A trip to NOLA is not complete without a stop at Cafe Du Monde. When we first arrived, we headed directly to Cafe Du Monde and were not disappointed. Seriously, who can be disappointed with hot beignets and coffee?! We did have to wait in a pretty sizable line which snakes around the building almost all day long. If you're not into lines? No problem, I discovered during our recent visit that no one in NOLA wakes up before 8am apparently. So if you're an early bird head to Cafe Du Monde early and enjoy beignets at the time when the rest of the world actually thinks "it's time to make the donuts!"

We went to Cafe Du Monde three times during our week long vacation. Twice in the take out line and once seated. Don’t let the lines intimidate you, it moves fast...especially the to go line.

Timing is everything here and at night is better when the cruise ships leave so you avoid the long lines. You have to go here so make it easy on yourself and choose a time wisely or wait in line. The Beignets are worth it, but standing in line can be frustrating so if it is too long come back later or spend the time.

So, my family came here on one of the nights that we were walking around. At night is less busy than in the day. The service was very fast and delightful. Our server was here on a work visa and it was interesting to find out about her working there and being able to travel. The beignets were very soft and delicious. Definitely not too sweet like a donut. The cappuccino was really good too. I ended up buying multiple cans of coffee to take home. It was very nice to just sit outside across from Jackson Square and listen to live music while eating the beignet and drinking coffee. A definite must do experience.

You always hear about the long lines, but we went hear on our way back from the Jazz clubs in Frenchmen street around 1:00AM and there was absolutely no line and they had warm fresh beignets ready to go. Absolutely delicious. It's a basically a fancier version of a funnel cake.
