New Orleans | Documentary Photography of the Streets of French Quarter & The Garden District
We had a great 4 days in New Orleans, despite the cold and rain. We walked all over the French Quarter and stayed in a cute little apartment there, decorated in authentic period style. It was the perfect location for walking to food, shopping and sightseeing in the French Quarter.
We loved wandering around all the little neighborhoods with their colorful houses and fun decor. Every street had so much character. We visited our favorite little coffee shop Satsuma twice for fresh squeezed juices, delicious berry parfaits and wonderful sandwiches.
We had half price pizza and a delicious salad at Domenica in the Roosevelt Hotel and browsed the little shops all along Royal Street in the French Quarter. We took in the Art Museum on a particular cold day and had afternoon snacks of classic Beignets, a lighter, delicious variant of a donut.
We had great Italian at a cozy little place called the Italian Barrel including a delicious lemon pastry with almond and strawberries. We caught a few local musicians at Preservation Hall and took in a relaxing evening of jazz at a local restaurant called The Palm Court Jazz Cafe.
On our last morning, we ubered over to the garden district for breakfast and more sightseeing. There is a cute little block of shops on Magazine street and lots of beautiful old homes where we were fortunate enough to discover tons of frenchies and a very entertaining bulldog. We finished off our stay with lunch at the Flying Burrito, a funky, delicious little Mexican Joint in the Garden District. It might be my last little vacation for awhile with the baby coming in June so it was a great chance to get away and catch up my favorite ladies;)
