Also, how long overdue are we for an Ubuntu Developer Summit in New Orleans? :-)
BreakfastFor that New Orleans ambiance, it's hard to beat Cafe du Monde, for chicory cafe au lait and beignets. I'm definitely more of an espresso-based coffee drinker, but I make an occasional exception for a little chicory cafe. And the beignets are to die for. If you're more in the mood for a classic egg/toast/bacon/sausage breakfast, you can venture a bit further afield to the Camelia Grill (expect to wait a very long time, though, as the line is typically wrapped around the block).
BrunchYou'd be hard pressed to find a more ridiculously overwhelming all-you-can eat pile of decadent deliciousness than the jazz brunch at the Court of Two Sisters. It's quite possibly Kim's favorite thing to do in the entire world. It's a little pricey, maybe $25 per person. But it's all you can eat of the best Cajun sweets and savories. It's in the courtyard of a 200+ year old house, with a little jazz band
that wanders around the courtyard serenading you at table side. I'd call this a don't-miss dining experience in the world (much less New Orleans alone), if you're a true foodie at heart.
