New Menu for Jazz Fest!
A Word About What Corner Café
Means To a Neighborhood
Imagine stepping in to a familiar place where your neighbors meet to share strong coffee and friendly chat.
The sounds of people conversing, faint clatter of spoons stirring coffee cups, and playful piano melodies fill the air. Your eyes travel around the room and notice the fresh flowers on each table, with artwork and photographs on the wall. Scenes in and around historic Oak Street and autographed celebrities are on display. Your gaze rests on old time glass and wood display cases with fresh pastries.
Every neighborhood paints a self portrait of the people who live there. A place like the Oak Street Café serves as a cornerstone of the values and charm that define the neighborhood we call home.
Jazz Fest menu specials include, Creole Spinach Egg Nest, Rib Eye Steak and Eggs, Shrimp and Grits, Crawfish Boudreaux Benedict and more!
Plan on a nice visit to Oak Street Café, won’t you?
Our mission is to provide delicious high quality home cooked meals and hot coffee at a reasonable price.
Oak Street Cafe is a warm and friendly cafe with a flair for the old cafes and diners of the Southern United States before the "fast food invasion".
Folks tell us that we have some of the best food in all Uptown New Orleans. One long time resident in the neighborhood said "the cornbread tastes like my grandmothers". She was dining with her grand daughter. Another satisfied diner exclaimed that "everything was perfect"!
Our service makes you feel at times better than the way you are treated at home.
