It's a great place to go to just people watch. There's almost always some kind of entertainment going on in the street next to the cafe. In the picture posted you might be able to make out a man playing the saxophone on the corner of the street.
Whether you have a frozen cafe au lait after a long hot day wandering around the quarter, or start your day off with a couple of beingnets and some chickory coffee, you need to go here at least once if for anything, just to say you did! It's been featured in so many books and movies that it's practically synonymous with the vieux carre.

Hint--take a carriage ride at Jackson Square afterwards; you will not be disappointed.

The Cafe Du Monde is the favorite gathering, people-watching, tourist spot in New Orleans. Be entertained by balloon artists and street musicians while you sip your coffee and eat beignets, a favorite French breakfast pastry.
The menu is limited and the indoor/outdoor seating is "first-come, grab-a-table". It can get very crowded, but the turnover is swift. One order of beignets includes three fresh, hot pastries covered in a mound of powdered sugar. They melt in your mouth! We went there twice. Be careful, the cafe au lait is very HOT!
