Highlights

Cafe Degas was named after the 19th century French Impressionist, Hilaire Germain Edgar Degas, who in 1872 visited New Orleans and stayed for a short time down the street at 2306 Esplanade Ave. French artist and restaurateur, Jacques Soulas, came to New Orleans in 1980, and with his friend Jerry Edgar decided to build a restaurant that would be reminiscent of his homeland, and where diners could experience French Bistro atmosphere (with a New Orleans touch), good food and an inspired Wine List. They chose the current location for old historic charm, the area's artful and picturesque appeal, and because the available space was just right for the effect they were trying to create. Space is indeed tight in this small cafe, and we use the lack of space as an asset. How, you wonder? Well, since there isn't enough space for storage, everything is bought fresh every morning. Through the years Cafe Degas has become a standard for quality of food and service, as we continuously try to perfect the art of enticing the palate with our deliciously prepared daily specials and wine selection. We hope to see you in person soon. Bon Appetit!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The waitress was not friendly. She filled our water only after we asked twice and she never brought the coffee I ordered. She only smiled when she brought our check. The crawfish quiche was burnt on the bottom and quite dry. Surprised this place was rated so well!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Onion soup is among the very best in New Orleans. However, the pan seared veal was actually heavily breaded and fried, which was not as described in the menu.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from There was a couple seated next to us that overpowered our area with their conversation. We were not able to hold a conversation because of that. Thank goodness that we were almost finished our meal before they arrived.
