The café is crowded at all hours. You will have to wait for your table, but don’t expect to be ushered in at the next empty table. When you reach the front of your line and you see someone getting up, bag the table immediately and then wait to get it cleaned; not the other way round or you’ll lose your table to the more experienced. Beignets and strong chicory coffee make a reliable hangover remedy after a night of revelry on Bourbon Street.
Black is the wrong colour to wear in this casual café. You will invariably be covered with specks of the powdered sugar as you tuck in the delightful beignets. My partner was, unfortunately, put off by the beignets when he became smothered in sugar dust and had an incredibly hard time dusting it off.

During morning hours, Café Du Monde is crowded. Expect to wait in line. When you reach the front of the line, grab a table as soon as you see someone getting up. Don’t wait for it to be cleaned or you’ll lose out to more fleet-footed diners.
Don’t want to wait? It's open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, except on Christmas and during hurricanes, so go for a late afternoon or midnight snack. It's a great place to sit outside and people-watch at any time of the day.
Hint: Don’t wear black. There’s no way to avoid dusting your face and clothes with powdered sugar as you dig in and delight in this New Orleans tradition!

Café Du Monde is an open air restaurant that looks out on to Jackson Square (the epicenter of the French Quarter) and makes a great jumping off point for a day of sight seeing or the final stop after a night carousing.
