Brunch at Audubon Clubhouse Cafe’ & My First Blogger Award


Lined with well manicured Spanish moss laden oaks, the Audubon Clubhouse Cafe’ is a favorite of J and I’s for a Saturday or Sunday brunch. Located in historic Audubon Park on the Audubon Golf course, the Acadian home is the perfect place to share a couple cocktails and delicious well prepared lunch dishes.


“Audubon Clubhouse Café is open to the public and located in Audubon Park within Audubon Clubhouse. This casual and comfortable atmosphere offers standard clubhouse fare but an expanded and creative menu provides an exciting culinary experience. Audubon Clubhouse replicates a historic Acadian home blending in perfectly with the century old oak trees of Audubon Park. Enjoy your breakfast, brunch or lunch inside or find a table on a wide veranda that wraps around the Clubhouse with a majestic view.”

You have to experience breakfast, brunch, or lunch on the rear porch next time you visit New Orleans. The Cafe’ is located Magazine Street just across the street from the zoo. My favorite brunch item is chicken salad on croissant served with a side of sweet potato fries. Delicious!
