6 Best Breakfast Places in Uptown
Medical News Today

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so why not start it off right at these local joints?


Located on Laurel Street around shotgun houses and the Octavia Bookstore, Toast is a local gem. It serves sweet and savory crêpes, Danish aebelskivers, which are puff pancakes in the shape of golf balls, hangar steak, omelettes, and toast with various toppings such as sunny egg and avocado or smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. Uptown just wouldn't be the same without Toast. You can access the full menu here. In addition, there's a Toast on Gentilly next to the Fairgrounds. It serves a few extra items including BLT Waffle, Toast Burger, and fried chicken and waffles.

District Donuts

At first, I didn't want to go to District Donuts because I thought it was just, well, 1000 calorie donuts. While that may be true, they also offer breakfast that makes my mouth water thinking about it. My favorite dish is the steak, egg, and queso breakfast taco where they make each tortilla from scratch after the order is placed. They also have kolaches, salmon sliders, and waffle fries that aren't too crispy or limp. My thinking is that if you're going to eat junk, you might as well eat really delicious junk.


Also known as Panola Street Café, Riccobono's is located in the heart of the Uptown neighborhood. Families gather there after Sunday church, and there's always the trickle of businessmen picking up a quick bite in the weekday early mornings. I always get the "Two Two Three" plate -- two eggs any way you like them, two strips of applewood smoked bacon, and three silver dollar pancakes -- and a tall glass of chocolate milk. It offers a lot of other traditional breakfast and lunch items. You can access the full menu here.

PJ's Coffee Shop

PJ's is famous among New Orleanians, and if you're a local, you know not to go to Starbucks. It's the place to study, catch up with old friends, meet new friends, conduct business meetings, run into neighbors, grab a coffee or granita to-go, or hang out for hours on end. PJ's is loved so much by locals that my high school built one on its small campus. I also wrote the majority of my college application essays at PJs on Maple, so although its a far stretch, I might be at a different school if it weren't for PJ's' atmosphere.

New Orleans Coffee and Beignet Company

New Orleans Coffee and Beignet Company is great for Uptown locals who want beignets but don't want the hassle of driving to Café du Monde in the French Quarter. The beignets are light and fluffy, and powdered sugar is unlimited, which is a huge plus for me. The frozen café au laits have a dense, sweet flavor. Not too shabby.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

"People waste their time pondering whether a glass is half empty or half full. Me, I just drink whatever's in the glass."
