This hip coffee shop is laid back, great espresso, has a wide selection of loose tea leaf, and a great outdoor space. It often hosts evens like open mic nights, but on off nights, you can feel free to hang out uninterrupted with your laptop and a cup of coffee.

  • The residents of this area have lost their best coffee house. A victim of its own success, don't come here with any hopes or expectations of actually finding a place to sit. Too crowded now.
  • Tip baristas, they are awesome
  • Power outlets along the wall. Free Wi-Fi, ask for password at the counter.
  • Granola but charming
  • When you order a juice, don't expect just your juices. They filled my up with the veggies/fruits, and had to to top it off with orange juice, apple juice, or water..... or get a 1/3 of a cup of juice
  • Best fair trade coffee in NOLA
  • Dog friendly.

  • Meeting space available upstairs for community groups.

  • Try the vegan chocolate and banana bread.
