Thoughts: New Orleans is not a city of chains and has gone to lengths to keep the big guys out of the city. Ironically, a couple Nola-specific coffee chains have developed and can be found scattered throughout the neighborhoods. Community Coffee (CC’s) is one of these. The coffee and teas are decent and the internet is good, so we don’t have any complaints. The only thing that’s unreliable about CC’s is whether or not you’ll be able to snag a seat (beware of this, especially, at the Esplanade location).
