While I am all about a deep fried dough, this was good, but I felt they were better at the du monde kioske in the mall. Do get the coffee with chickory but get it iced unless you want to melt from the inside out

lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
