Piety Street Sno-Balls
Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth
Even if you get powdered sugar all over your face, it's worth going to Café du Monde for a sweet treat with your sweet. Warning: each order comes with three beignets, so be prepared to share (or get two bags). Pralines are a thing in New Orleans and Aunt Sally's is a go-to in the French Quarter, but it's worth the trek to Pralines by Jean on St. Charles for what many argue are the creamiest pralines in town. If the weather is warm, head to Piety Street for a signature Vietnamese Coffee snoball. And you can never go wrong with a slice of Emeril Lagasse's banana cream pie.
