Cafe Du Monde - £
Cafe du Monde is a tourist haven. Here you can experience the infamous Beignets which have become an iconic sweet dish to New Orleans since 1862. If you don't know what a Beignet is, well its a deep fried fritter, sometimes filled with fruit, however these ones are square and covered in powdered sugar (a lot of sugar!)
Its inexpensive to eat here, plus they come in sets of 3 so great to share with a group of as a couple. Grab a coffee while you sample there. Be warned... if you don't like being amongst crowds of tourists then this place isn't for you.
Located in the French market in the French quarter, at 800 Decatur Street, 70116 New Orleans.
