We revisited Cafe Du Monde, our first time was about 18 years ago. It hasn't changed (except for the flood wall). The beignets yummmmmm, the cafe au lait was excellent (both the hot and the cold). Straightforward. You look for a seat (it is always...More

Don't fret on the "line" - this moves fast and worth it. Great Price and prepare for powdered sugar face - and everywhere else.

The line to get in looked super long, but it goes fast! Didn’t even wait an hour. It’s super packed, but it doesn’t feel overwhelming. The beignets are so freaking delicious. Worth a wait!!!

Best to stop by in the week rather than the weekend. You can find a seat quickly. Beignets are the best. There is now a restaurant in the Riverwalk Outlet. You can sit in A/C there!

of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

Yes there are places to sit but it's not really in a building. It's a large pavilion with open external walls and very crowded from morning until around 6-7 pm. The noise level might not be conducive for a meeting.
