Court of Two Sisters

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by kimntrent on January 4, 2005

The Court of Two Sisters is one of my favorite places for brunch, which is served 7 days a week from 9am to 3pm and with a jazz trio starting at 9:30am. We have been two times.

The first time we sat inside next to the jazz band. We took two little girls, and they were entertained the entire time. The floors are marble, and one wall is entirely windows while the other wall is made up of mirrors. The windows overlook a gorgeous courtyard, where you can dine as well. The second time we sat in the courtyard under wisteria plants. The tables are set on old bricks, so in some places they wobble a little.

The brunch is buffet-style. There is much traditional New Orleans fare to choose from. The eggs Benedict here are awesome, and they are even better when made to order. The desserts are fabulous. They are constantly refreshing what is on the buffet line, so everything is always fresh.

I would suggest, however, going to the bathroom before you go to brunch here. There is one stall on the first floor and then a very small bathroom on the second floor. It is a very old building, so the plumbing is not the best in the world. You can enter the restaurant from either the Royal Street side or the Bourbon Street side. If you choose the Bourbon Street, side the sign below is what you are looking for, along with a small podium and a gate that are very hidden. The Royal Street side is more noticeable. Overall, this restaurant is a do-not-miss. You can even book reservations online on their website. **Hidden note: If you are a Disney Fan look for this, when waling down Bourbon Street look into the courtyard of the restaurant. There you will see heads made of stone like in the haunted mansion that sing to you. Could this be where the idea came from? Only one flaw, they don't sing here.**
