Food and Drink

Good food in a beautiful and fun atmosphere. Acorn’s location overlooking City Park’s “Little Lake” makes it the ideal place to enjoy a nice meal. The casual café uses local ingredients to create updated versions of familiar dishes. From the kale Caesar to the fried chicken sandwich, you’ll quickly discover that this menu is influenced by experienced chefs. The same chefs who run the kitchens of Dickie Brennan & Co.’s award-winning French Quarter restaurants. 

Good coffee is a must! That’s why we serve local roaster, French Truck’s coffee. Signature ice coffee to frothy latte, we have your caffeine needs covered.
Great beer and wine is also a must! We proudly serve a selection of canned beer from the best local breweries. These are complemented by a nice selection of artisan wines and gourmet wine cocktails – all available in a can. We can provide you with glassware of course, but the cans make it easy to take the drink to go in gorgeous City Park (don’t forget to recycle).

We Love Kids

We’re more than kid-friendly. Located in the Louisiana Children’s Museum, Acorn loves our littlest guests and provides them and their caregivers with an unparalleled dining experience. The Little Acorn menu is complete with all their favorites, many updated to provide increased nutritional value, without compromising taste.  

The kid’s culinary lab (think professional grade play kitchen) is the perfect spot for kids to use their imaginations while they wait for their food or after they’re finished. It also provides children with entertainment, so mom and dad can finish their lunch or that much-needed cup of coffee.

Environmental Stewards

We have one planet, and we need to be responsible stewards of our environment for the next generations. Following the Louisiana Children’s Museums lead, we’re recycling, composting, and buying local whenever possible. 

We proudly use herbs for the Children’s Museums edible garden and donate our compost to Grow Dat Youth Farm – Our neighbor, who is empowering New Orleans youth through sustainable farming. 

Help us keep as much as possible out of the landfills by following the directions on our bussing station signs.
