Café du Monde
No trip to New Orleans is complete without sampling what Louisiana is truly known for. Swing by the historic Café du Monde and pick up your own beignet, a delicious, square French-style donut topped with powdered sugar. This traditional, open-air coffeeshop on Decatur St., less than a mile from our French Quarter hotel, goes all the way back to 1862. Visit any time of the day all year except for Christmas. Order dark roasted coffee and chicory, freshly squeezed orange juice, or chocolate milk. You may recognize this spot from Jon Favreau's Chef comedy film where he stops with his son to try these famous beignets.
