Due to many weeks of renovation New Orleans Cafe was having, I managed to past by Crowns Nest and thought I’d pop by to see if everything was complete and hooray they finally opened.
New Orleans Cafe provides an indoor and outdoor seating area, making it an ideal place to seat with a large group of friends outside where the sun is shining bright or for the romantic couples who prefer a bit more privacy-indoor.
If you enjoy a lively atmosphere, you would want to go on a weekend, I heard this cafe gets PACKED on a FRIDAY and SATURDAY night with LIVE MUSIC.
New Orleans is out of the ordinary for its Southern American cuisines. New Orleans offers unique milkshake flavours and you can taste the difference. Their All American Apple Pie ($13.70) with apple ice-cream that included chunks of caramelized apples pieces is absolutely one of the best apple pies I’ve had, it was MIND-BLOWING. And, witnessing my friends passionate facial expressions, I’d say it was that SUGAR-RUMPTIOUS!
Although their service lacked not jotting down the correct orders for a flat white in cup instead presented a Flat White in a Mug ($4.90). It was an average coffee and piping hot then regular coffees, but we were pleased it did not taste burnt whatsoever. So THUMBS UP for not burning it!
The Peanut Butter Milkshake ($6.70), which tasted so NUTTY was OUTSTANDING! Whilst sipping the milkshake, chunky pieces of crunchy peanuts would get sucked into the straw as well. Resulting a great combination of flavour and texture. I honestly didn’t mind another glass of milkshake…but I needed to save some space to try the rest of what we had ordered.
Whilst waiting for food to arrive I found WOODY…just kidding!
Orleans BENNY ($15.90) was not one of the best eggs benedict as one of the eggs were overcooked, luckily the other survived to be gooey and runny. Didn’t enjoy the extremely TANGY hollandaise sauce, perhaps it was cooked American style? And I usually come across the British version. But it’s worth giving it a try if you fancy tangy hollandaise sauce!
We couldn’t miss “The BIG EASY” full breakfast ($20.90) with not so crispy bacon, instead of poached eggs we asked for scrambled that tasted scrumptiously perfect but looked bubbly with hollow bubbles- hard to describe, see photo. Very tender chorizo sausage is a must try, pan fried field mushrooms, juicy roasted tomato, mammy’s beans on a warm toasted crispy sour dough. A great pick if you are REALLY HUNGRY!
Our last dish Aunty Betty’s Southern Pancake Stack ($15.90) served with their famous Buffalo bourbon maple sticky syrup and apple pie ice cream was heavenly delicious. BUT, for that price I’d much prefer heading down to Pancake On The Rocks! Because they fill the plate with A LOT of seasonal fruits and most importantly for a much lower cost.
I was completely stuffed by the end of the whole brunch, as a result it was satisfying brunch!
Highly recommend to give All American Apple Pie a try!!!
