Pirate's Alley Cafe
The narrow pedestrian alley hidden in the shadow of St Louis Cathedral is a natural spot for a tiny bar, and this nook fits the bill perfectly. It has the atmosphere of a little Montparnasse hideaway with no claim to fame. You can snag a stool at the bar and meet the regulars, or claim a table out on the alley and soak up the Quarter.
