Cafe Du Monde - Original French Market Coffee Stand New Orleans
If you are in New Orleans, do not forget to stop by Cafe du Monde on Decatur Street for cafe au lait and beignets. Since 1862, this venerable French Quarter favorite is a perfect spot to watch the world go by at any time of day or night. White-jacketed servers gingerly navigate between crowded tables inside and on the patio, and street musicians often set up nearby. Beignets (fried, rectangle-shaped doughnuts covered in confectioner's sugar) and dark-roasted cafe au laits are the staples here. Laissez les bons temps rouler!
