We were recently in New Orleans for our friend’s wedding and decided to check out one new spot before the wedding festivities began. After doing a little internet browsing we stumbled upon The Spotted Cat Food and Spirits. If you live in New Orleans or plan on visiting soon, be sure to check this spot out.
I’ll admit, I go to New Orleans at least once a year, but typically more than that. However, I’ve never really explored the breakfast/brunch scene.
Located at St. Claude and St. Roch this restaurant sits in a unique area of the city. I was amazed by how many people I saw ride by on a bike. I’ll be honest, in all my years of visiting and spending time in New Orleans I rarely see people just scooting around town on a bike.
The breakfast here is good… and when I say good, I mean GOOD (and unique).
William ordered the Huevos Rancheros with Shrimp. I got a teeny little bit of this meal because he ate it so fast! Needless to say, it was delicious.
The Huevos Rancheros consists of sunny side up eggs, black bean puree, ranchero sauce, pico de gallo, queso fresco, avocado puree, and tortilla chips. William also added a side of shrimp to his order!
When I saw the Miso Bacon Pancakes on the menu I was a little scared. I just didn’t understand how miso could enhance a breakfast item… But, I decided to give this breakfast entree a try and I’m so glad I did. The miso, chives, bacon, and sweetness of the syrup was a perfect combination. It’s topped with a miso butter and it’s to die for!
Their Miso Bacon Pancake entree consists of bacon scallion pancakes, miso garlic butter, and maple syrup. I also added a side of sunny side eggs!
Because the spotted cat is “food and spirits” they also have an extensive bar and breakfast drink menu!
