Tips from the community
I haven’t had Willa Jean in a few months and I still think about their biscuits. You can’t leave the southern United States without trying a biscuit (especially one with white sausage gravy). Willa Jean is the place in NOLA to get your fix. Baked fresh daily & served with a variety of toppings and spreads to choose from, you can’t go wrong. Aside from over the top biscuits, Willa Jean also has great breakfast specials. I love their grits and the King Cake when it’s in season.

This year, the phenomenal brunch spot Willa Jean is serving a caramel crunch King Cake. Place orders 48 hours in advance, and when you arrive for pickup be sure to stay for breakfast. If their King Cake is anything like their famous biscuits, it just may be the best in the city.

- kaylee (Kaylee Giacomini) New Orleans has some of the best culinary experiences in the United States, so as expected they have phenomenal brunch options across the city. Whenever I have friends or family visiting I always take them to one of my favorite spots to enjoy a decadent, long breakfast that can last hours if done just right. From jazz buffets to bottomless vodka New Orleans does brunch exceptionally well.
- kaylee (Kaylee Giacomini) I love everything about Carnival season in New Orleans - the parades, decor, and overall joviality of the city always manages to brighten the winter down here. Best of all, it’s King Cake season! Although you technically can find King Cake at all times in New Orleans, the period between the Catholic Holidays of Epiphany and Ash Wednesday is when it’s socially acceptable to eat this decadent brioche. A traditional King Cake is a ring shaped dough formed to mimic the shape of a crown in honor of the Three Kings of Epiphany. The cake is then adorned in glaze and purple, green, and gold sugar. A plastic baby figurine is also embedded into the cake, and if you end up getting the slice with it you must buy the next King Cake. Each year, my friends and I go on a mission to find the best King Cakes in the city - here are some of my favorites.
