|Why yes, that is a Bacon Bloody Mary!|
|Pretty, shinny things!|
Cafe Du Monde is a cash only traditional coffee shop. Their menu is limited to coffee, orange juice, milk (white or chocolate) and their famous beignets. Opening it's doors in 1862, they make their powdered french donuts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week...closing only on Christmas Day. The place was crowded and the line for "to go" wrapped around the outdoor patio and all the way to the curb. We decided to grab take out and eat in Jackson Square across the street. Those little deep fried pastries were delicious and the coffee was wonderfully tasty and strong.
Jackson Square was bustling with activity. People sight seeing and snapping photographs. Several bridal parties trying to capture that perfect shot to commemorate their special day. Plenty of benches for resting weary feet after hours of exploring the city on foot. Check out what Truman really thought of the beignets.
