After a night of watching people binge drinking themselves into the unknown on bourbon street we decided to walk over for a quick snack before heading back to the hotel. This was such a pleasant surprise because it was no wait everything was amazingly delicious

They only serve beignets and coffee but it is a must stop. Great place to people watch. Great coffee! Love the coffee with chicory. Beignets are wonderful!

Cafe Du Monde is an iconic New Orleans attraction and an absolute must-do when you are in town! They are open 24/7 for coffee, hot chocolate, and beignets! Yes, the lines will be long in the morning, but there's a reason - everyone loves them!...More
