On a trip to New Orleans, you have to stop, at least once (possibly many more times), at the Cafe du Monde. Their beignets, a fried pastry square covered with powdered sugar and served hot, come in a grouping of three and are wonderfully delicious. Try an order with a cafe au lait or some other coffee product. The Cafe du Monde started as a coffee stand and still only serve drinks (mainly coffee) and beignets. The Cafe is open 24 hours a day, every day except Christmas. The Cafe du Monde is a perfect place to stop for a snack while seeing the sights, or after a night on the town, or for breakfast, or...well any excuse is as good as the next for visiting the Cafe du Monde.
