This might not be the most popular opinion; however, I have to tell you that I don't care for anything this restaurant serves. The coffee doesn't taste good to me. I like my coffee very strong, sweetened with raw sugar, and lightened with just a dab of heavy cream. This is not possible at Cafe du Monde, where you can get your coffee either black or served with milk (not cream), alias "cafe au lait." Then you can add white refined sugar to it. The net effect is similar to what I drank when I was six years old. Order it black, and the only thing you can add to it is sugar, because they do not offer cream or half-and-half on the side. This is unfortunate. Now, the beignets. They are fine. They are better when dipped into the coffee. Since I've cut down on fried white flour, I can eat only a couple of bites of one of these things; my husband can have the rest. Okay, you get it that I'm not wild about the limited fare served here. So why do I even bother? Because there is nothing else in New Orleans like the experience of sitting under that green-striped awning watching the constant flow of passersby, a veritable melange of society. It's highly entertaining and especially delightful when it starts to rain.
