Cafe Du Monde: "beignets anyone?" Cafe du Monde Tip by Tom_In_Madison

Cafe du Monde, New Orleans: 39 reviews and 66 photos

  3 beignets
by Tom_In_Madison

Maybe the most famous eating spot in New Orleans. If you've ever had the Italian food 'zeppole', you know what these are. They're the same thing, dough fried, and smothered in powdered sugar. I had an order, 3 big ones for $2.50. They were good, but 3 is a big order, you may want to split an order with someone.

They are also known for their chicory coffee, I don't drink coffee so can't comment.
