Grab a bite at Café DuMonde
One of the main reasons tourists come to this part of the city is to go to the famous Café du Monde. Established in 1862 and located on Decatur Street, it is the original coffee shop of the French Quarter. Café du Monde offers an enormous outdoor seating area that often fills up around breakfast and brunch, when visitors come for beignets and café au laits. Beignets are the square shaped French style doughnut, deep fried and covered in powdered sugar. They can also found at Morning Call, another historic café in New Orleans.
