Just had a friend return from France, and we're looking for authentic french pastry shops, cafes, etc. for a trip next week.
We're definitely more interested in sweet rather than savory, but both is not a problem. Somewhere with a real espresso is definitely a plus, but not totally necessary.
Most of our time will be in the audubon area to the business district, and some time heading west through a few places in metairie, etc.
