On the corner of Jackson Square is Stanley Restaurant where La Madeleine used to be. It is a good place to people watch and to eat one of the best breakfasts in the Quarter. We got there closer to lunchtime but that didn’t stop me from ordering breakfast.
I had the Bananas Foster French Toast and, other than the bananas just being sliced over the dish and not flambe’d in brown sugar, it was delicious. The French Toast was both crispy and soft and the added scoop of ice cream was a nice counterpoint.
My lunch companion had the lump crab po-boy and ended up eating the second half without the bread. She really enjoyed the slaw and the flavor of the crab.
Definitely a nice place to stop in after a night of partying and when you want something more than beignets to start the day.
