautiful airy space in a wonderful old architecture. Maybe the owner is different or I had the bad luck to arrive on days that it was poorly managed. I ordered a double cappuccino to 'drink here' usually in a ceramic cup, what I received was in a styrofoam cup that had no weight. The weightless cup was because it contained 90% frothed milk along with what must have been several tablespoons of coffee. When I asked where the coffee was I was told that is the way he makes a DOUBLE cappuccino. It turned out to be to my benefit – as it took me only a couple sips to finish the drink and get away from the screeching loud rock music that they were playing which has replaced the usual meditative tunes. I won't be going back as there are other coffee shops on Oak St.

What a cool coffee shop. This is a big coffee shop with one large open room downstairs and a more private loft area upstairs. The upstairs area is nice and somewhat secluded. It would be perfect for reading, studying or other activities requiring seclusion. There are also several tables outside which have a good view for people watching. The outside area is my preferred area, but some people prefer the inside. Either way, this is a cool location. The coffee is very good. I am an iced coffee aficionado and theirs ranks very high. They also offer bagels and other food. On my most recent trip I had an everything bagel. It was good, but not great. The staff was friendly and efficient. This location is not in an area I frequent so my trips may be few and far between. If I am in the area again, I will gladly stop in for coffee.

What initially drew me to visit Rue De La Course was the building itself. The coffee shop used to be an old bank back in the day. I really liked their espresso. Pastries did not seem to enticing but the sandwich menu looked decent. Will try a sandwich next time. Well worth the atmosphere and the espresso.
