Cafe du Monde

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Jessicat1982 on August 5, 2004

Most days I ended up here at some time or another, usually in the morning before I'd start meandering around the French quarter or in the late evening after everything else had closed.

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.
