Cafe Du Monde

    • 4.0

I think everybody who visited New Orleans has been to here. This location is open for 24 hours, so they are always welcome whenever you want to come back.

"Beignets were also brought to Louisiana by the Acadians. These were fried fritters, sometimes filled with fruit. Today, the beignet is a square piece of dough, fried and covered with powdered sugar. They are served in orders of three." 

How many Beignets did I eat? I don't remember! Coz can' stop eating!

They use cottonseed oil since they opened in 1862. I was thinking there was a sad history related with cotton field behind a discrimination era while I was eating.

I believe this is a mandatory experience when in New Orleans. Beignets at Caf du Monde w a cafe au lait. Fresh out of the fryer, dust off (or not) as much powdered sugar and bite in! The beignets themselves are not sweetened so you can have it at your preferred level of sweetness. Dunk some in the coffee too!

Finally when someone mentions Cafe Du Monde, I can say been there done that (twice) . We got to Nola super late at night, but Cafe Du Monde opens 24/7 so ofcourse my late super was some beignets and cafe au lait. There are a lot of hypes about beignets but tbh I was indifferent to them. They tasted like our Vietnamese snack, bnh tiu (technically another fried dough type but in round shape lol) The only difference was beignets come with confectionary sugar. But you should always get a cafe au lait (sounds fancy but just coffee with hot milk) because the beignets at some point can get pretty greasy. The unsweetened coffee will balance out the flavor. It's nothing too crazy but hey, if you're in Nola and have not paid a visit to Cafe Du Monde, you cant really brag that you've been to Nola I strongly suggest that you go at night, because the line can get pretty ridiculous during the day.

Reason we're the coolest: went to New Orleans and didn't realize it was Mardi Gras. Reason : we recovered quickly by getting in a 20 minute line at cafedumonde for beignets and cafe au lait. #YES Now we're sitting on the steps outside listening to a Swiss marching band. 12 hours in New Orleans and it's going SPLENDIDLY so far! We're going to districtpies next! Your recommendations are AMAZING. (Muses last night was soooo goooood.)

I can't say anything bad about Cafe Du Monde. Worth the walk or cab ride, whatever it takes just get there! It was a great mood setter to sit in a covered patio, having cafe au lait and beignets. The coffee tastes fantastic, and the beignets are perfectly fried . There was also a jazz band playing, and it's fun to people watch in Jackson Square.

This is a great place to experience the lovely beignets of New Orleans.

When I went, there was little to no crowd so the service was very quick.

I've passed a couple of times when they looked fairly busy, but the service is always quick; the line was reduced within 10 minutes!

 

Overall, this is a great place to visit if you'd like to know what all the fuss about beignets is about.

This place is a great place for those unfamiliar with New Orleans. You can get your authentic beignets and chicory coffee in one stop and at a reasonable price. I love that the seating is open to the outside. It can get a little noisy when it's full (and it usually is) but New Orleans is a thriving city and this little eatery is no different!
