For lunch, come back for delectable sandwiches and quiches. Try to get a window seat, where you can watch the passersby as you savor some time in this cool oasis. The building is old and charming, and the interior is ornately decorated, with a small courtyard and fountain that is pleasant on less-steamy days.
This is a somewhat neglected part of the French Quarter, because it is not close to the action on Bourbon Street or Royal. I enjoy the quieter pace, and the Cafe d'Or is a great rest stop after touring the Old Ursuline Convent or one of the historic houses nearby.

They serve wonderful pastries and quiche with good, strong coffee to get your morning going. The almond croissant is particularly tasty and it's hard to go wrong by ordering quiche, no matter what kind it is.
There is a small courtyard outside with a fountain, a perfect place for enjoying breakfast and planning the day's events or reading the paper.
