Where would you take Angela Lansbury for tea?

Hello, N'awilins--

I have looked forward to visiting you for years.

I'm going to be in the French Quarter for a wedding, and will be entertaining my elderly parents for part of the time. They are lovely people, but very MidWestern, coming from Wisconsin. They have rarely been to the South, but did enjoy the charm of Charleston when they had a chance to visit years ago. I'm convinced that they'll love New Orleans' charms also.

Where can I take my parents to eat to enjoy old-school Southern ambience? Mom is like Angela Lansbury or Julie Andrews...where can I take her for tea or a ladies' lunch?

My parents are not gastronomes who are into nouveau cuisine...they got their fill of stylish interiors and big-name chefs back when Dad was on the executive expense account. What oozes charm and old-school service, or family-owned or home-style cooking?

I'll take recommendations for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Thanks, New Orleans!
