Are you looking for the top photography spots in the French Quarter? Here are 10 locations you can take photos at.
The French Quarter in New Orleans is one of the most unique places I’ve been to in the United States. The former French colony made me feel like I was on the streets of Europe. The colorful storefronts, the bright green doors, and the architecture were so much fun to see. As someone who hunts for the most Instagram worthy places in every city, I was blown away by New Orleans French Quarter.
I already highlighted the French Quarter in 12 Most Instagrammable Places in New Orleans but I wanted to highlight some of the favorite photography locations we specifically saw within the French Quarter.
If you’re looking for the most Instagram worthy restaurants in New Orleans or looking for the best places to take photos in New Orleans, this blog post is for you!
Here the Top 10 Photo Spots in the French Quarter:
1. The Court of Two Sisters
Address: 613 Royal Street New Orleans LA 70130
While Karya and I didn’t personally stop to eat at this restaurant, the Court of Two Sisters offers daily jazz brunches with creole classics. I hope I get to stop by and eat here next time I’m in NOLA!
2. Café du Monde
Address: 800 Decatur St, New Orleans, LA 70116
Cafe du Monde first went into business in 1862. Serving beignets and coffee, Cafe du Monde is open 24 hours day/7 days a week. If you’re in NOLA, you have to stop by Cafe du Monde.
Karya and I stopped by here at 8am in the morning on a Sunday. We didn’t have to wait very long and found a table right away. By 8:30 am, every table was full. I’d recommend making this one of your first stops in the French Quarter.
3. Royal Accents Treasures
Address: Right across the street from the Court of Two Sisters
As we were taking photos in front of the Court of Two Sisters, we noticed this adorable pink building with dark green doors. We of course had to stop and also take a photo!
4. Jackson Square
Address: 701 Decatur St, New Orleans, LA 70116
Jackson Square is a historic park in the French Quarter. Fun fact, it was renamed Plaza de Armas under Spanish colonial rule.
5. Latrobe’s on Royal
Address: 403 Royal St, New Orleans, LA 70130
This beautiful yellow building was named after it’s architect: Benjamin Henry Latrobe. Latrobe was known as the “Father of American Architecture”. During his lifetime, he made contributions to the US Capital, the US Waterworks System, and more.
6. Colorful Alleyway near 9 Roses Cafe
Address: 620 Conti Street, New Orleans, LA 70130
We were walking around the block when we saw this colorful alleyway!
7. Brennan’s Restaurant

8. Interesting Storefronts (near Sherman Williams)
Address: 219 N Peters St New Orleans, LA 70130
8. Green Doors Pink Building
Address: Somewhere in the French Quarter
I’ve scoured through Google Maps looking for this location! I wish we had written down the cross streets when we took photos but I didn’t. I’m sorry I don’t have an exact address!
9. Antoine’s Restaurant
Address: 720 St Louis St, New Orleans, LA 70130
Originally established in 1840, Antoine’s is the oldest family run restaurant. I wish we had stopped by to eat inside!

There are so many great corners in the French Quarter! This one is at Kingfish on 337 Chartres St, New Orleans, LA 70130:
This spot is across the street from Latrobes:
