Cafe Du Monde
Since 1862, this is the original French Market coffee stand.
Serving cafe au lait and beignets 24 hours daily (on Decatur St., other shops open ca. 8 a.m.).
Taste the original beignet, Louisiana state donut, coffee with chicory and half hot milk...cafe au lait!
Oh, yay! Creole pastries carrés (square, like the Vieux Carré), fried to crusty perfection and
generously sprinkled with powdered sugar. Got café au lait?
Tip: wear light colors to camouflage the powdered sugar.
