Café Du Monde in New Orleans' French Quarter combines old world charm with great coffee to make a great experience. Equally famous for their beignets the Café Du Monde can be found in the city's French Market, the oldest public market in the United States. A coffee here makes an ideal respite while browsing through the Market.
Things to Do
- The coffee at Café Du Monde may taste a little different thanks to the addition of chicory to the brew. It is an old French practice to add chicory so as to add extra flavour to the coffee. Each cup here is served either black or "au lait", where it is mixed half and half with milk. Whatever your preference if you love coffee you should be satisfied!
- A visit here would not be complete without sampling one of the Café beignets. A beignet is essentially fried dough often filled with fruit and topped off with a liberal helping of powdered sugar. They are served in groups of three and make the perfect accompaniment to a great cup of coffee.
