The Neighborhood

Every New Orleans neighborhood has its own special charm and Algiers is no different. University of Holy Cross students, faculty and staff have a list of favorite locations around campus to hang out, have fun and of course, eat. Here are just a few of our recommendations.


Algiers restaurants range from national favorites to local, New Orleans originals. Pop in for a bite at one of these delicious eateries and you'll probably run into a familiar face from campus.

• Olive Branch Cafe

• Applebee's

• Rendezvous Cafe 

• Tony Mandina's


When it's time to work off all that great West Bank food, check out our special agreement with Anytime Fitness - a 24 hour a day gym located across the street from campus.
