CAFE DU MONDE in New Orleans, LA                                                                                           

In the famous city of New Orleans, home to the colorful Mardi Gras, Bourbon Street and the historical French Quarter with charming tiled streets and heritage homes, edifices, art galleries and quaint restaurants, some of which boast of beautiful and cozy courtyards, the Cafe du Monde, located on Decatur Street, is an institution. This legendary café that offers the simplest of menus with reasonable pricing does not disappoint. Well-known for its popular and quintessential beignets (3 pieces at $2.14), generously drenched with powdered sugar, and café au lait (at $2.14), Cafe Du Monde is a must-visit establishment for those who trek to New Orleans.  The atmosphere is electric and the gaiety from the visitors and locals who hang out there is contagious.  Street musicians, who may occasionally play jazz tunes by the café, add swinging entertainment to the mix.  Cheers!
