Backatown Coffee Parlour, located at the very site of old Storyville, embodies the aura of the time where you could hear the sounds of Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong, and King Oliver and meet folks from all walks of life. We strive to present Backatown as an authentic New Orleans gathering space that helps cultivate our neighborhoods through the fostering of ideas and conversations. Have you had barbecue shrimp six ways to Sunday? How about barbecue crawfish, served over grits, buttery, boldly spicy, just a little bit sweet, the rib-sticking dish is a signature flavor at Backatown Coffee Parlour

Backatown Coffee Parlour was never just about the coffee. Jessica and Alonzo Knox developed their Basin Street cafe at a crossroads between the Treme neighborhood where they live and the French Quarter and Central Business District, where so many people work and visit. Backatown has always served a breakfast and lunch menu, though as the cafe finds its way forward, takeout food is a more important part of sustaining the business.
