Cafe Du Monde is worth everything. Their pastry is worth the walk. When you bite into them it makes you feel like you have reached your sweet place in pastry heaven.

You don't get to be a NOLA institution without a top notch product and the Cafe Du Monde does not disappoint! Find a nice table with a view of Jackson Square in the evening and watch the sunset and people watch while enjoying the best beignets in NOLA!

Located on Decatur, this place is very popular. We ordered beignet and coffee. They were quite tasty but I would hate guessing how many calories there is in a single order... Don't wear black clothing as it is very likely you will be loaded with powdered sugar when done. Efficient service.

Every single person I know who has been to New Orleans told me I had to come here. My husband has been before and this was a non negotiable. We had to go. It was a nice experience. The beignets and cafe au lait were good and the experience was worth it.

We were told this was a must go to place in New Orleans. It was a very, very busy place. We could not find a seat outdoors so ended up indoors. Our waitress was a very elderly woman (not a problem), but we could not understand a word she spoke. We ordered coffee with some milk and the beignets which... More

This is a tradition for visitors in NOLA. It seems to be always open. Don't know for sure. The beignets are delish! So fresh, warm and good. They will give you ones with no powdered sugar if you ask. I love their coffee too. They put chicory in it, and it is so mellow tasting! What a combo! If you... More

I visited twice. Walked up once to take out window and sat once. There is no doubt you have to get a beignet in NOLA and this is the place to get them. But the patio is nothing special. Instead, grab them to go and sit in the nearby park.

This is the epitome of New Orleans and not to be missed. Great beignets and coffee, and great people watching. If you go to only one place in NOLA, this would be it.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
