Sugary beignets, 24 hours a day
Yes, beignets and café au lait are the quintessential New Orleans
treat. Visitors who plan to venture beyond the French Quarter should make plans to sit and linger at the Morning Call, a charming cafe set in the midst of The Big Easy’s vast City Park. It's just a short walk from the New Orleans Museum of Art. A more tranquil and less harried environment than Cafe du Monde, the Morning Call serves coffee and beignets 24 hours a day, along with jambalaya, gumbo, ice cream and other treats. Stop at an ATM on the way; Morning Call is cash only.
