The Historic New Orleans Collection’s newly opened expansion at 520 Royal St. includes its first museum cafe. Café Cour, run by Dana and Christina Honn, who also own Carmo, is named for the Seignouret-Brulatour courtyard, where the cafe is located.
The menu reflects the Honns’ commitment to local ingredients, showcases the region’s multicultural culinary influences and offers gluten-free, vegetarian, pescatarian and vegan options, which can all be challenging to find in the French Quarter.
Café Cour follows the same schedule as the museum, affording a taste of New Orleans’ culture among the free exhibitions exploring its cultural influences.
