You can’t go to New Orleans without stopping by the notorious CafÃ© du Monde Coffee Stand on the French Quarter.
Crowds from around the world are drawn to the cafÃ© for their famous beignets, a square doughnut topped with powdered sugar.
CafÃ© du Monde beignets have been a New Orleans staple since the cafÃ© opened in 1862.
You can enjoy the sweet treats while you sip coffee and listen to local jazz musicians playing in the French Quarter.
The cafÃ© is open 24 hours and seven days a week. It’s the perfect place to go, whether you’ve been out on Bourbon Street all night, or you want a mid-afternoon snack after strolling around the French Market.
I’ve been going to CafÃ© du Monde Coffee Stand since I was a child. I can tell you from experience that no trip to New Orleans is complete without a visit to the cafÃ© for some beignets and chocolate milk!
