  Court of Two Sisters
by aphrodyte

The location of The Court of Two Sisters dates back almost to the founding of New Orleans. In 1886, the Camors sisters opened what the French would call a "rabais shop" in an ancient building on Royal Street. The Shop of the Two Sisters offered many things of interest to the public, from little notions to the elegance of a ball dress.

Unfortunately, the prosperity the sisters enjoyed during the latter part of the nineteenth century quickly faded in the years of the Great Depression, and the lovely little curio shop was destined for new ownership. The building passed through many hands for the next few decades, serving as a bistro, a refreshment stand and even a speakeasy.

Amid flowering plants and quietly flowing fountains in a courtyard accented by old-world French architecture, The Court of Two Sisters offers a world-famous daily Jazz Brunch Buffet with a delicious display of hot and cold dishes. For sentimental and romantic occasions, The Court of Two Sisters could be considered a destination for families and couples. By night, the courtyard truly comes alive with flickering gas lights and candle-lit tables.

Favorite Dish: Having brunch here is a definite "do". The crawfish etoufee is a favorite of mine. I would finished off the meal with a cup of coffee and creme brulee, a delectable treat that is quite rich.

My daughter likes the selection of breads, and the omlette table during brunch.
