No trip to New Orleans would be complete without a trip to the famous Cafe Du Monde for some hot, milky cafe au lait and freshly fried beignets covered in powdered sugar.
Although there was a line for beignets to go, there were plenty of tables available in the large seating area under the awning when we stopped by for a late afternoon snack. J had plenty of space to run around and was originally reluctant to taste a beignet until we convinced her to take a bite. Then she couldn’t get enough and wound up sporting a spectacular powdered sugar mustache. Who could blame her? The beignets are piping hot, crispy on the outside, chewy in the middle, and the perfect vehicle for a mountain of powdered sugar. Cafe Du Monde is definitely a New Orleans institution that shouldn’t be missed.
