new orleans best coffee shops (according to me)

best-coffee-shops-in-new-orleans-by-myseastory-5somehow, when we moved to new orleans, i began to develop a liking for coffee, ok, bordering obsession. honestly, i don’t think my palate is developed enough to be able to describe the different coffees, roasts and origins, but i can tell if i like them or not. and it began making a difference, i no longer wanted to have coffee in just any coffee shop, i wanted to go to specific spots. and to think that i used to have an obsession for starbucks…

these were my top coffee shops in new orleans and i would definitely recommend (in no particular order) –

mojo coffee house (pictured above) – very new orlean, a no frills spot to enjoy whilst getting some work done, located on freret and on magazine street

district-by-myseastory-5when we first arrived to new orleans last october, i was on the look out for a good coffee shop in our neighbourhood. one of my favorite routines is going out in the morning with julia and grabbing a coffee, to help start my days off on the right foot :) it’s amazing how kids like their routines, so it works out for both of us.

luckily, on day 2 i found district hand pie & coffee bar, just two blocks away from our airbnb. not only the girls there are super friendly, but their coffee is really good, and they use the best ingredients. on special ‘treat days’, which happened more often than i would like to admit, we would get a blueberry muffin or a chocolate chip cookie with sea salt – delicious and just too tempting!


then we found out they also have a food truck (which we never got the chance to see) and a second location on magazine street, district: donuts, sliders, brew – a fun and casual spot for craft brewed coffee, sliders and an outstanding creativity for donut flavors. their mind-blowing donuts are different every day and range from salted caramel, vietnamese iced coffee, red beans and rice, peanut butter and marshmallow or limoncello and poppyseed to name a few. its always busy and sometimes with a queue that can scare you off, but so worth the wait.

also, how cool are those iconic benches pictured on top?!

district is definitely our favorite coffee shop in new orleans, there’s nothing like it and we”re going to miss our daily coffees and weekend donut dates!
