United States Louisiana New Orleans

Cafe Du Monde French Market

Iconic New Orleans coffee shop famous for beignets and chicory coffee, open 24/7 in the French Quarter.

Tips from the community

What’s a trip to New Orleans without sampling some of those famous beignets? Make your way over to the open-air Café du Monde and find a table where you can dig into this sweet French-inspired fried dough. This place will be swarmed in a matter of hours—usually around this time, however, there is little to no wait, so snag a seat while you can! Tip: Don’t wear black here as you’ll get powdered sugar all over! Order your beignets ($3) with a side of chicory coffee ($4). Cash only.
