Nom nom nom! A trip to New Orleans isn't complete until you've had at least one serving of Cafe Du Monde's legendary beignets. PRO TIP: The cafe is open 24/7, so you can avoid the crowds by stopping in later at night. Just try to be careful if you bring a bag back to the hotel, or you'll end up dusting the whole place with powdered sugar!Recommended for:Foodies

Sure, it's touristy, but they make the best beignets your lips will ever touch. Made fresh, and at $2 for 3 you'll be tempted to order a dozen. Their cafe au lait is wonderful, and you'll want to take a can of their chicory coffee home with you. Open 24 hours a day!

Stop at the Cafe Du Monde anytime of the day; it's open 24 hours! Don't come for the ambience, because it's not much to look at. Come for the beignets (French donuts that are loaded with powdered sugar) and the coffee.

Do not leave New Orleans without having Beignets! Those fluffy, powdery pillows of dough are to die for. I have heard that you can skip the wait if you go later in the evening instead of in the morning.

Great people watching spot across from Jackson Square. I'd advise going early the first day and grabbing an order of Beignets and a cup of cafe au lait (about $6 total cost). And if, like I did, you decide they make the perfect combo pick me up, you can swing by the to go line in the back of the place for several more classic Neworleanean experiences. Very, very messy - if you get a bag of 3 to go, you'll have a pound of powdered sugar in the bag that will get on everything. Fun though!

came here twice in our stay. what's not to love? easy seating, no waiting (not when we were there anyway), affordable beignets, huge pieces, great coffee, in and out, free jazz music (pls tip them!)
