New Orleans residents tend to get the day started slowly and, not surprisingly, the menu at a lot of its breakfast and brunch restaurants leans toward the latter part of the morning. Still a relative newbie on the competitive restaurant scene, Jacques-Imo's is a little cafe conveniently located next to the popular Maple Leaf Bar. Vincent's is a quaint neighborhood restaurant popular with both families and the uptown business crowd. Opened in 1991, Cafe Giovanni was renovated later to double capacity and add a spacious dining room and a closed-in courtyard. Cochon captures the true essence of Cajun and Southern cooking, as chef Donald Link brings his love for Southern Louisiana foods to every plate. It's a New Orleans tradition: too late for breakfast and too early for lunch. So combine the two and you have whatever you feel like eating at one of the great breakfast and brunch restaurant spots here in New Orleans.
