"The service is so-so; baristas are generally laid back and friendly."
"And the cafe mocha is to die for tasty- especially on a hot day."
"Wow. This is seriously the best iced coffee I've had in ages."

Wow. This is seriously the best iced coffee I've had in ages. It's cold dripped making the taste divine (instead of brewing normally and making cold (see also bitter)). The service isn't typical New Orleans friendly at all, but the coffee is seriously worth it.

Coffee's okay and the pastries can be great, but they're often stale, unfortunately. Many of the staff are punk-rockers, which is silly, but the reason to come is for the atmosphere. Grand old building with a balcony and green-shaded library lamps at many of the tables. Classical music during the day, oldies and do wop most evenings. Great for writers and thinkers.

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.

The location has great atmosphere and architecture conducive for writing or thinking. The service is so-so; baristas are generally laid back and friendly. The products could use some improvement. This is the kind of place that could do gourmet and specialty coffee easily. Overall, one of my favorite places.

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!

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.

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.
