Café Degas

3127 Esplanade Ave.
New Orleans, LA 70119

Café 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 Avenue.

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 café, and they 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, Café Degas has become a standard for quality of food and service, as they continuously try to perfect the art of enticing the palate with their deliciously prepared daily specials and wine selection. Bon appetit!!!
