It can be hard to find a traditional breakfast or brunch spot in uptown New Orleans. I enjoyed Coulis, but found a few odd features, including their bacon being deep fried. There are some dishes that do represent some local influence, but for the most...part the menu is traditional diner with a few twists. The staff treated our kids table "like kings", with extra care in presenting fun faces on the pancakes. I was looking for a little bit more out of this restaurant when it came to a classic breakfast diner experience.More

We stopped here for brunch on our first morning in NO. Friendly staff, interesting food (we wanted local dishes) and full of locals. Perfect.

We had heard about Coulis and we looked it up on Trip Advisor. We perused the menu on the site and we’re so excited to get fried green tomatoes and some sandwiches. Unfortunately, this trip advisor listing is outdated. It still has the menu (and...store front photo) of the prior restaurant called Bluebirds. We were so disappointed to learn they don’t serve fried green tomatoes, nor do they offer lunch on weekends. At 1pm, we had to order breakfast food. We wanted to leave but felt bad so we stayed. Our server was lovely. The food was fine. Not spectacular. But good enough. If you’re a breakfast fan, you’ll enjoy the options. Otherwise, there are tons of great lunch places nearby. By the way, we asked our server why their trip advisor listing is wrong and she just said “oh, yeah it has the previous restaurant on there.” She didn’t seem to care much when we suggested she have the owner if Coulis correct the issue. It’s not the end of the world, but trip advisor only works if the listings are accurate.More

This restaurant was recommended by our Airbnb host. It was definitely not a tourist destination. I like places that aren’t chain restaurants and Coulis fits that description. It was a very old building and it felt historical. In Florida, where we live, everything is very...new so I liked the character of the restaurant. It was not crowded. We did not have to wait long for the food. I had eggs and sautéed mushrooms. I tried to keep it healthy but there was more oil then I use at home. My son had steak and eggs and he enjoyed his meal. Both were very tasty. Price was on par with other places in New Orleans.More

This dish was unbelievable. It's corn cakes with jalapeno peppers, pulled pork on top of that, 2 poached eggs and hollandaise sauce. It was more than I could eat but the flavors were incredible. It's called Eggs Benicio on the menu, but it's their version...of Eggs Benedict. The service was a bit slow and under attentive, but the food was certainly worth it!More

We had breakfast here this morning after a year's absence from the city, and it is as good as it was. As excellent, I mean. The omelette is still perfectly cooked and the mushrooms are nice and chunky; the buckwheat pancake, with banana, blueberries, whipped...cream, and powdered sugar, is still my favorite restaurant pancake of all time. The broiled tomato is probably what a tomato most wants to become. The coffee is also excellent. The only fault is in the maple syrup, but then we live in upstate NY and get our syrup from our own trees. We are spoiled... . And as to the service: you couldn't ask for it to be nicer, friendlier, or more efficient. Of course, you could ASK, but you couldn't get it!More

This is one of those small places, outside of a big tourist area that is just fantastic. Breakfast here is a must!

Very good food very good service. Best part is that it is right behind our hotel. I had the original eggs beneicio and it was awesome.

Eggs Benicio are fantastic! Also the pancakes are fabulous! If you're in the Garden District you need check out this restaurant.
