Coffee and Beignets at Cafe Du Monde

Since 1862, Cafe Du Monde French Market Coffee Stand has been churning out beignets as fast as the customers can devour them. Chances are you will have to wait in a considerable line to sit down at a table in their large outdoor cafe, but when you bite into one of the three squares of dough, fried in cottonseed oil and buried in mountains of sweet powered sugar, you will understand why. Combined with a fresh iced coffee, it's the perfect refueling stop either before or after a stroll along the Mississippi River, only a block away.
