Beignets are these amazingly delicious French style donuts shaped in a square covered with powdered sugar. It is a Southern favorite and a must-have whilst in New Orleans. 

Cafe Du Monde is a cafe serving up these yummy bites 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The original one was established in 1862. It has a menu that consists of beignets, coffee, hot chocolate and milk. Their signature drink, the cafe au lait is served with their signature chicory coffee mixed with half and half and hot milk.

CAFE AU LAIT COFFEE ($2.73 FOR SMALL): The coffee was ok for me. It wasn't too strong and it almost tasted watered down. I guess I've had better cafe au lait's in my life, and this place wasn't my favorite. It did go well with the beignets so you can get one and try for yourself. 
MY FAVORITE DISH. BEIGNETS (ORDER OF 3 FRENCH DOUGHNUTS-$2.73). The beignets were actually really good. It wasn't piping hot when we got them. The exterior was crispy while the interior was light and not too dense. I didn't realize I loved things covered in powdered sugar so much. Definitely try this out!

Overall, Cafe Du Monde is pretty legit. The beignets were delicious and I now know why this place is famous. I thoroughly appreciate how it's open 24/7, which helps for those late night munchies. This location is outdoor seating. The bathroom is pretty horrendous. The service is quick and easy, paying at the time of the order. For a quick, easy, delicious breakfast, snack, or dessert, this is a winner.

  1. The food at this venue was excellent, as was the service, many of our friends and family still rave about it. My wife and I highly recommend these venues Chicago. We came here again for dinner and everything was again good and the service was extremely fast.
