The Bean Gallery

One of those “only locals know” spots, the Bean Gallery is a Mid City neighborhood coffee shop conveniently located on the main street of Carrolton. It has a spacious front deck shaded by oak trees and ample seating inside. Once a house, this now converted coffee shop feels you’re your favorite neighbor’s home. The Bean Gallery is also great for any caffeine addicts or long study sessions, as it closes at 12am.

The Rue de la Course building was built in the late 1920’s. It initially served as different banks over the years until 1990, when it became the fantastic coffee shop it is today. The Rue de la Course has high ceilings, a chandelier, and huge arches windows, and the architecture is just as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside.

Sacred Grinds Coffee House

This coffee house hands down has one the coolest locations of any coffee shop in Nola. Its backyard is one of the famous Cities of the Dead (above ground cemeteries). The only thing separating the graves from the back patio is a chain link fence! If that’s not what you want to see first thing in the morning, sit out front and watch the street cars go up and down Canal Street.

Good Karma Café

This café lives under a yoga studio, which is suiting for its menu offerings. The Good Karma Cafe serves vegan, gluten-free, and plant-based plats, and all foods are organic. They even grow some of their own ingredients!


This locally owned coffee shop has three prime locations on Dauphine St., Maple St., and Magazine St. Their mission is to sell healthy, fresh-pressed juices and made-from- scratch dishes free of preservatives/additives. The inside is decorated with locally made art and channels a laid-back vibe.
