The famous place for suger coated beignets. You have to go when you're in N.O. You sit outside under a canopy in the cool air and plant your face into a pile of suger and dough. I'v never had anything else there. It's always been "that beignet place under the tent".

Awesome beignets, cafe au lait and fresh squeezed orange juice. It's the first place we visit and the last place before we leave for home. You can buy some mix and make them up at home but they're much better with the New Orlean's atmosphere!

Cafe du Monde has made the word BEIGNET famous worldwide. Those heavily powered sugared pastries are a sweet-lover's dream!!!! In addition to the beignets, their cafe au lait is awesome, and their orange juice is some of the best I've ever had. This location is BUSY, BUSY, BUSY and you might have a wait for a table if you have more than 4 in a group, so beware...but do come as its the best experience for this little money!!! CHEAP!

This is a must! The floor is covered in powdered sugar from all of the beignets. This is a wonderful spot to start, and end your day, walking through the French Market then on to partying in the French Quarter. Except for Christmas, it is open every day-all day.

I visited cafe du monde this past spring while on an alternate spring break in new orleans. The service is great, the food is even better, and the atmosphere is unparalleled. Also, try to make a visit down to New Orleans to help with the rebuilding effort. With the work of volunteers this historic city can move past the destruction and tragedy of Katrina.

When we are there, we go twice a day--once for breakfast and again at night. Be sure to go around back and watch them being cooked and don't wear anything black--you will be covered with powdered sugar.

When in New Orleans this is a place you have to go to. The food and coffee are incredible. The atmosphere is great. You can't find a place like this anywhere but New Orleans.
