I'm writing up a day-by-day guide to New Orleans coffeeshops. I envision a month-long calendar of coffee houses fit for every occasion. There are more than enough candidates, as I've found from personal experience.
I won't focus on the coffee so much as the atmosphere of the establishments. I'll leave the grinds to percolate through the commenters.
But I will denote the places where I've had the best and the worst of a few things. Like Laurel Street Bakery and Cafe - which has the dubious honor of serving the worst iced mocha I've ever tried. Absolutely undrinkable. But their king cake is nice during Carnival.
