UPTOWN – Freret pedestrians got an extra jolt this morning, thanks to Brigade Coffee Company. New Orleans’ newest addition to the burgeoning food truck scene opened on Freret Street in the Company Burger parking lot, serving up coffee drinks from their own roasted, farm-sourced beans. Inspired by coffee culture in Los Angeles and New York City, owner Shawn Parsons decided the time was right for New Orleans to step up its caffeine game.

Brigade Coffee Company will be parked on Freret Street starting at 9:00am on Saturday and Sunday, then heads to the Bywater on Monday.  For updates, check them out on Facebook and Twitter.
