This was our first port of call in NOLA, as I'd heard rave reviews about it and boy did it ever live up to the recommendations!?
Beignets and cafe au lait is pretty much the extent of their menu, they do soft drinks etc, but this is what they're famous for, and this is what you want!
The beignets have a serious amount of powdered sugar on them, but they are delicious (and hugely unhealthy but they definitely give you the energy you need to get around the city!) and the price is good too.
Beyond the food, I got very emotional sitting here. I felt as though I was in a wee cafe in Paris, it was almost magical (aside from the birds and bird-poop!). The musicians change almost daily and I gave my first couple dollar bills here to the guy entertaining us while we ate.
Don't miss this place - add it to your to-do list!
