This rustic, chic spot is a local favorite for brunch, but it is also a great option for lunch or dinner as well. There can be a bit of a wait for brunch on the weekends, but it is definitely worth it. If you want something to do in the meantime, other than order a drink at the bar of course, explore this vibrant section of Magazine Street.

Lilly's Cafe

Some of the best pho in the city

Like much of Vietnam, New Orleans is subtropical, Catholic and nearly surrounded by water. So when the Vietnam War ended, many Vietnamese fled to New Orleans, bringing their food and traditions with them. Therefore the best pho in the city is an often debated topic, and Lilly's is alway near the top, if not in the number one spot. While the bowls of pho are massive, if you think you can manage, get an order of roasted pork spring rolls as well. They are closed on Sunday, but the delicious Pho Noi Viet isn't and it is only two blocks up Magazine.

Even the pickiest family members will find something they like on their large menu. It can get pretty busy on weekends, especially for their very popular Sunday brunch that has $15 bottomless mimosas. But it is worth the wait, so grab yourself a drink and hang out until your table is ready.

St. Roch Market

Hip food hall with many food and drink options

This food hall - selling everything from oysters, to entrees, to drinks - lives in the former home of a public food market. From 1875 through the mid 20th century, St. Roch Market was a multi-vendor food market that sold everything from prepared meals to produce. Since then it has gone through many iterations, including supermarket and Chinese restaurant, until Katrina hit in 2005 and did severe damage to the structure. After sitting vacant until 2012, the city stepped in to try to obtain funding in order to restore the building to its former glory. The current iteration of St. Roch Market opened in August 2014. The same people run Auction House Market downtown.

This trendy bistro serves adventurous, beautifully plated, southern-leaning fare, run by the James Beard Award finalists, Kristen Essig and Michael Stoltzfus. They have a very popular brunch on the weekend where the fried chicken platter is a must, but their dinner service should not be missed either. If you like this place, you should try their new, more casual place Thalia as well. Reservations are recommended at this local favorite.
