somehow, 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
french truck – the coolest coffee shop (so instagramable) and super friendly staff, located on magazine street and now at the new dryades market
district coffee – my favorite coffee shop overall, the coffee is always good and same for the treats, hello donut heaven, both locations on opposite ends of magazine street
sólo espresso – located in the bywater, these cozy spot serves one of my first coffees loves, panther coffee roasted in miami
revelator coffee – my favorite for their coffee, i like their sleek aesthetic too, located in the central business district
also, watch out for stumptown coffee scheduled to open soon at the new ace hotel!
did i miss out on any other spots? i would love to know!
