New Orleans, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways: 1) Beignets 2) Jazz Fest 3) Beignets 4) Jackson Square 5) Did we mention beignets? We've clearly got a thing for those delightful squares of fried dough coated in powdered sugar.
No trip to New Orleans is complete without a visit to the original French Quarter Café Du Monde for beignets and coffee au lait. This quintessential New Orleans experience is well worth the wait if there is a line, well worth being covered in powdered sugar when you leave.
