    The Alpine is a modern, clean, and large self-proclaimed "Louisiana Cajun Bistro" (are there Cajuns from outside of Louisiana?) with a name that just doesn't fit the surroundings. I stopped in for breakfast, mainly because it is one of only a few places open in the French Quarter at 9am on Sunday. The breakfast menu had the usual American staples like omelets and bacon, but also a few unique local dishes such as the Cajun omelet...with ham mushrooms and heavy Cajun spices, along with a side of fried potatoes and fresh fruit this meal was very good. Breakfast is very expensive at around $11 for an omelet plus a few bucks for coffee then tip...at least $15-17 per person. Central location just around the corner from Jackson Square and a few blocks from Bourbon. The Alpine also has a courtyard.

    According to the website, The Alpine originally opened in 1961 and was run by a man from Switzerland (hence the name). It changed owners in 1991 and that must be when it became more upscale and expensive!
