Travel writer and photographer providing travel inspiration and reviews
As someone who has visited New Orleans around 20 times, I will be the first to tell you that Cafe Du Monde is not oversold. It is, in fact, every bit as good as everyone tells you it is.
Although you will find several Cafe Du Monde locations spread out through the city, nothing quite beats the original. Open 24/7, seating is offered outdoors under a shelter. Nothing is better than getting fresh beignets paired with the famous Cafe Du Monde coffee. One tip that I would offer is to not wear black! The generous powdered sugar is sure to end up on your clothing one way or another. Don't worry, it's definitely worth it!
