No one can come to New Orleans without having beignets and cafe au lait at Cafe du Monde; watching the crowd and the servers carry those huge trays of hot coffee and beignets is an experience. Then you bite into those fluffy delights......yum! Our recent trip was made most memorable by the ringing of the bells of the Cathedral across Jackson Square. A new Pope had been named!

We enjoyed picking up from the take out window and carrying over to enjoy in Jackson Square. Much nicer place to sit than the crowded dining tables

I've been coming here for many years and just love their beignets! They are open 24/7 so you can get your craving in at anytime of the day. Remember to bring some cash, enjoy the hot beignets and coffee! Plus you can't beat the atmosphere and location in Jackson Square for people watching.

Just an FYI.....I know a lot of you want to sit and enjoy the atmosphere, but maybe you just crave the chickory flavored NOLA coffee and some beignets......go to the backside and walk up to the take out window. the coffee and beignets come out fresh and then walk up for a view of the Mississippi and the riverboat or turn around and get an elevated view of Jackson Square and enjoy!

This place rocks!!!! They served the BEST beignets in town. Its open space cafe a little bit of a wait for a table but well worth it. Try to get there in the early afternoon to get table..it's self seating but share an order because the beignets are so huge,moist and deliscious!!
