This is a really cute cafe. I love it that it's by the river and best other local tourist locations. The baked goods was delicious. However the only thing that was confusing was how customers were served. Otherwise, it was good service.

This was my daughters first trip to NOLA so we had to go to Cafe du Monde. Monday was delightful, NO WAIT! Such a different experience from the packed weekends. Service was on par, friendly, fast and accurate. Don’t forget it is CASH ONLY!

This is a bucket list stop for all tourists. Three beignets per order, coffee and a glass of water is the standard fare. Be prepared to wait and grab a table when someone gets up. Don’t be shy!

It was on the list. A bit of let down. Service was weak and the place is a bit dirty. However, it is a must do. We checked it off of our list.

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
