Your guide on this iconic New Orleans coffee and beignets staple.

Open 24 Hours

Menu: Includes only dark-roasted coffee with chicory (served black or au lait), beignets, white and chocolate milk, hot chocolate, and fresh-squeezed orange juice. According to the Café du Monde’s vice-president, Burton E. Benrud, Jr., the beignets remain the only food item on the French Market location’s menu; and Café du Monde is committed to “keeping things the way they’ve always been.”

You can really have fun in New Orleans without visiting Cafe du Monde. “The French brought coffee with them as they began to settle along the Gulf Coast and the Mississippi River, circa 1700. During the American Civil Warthe New Orleans Creoles developed the chicoryblended coffee (as there was a coffee shortage) — which has continued to be served at Café du Monde and other New Orleans restaurants.

Chicory adds a chocolate-like flavor to café au lait. The Acadians (Cajuns) from Nova Scotia brought other French customs, such as the beignet, to Louisiana in the 18th century. Unlike most doughnuts, beignets are squared pieces of dough with no hole in the middle and are most often covered with powdered sugar. Sometimes they are seen served with fruit, jam, maple syrup, or even savory items. At Café du Monde, the beignets are served with a thick coating of powdered sugar and sold in orders of three.
