6 New Orleans Brunch Dishes You Can’t Miss

A Chill, Uptown Brunch

Surrey’s is a unique, popular local brunch spot with two locations in Uptown New Orleans. When you do catch a line out the door, which is often, you may be asked for an actor or singer’s name to signify your group. “Brad Pitt! Your table is ready!”

Raving Review:

“Amazing food, funky vibe, all around great joint. Never had a bad meal here. Love their boudin patties, and the bananas foster French toast is not to be missed. Their corned beef hash cures hangovers, or you can get a bloody from Le Bon Temps next door to keep the buzz going.” – Jessie B.

Raving Review:

“I swear every time that I’ve come here my palette has always left extremely happy and tummy full. …The lovely hostess was very accommodating allowing us to sit in the corner away from a more crowded area, I don’t like sitting that close to people…especially when I’m that hungry. The service was great as well.” – Tuyet P.
