Breakfast at merchant | new orleans

Firstly, thanks everyone for the kind notes on the Kinfolk dinner post - I couldn't have asked for a more photogenic space and subjects to shoot, so I certainly can't take full credit! Now back to regularly scheduled programming... (i.e., film shots from New Orleans!)

Merchant is a very cool modern space in the Central Business District of New Orleans. I was a huge fan of the red accents and mix of rustic wood pieces with sleek white chairs.


We kinda took over this communal table with all our bags and food. I regretted not getting a sweet crepe - I went with a savory pancetta and think I would have preferred good ol' nutella and fruit. Illy coffee is obviously no Stumptown or Blue Bottle but as snob as I am about coffee, I will enjoy whatever is available to me.

  2. Stumptown and Intelligentsia are *obviously* the best, but in most cases, some coffee is better than no coffee.

  8. nutella + fruit are the ingredients of my go-to sweet crepe, too! haha. i think nutella is universally liked. i have yet to meet someone who doesn't like nutella.

    great shots! that communal table looks so cool.

  9. Could be worse- you could be looking for fresh grinds in Hawaii.
